The current work concerns experimental investigation of particle breakage in different types of bends during pneumatic and hydraulic conveying. The experiments performed using a hydraulic and pneumatic conveying experimental systems, which consists of 2 inch galvanized steel pipes. Several types of bends were checked, including: regular bends with various R/D ratios, blind T bend with various L/D ratios and flexible bends made of polymer material. By comparing between hydraulic and pneumatic conveying, the results show similar behaviour. The use of blind T bend with deeper pocket will result in less breakage than the regular bend in both conveying systems. The effect of particle velocity on the breakage of salt particles was checked by impact tests in liquid and air. In addition, the strength of dry and wet salt particles was checked by compression tests. It was found that the dry and wet salt particles have the same strength. Moreover, the approach particle velocity during the impact tests in liquid was found to be different from the real impact velocity. The analysis showed that the real impact velocity is half of the approach velocity for salt particles.
