Title: A disc pig model for estimating the mixing volumes between product batches in multi-product pipelines

Abstract: IN MULTI-PRODUCT PIPELINES, mixing occurs between the product batches. A new model for estimating the mixing volume, developed by modelling the leading interface as a concentric disc similar to the action of a separation pig, is presented in this paper. Comparison with field data and other models shows that the proposed new model is reliable over a wider range of flow conditions.
