Very high viscosity
Hi all,

problem: I am pushing very high viscosity oil at 2000cST - 875kg/m3, trough a porous filter media.
At 300 centistokes there is no problem, I get a pressure drop over the filter comparable to test results from a lab.

Could it be that the oil is so viscous at 2000cST, that other phenomena are interfering with my simulation?

For that much high viscosity of oil, did you check whether flow has become laminar or not !
