Material loss due to erosion wear is a serious problem associated with flow of solid-liquid mixtures. Slurry erosion limits the useful life of equipment and is therefore a critical parameter for design, selection and operation of the hydraulic transportation system. Engineering interest is to estimate the service life of quipment / components subjected to slurry erosion and to investigate the possibilities of enhancement of their life. Various researchers have put their efforts to study the wear mechanism of Brass material. In the present work, erosion wear tests have been carried out in a slurry pot tester for brass material to find out the optimum position of wear sample holding arrangement with reference to bottom propeller. This is necessary because erosion
wear rate and material removal mechanism change according to the position of test sample. For that it is necessary to develop different extra attachment with sample holding arrangement. The Experiments are conducted at a constant velocity, particle size and solid concentration of particles with varying impact angle ranging from 15o to 90o with different height of sample holding arrangement. The experimental result shows the rate of erosion wear at different impact angle for the different condition with varying sample holding arrangement height.. So above work is help to find the optimum position of sample in sample holding arrangement with respect to bottom propeller to improve the erosion wear and material removal mechanism.
