The paper presents a method for monitoring the flow conditions in pipelines in the case of transport of crystallising water slurries forming scale. The method’s core is the ability to calculate the equivalent pipeline diameter under varying flow conditions in industrial practice. The method was successfully tested in the laboratory and employed in an industrial plant.
