# Slurry Volume Calculator

Do you want to determine the volume of slurry based on specific parameters? Use this slurry volume calculator, it is very useful for various industries, including construction, mining, and chemical processing.

For calculation fill your input in the calculator as volume of resin settled by gravity, percent slurry, into the calculator. The calculator will display slurry volume in the result box.

For advance level calculation, switch calculator to advance mode and provide the total volume, volume of solids, desired slurry density in the input fields of the calculator. By pressing calculate button, it will show you required resin volume in the output field.

### What is Slurry Volume?

Slurry volume is the total volume of a mixture of solid particles and liquid. The volume of slurry is influenced by the volume of solids and the percentage of slurry in the mixture.

### How to Use the Calculator

- Enter the volume of resin settled by gravity (Vgs) in milliliters (mL).
- Enter the percent slurry (S) in the mixture.
- The calculator will compute the slurry volume (SV) using the given formula.

### How to Calculate Slurry Volume

**Formula:**

The formula to calculate slurry volume is:

$SV = \frac{Vgs \times 100}{S}$

**Variables:**

SV | $$
is the Slurry Volume (mL) |

Vgs |
is the volume of resin settled by gravity (mL) |

S |
is the percent slurry (%) |

### Example Calculations

**Basic Example 1**

Volume of Resin (mL) | Percent Slurry (%) | Slurry Volume (mL) |
---|---|---|

200 | 50 | 400 |

Given:

- Volume of resin = 200 mL
- Percent slurry = 50%

Using the formula:

$SV = \frac{200 \times 100}{50} = 400 \, \text{mL}$

**Basic Example 2**

Volume of Resin (mL) | Percent Slurry (%) | Slurry Volume (mL) |
---|---|---|

150 | 30 | 500 |

Given:

- Volume of resin = 150 mL
- Percent slurry = 30%

Using the formula:

$SV = \frac{150 \times 100}{30} = 500 \, \text{mL}$

**Advanced Example 1**

Total Volume (mL) | Volume of Solids (mL) | Desired Slurry Density (g/mL) | Required Resin Volume (mL) |
---|---|---|---|

500 | 200 | 1.2 | 240 |

Given:

- Total volume = 500 mL
- Volume of solids = 200 mL
- Desired slurry density = 1.2 g/mL

Using the advanced formula:

$\text{RequiredResinVolume}=$

$\text{Required Resin Volume} = \frac{(\text{Desired Density} \times \text{Total Volume}) – \text{Volume of Solids}}{1 – \text{Desired Density}} = \frac{(1.2 \times 500) – 200}{1 – 1.2} = 240 \, \text{mL}$

**Advanced Example 2**

Total Volume (mL) | Volume of Solids (mL) | Desired Slurry Density (g/mL) | Required Resin Volume (mL) |
---|---|---|---|

600 | 250 | 1.5 | 300 |

Given:

- Total volume = 600 mL
- Volume of solids = 250 mL
- Desired slurry density = 1.5 g/mL

Using the advanced formula:

$\text{RequiredResinVolume}=$

$\text{Required Resin Volume} = \frac{(\text{Desired Density} \times \text{Total Volume}) – \text{Volume of Solids}}{1 – \text{Desired Density}} = \frac{(1.5 \times 600) – 250}{1 – 1.5} = 300 \, \text{mL}$

### FAQs

**What is slurry volume?**

It is the total volume of a mixture of solid particles and liquid.

**How is slurry volume measured?**

Slurry volume is measured with this formula: SV = Vgs × 100/S, where SV is the slurry volume, Vgs is the volume of resin settled by gravity, and S is the percent slurry.

**Why is it important to calculate the slurry volume?**

It is important to calculate the slurry volume in construction and mining industries because accurate calculations ensure effectiveness and proper use of resources.
