The study of the flow behaviour of splitting device for horizontal pipeline was conducted by using the numerical simulation. The splitting device is functionally to force the roping flow to become homogenous. The study scrutinised the air flow in the pipeline, and also the air flow with particle which is anthracite injected into air in the pipeline. A piping system with 5 different type of splitting device is simulated to find the best splitting device that can make the roping flow become homogenous and improved the roping problem. The simulation was conducted by using the Ansys Fluent. From this study, it can be concluded that the splitting device, does help successfully in reducing the roping problem in the horizontal pipeline.
