Bulk transfer systems are part of very important bulk material transferring systems used on drilling rigs, and mainly provide and transfer pulverous material for offshore drilling rigs. The authors use the continuity equation of fluid flow, Bernoulli equation, Theory of energy loss, and gas-solid two phase flow theory to evaluate the bulk transfer ability of the bulk system for the CPOE-16 Jack-up, and to optimize the bulk piping layout, elbow radius and elbow quantity. These research results have been applied to the CPOE-16 Jack-up and have proven that implementation of these results can be effective.
