Item Code test : Differential Scale Loop
DSL: The Differential Scale Loop is a tube blocking system as fully automated laboratory device to examine the precipitation and deposition of sacle and salt at simulated pipeline and water pipe conditions.
The DSL was particularly developed to observe the process of barium sulphate and calcium carbonate (scale) forming under realistic conditions and to design counteractive measures.This is carried out in three steps:
- Determine the risk of scale deposition.
- Selection or development of an inhibitor.
- Test the efficiency of an inhibitor and determine the minimal necessary inhibitor concentration.
