ghost82 will become famous soon enough
Single phase flow; after steady solution is reached enable dpm and set injection(s).

DPM is sufficient for your purpose. Pressure drop predicted by DPM without 2way coupling will be less than the actual value if your particle loading is more than 10%. So you can enable 2way interaction in this case.
