Course overview
The Pipeline Toolbox is home to many tools and calculators. The PLTB User’s Guide presents information, guidelines and procedures for use during design, and operations tasks for field or office applications.
Pipeline pumps are used for boosting pressures and for transferring product in both gathering and mainline transmission systems. The properties of fluid to be transported have significant impact on pipeline system design. For liquid lines, the liquid properties which affect pipeline design are Viscosity, Density and Specific Heat   These properties are influenced by the pressure and temperature. Temperature considerably affects the above properties in liquid pipelines and, specifically, crude oil or heavy crude oil pipelines. Viscosity is also affected by the liquids’ shear rate.
