Scale Inhibitors

Scale Inhibitors

Scale deposition is one of the most common water related production issues, which occurs due to the buildup of inorganic salts from aqueous solutions. Temperature, pressure, and pH changes, mixing of incompatible brines, and other issues can facilitate the formation of scale at various points of the production process. Scale deposition can cause blockage within the well or in the near-well bore region, which can lead to a variety of negative production issues.
