In many industrial and municipal operations, the formation of inorganic or mineral scales, such as struvite (magnesium ammonium phosphate), represents an imminent problem because it reduces plant efficiency. Scales within pipe systems of a certain thickness may considerably reduce flow rate or even lead to a total blockage and can put increased strain on pumps. Mineral scales may also cause considerable damage to centrifuges, heat exchangers and pumps.
Solenis has decades of experience with scale formation across a variety of industrial, municipal and desalination operations. Our extended team of field professionals and laboratory scientists brings together the right combination of knowledge and practical experience to tackle even the most demanding scaling challenges. These professionals will work with your facility staff to evaluate both the unique needs of your operation as well as the environmental situation. For example, the source of feedwater, whether it’s fresh, brackish, waste or seawater, can have a dramatic impact on several important variables, such as pH, oxidizing potential and concentration of soluble salts. Understanding this big picture is critical to developing a successful scale treatment program.
We have built a reputation on our ability to solve even the most formidable scale problems, including those that involve barium and strontium sulfate, aluminum silica and calcium fluoride. In addition to a comprehensive portfolio of scale inhibitors, Solenis offers a full range of pretreatments, microbiological control agents and cleaners, plus sophisticated calculation software that can determine the best productto use, as well as the optimal treatment dose.
