    Liquid Rock - Prevening Scale Formation from Ground Water Hardness

    Groundwater is in contact with soil and rock minerals. Significant amounts of the minerals are dissolved in the groundwater. Elevated water hardness is the result of the water interaction and partial dissolution of carbonate minerals. Scale formation is a crystallisation process. Crystals are a highly organised arrangement of molecules. The determining circumstances for a successful crystallisation event include concentration, temperature, pressure and chemical environment. Suitable conditions for the formation...

    Phosphonate Testing in Hard Water

    Testing phosphonates in hard water can be difficult due to interference from high levels of calcium. Here we present a phosphonate test method for hard water samples. The method is based on a chemical masking of the calcium. The WAT hard water phosphonate test uses C30 Spectrophotometer to measure the chromogen PMB and digital thermoreactor to digest the phosphonate compound. The thermoreactor capacity of 16 simultaneous vials provides for running critical data quality assurance samples.
