Brine Concentrator Scaling

Published on by in Academic

We have a problem with anhydrite (CaSO4) scaling on heat transfer surfaces of a series of brine concentrators (mostly MgSO4 at 20 – 40% TDS and pH 0.8 – 2.0).

How can we reduce scaling?

The usual approach of controlling elevated total suspended solids (TSS) is only partially successful.
