A FREE webinar offered as part of the Solenis InSights webinar series.
Date: November 18, 2021
Time: 9:00 a.m. Central European Time
Duration: 1 Hour
The formation of scale within geothermal production wells, reinjection wells and surface equipment frequently results in challenging and costly problems for geothermal power producers. The most common types of scale plaguing geothermal operations include calcite deposition in production wells and silica/silicate deposition in reinjection wells and surface equipment.
During this FREE webinar, three cutting-edge solutions for mitigating calcite and silica/silicate deposition will be discussed. These solutions, which were developed specifically for geothermal applications, include novel scale control chemistries, an advanced performance modeling tool and state-of-the-art monitoring systems that provide real-time measurement of scale. These solutions enable geothermal power producers to proactively address scaling and, thereby, improve megawatt efficiency, reduce operational costs and extend equipment life.
Laboratory Group Manager, Water Applications
Michael Bluemle is the group leader of Solenis’ water applications laboratory in Wilmington, Delaware.
