Scale-Inhibition and Corrosion Control
Scale typically occurs when minerals in produced water surpass saturation limits as pressures and temperatures change. Both scale buildup and corrosion can take a variety of forms, but when found in and on pipes, wells, tubing and equipment, the results are largely the same; reductions in flow rates, production and efficiency losses, and often damaged equipment and replacement costs. Across industries, effective water and wastewater treatment programs must take scale-inhibition and corrosion control into account to safeguard productivity, protect assets, and mitigate risks.
Quantified Scale Reduction
For nearly a decade, Ecosphere has successfully addressed some the most challenging scale and corrosion challenges in the world – cleanly and cost effectively. Ecosphere’s Ozonix® technology is an Advanced Oxidation Process that has been proven effective through independent laboratory tests and the billions of gallons of wastewater that have already been recycled and re-used in the oil and natural gas industry to control corrosion and inhibit scale formation across a broad range of minerals, eliminating costly biocides and reducing scale inhibitors needed for corrosion control.
