Abstract

An innovative method for inplace scale removal has been developed and demonstrated. Injection of carbon dioxide gas into a piping system can lower the pH of the hot water and remove or prevent scale. The carbon dioxide injection may be continuous or scheduled. This paper reviews the technique and examines some of the laboratory information affecting implementation of the technique.
