The paper deals with experimental investigation of the dense fine-grained slurries focused on the slurry pressure drops versus average velocity relationship. The content of fine, especially colloidal solid particles evokes a complex non-Newtonian behaviour of the slurry. Flow behaviour of dense slurry depends on particle size distribution, shape, density and chemical composition of the solid phase as well as on concentration of solids and carrier liquid properties. The re-circulation pipe loop with horizontal hydraulically smooth stainless steel pipes was used for measuring the slurry flow parameters. Different slurries containing kaolin, stony dust or sand conveyed in water were measured to document effect of the size distribution and chemical composition on the slurry flow behaviour.
