Most industrial applications involve flow through pipes in the world today, besides water piping many other fluids are being transported through pipes such as petroleum, sludge, drilling mud, chemicals which are of various viscosity and shear-stress profiles which affects flow performance. Therefore in this study, research is conducted on non-Newtonian polymer fluids with viscosity effects flowing through a flow loop piping; flow characteristics data is taken in order to the determine entrance length for the flow and is compared with water. Results are documented and delineated; the successful completion of this study is expected to contribute in assuring accurate data collection from such pipes in order to fill the gap of the limited studies conducted in this field as well as prevent pressure losses and velocity drops in industrial pipelines.
