Scale detection in geothermal systems: the use of nuclear monitoring techniques
Effective scale management requires on-line monitoring of scaling tendencies as well
as detection and identification of scale deposits. In that respect, the gamma-ray
attenuation technique and the gamma-tracer emission technique are examined in this
study for their capability of measuring in real-time the scale formation under field
conditions. Calcite formation has been investigated in the lab-scale in absence and
presence of scale inhibitors in the course of this work.
A number of runs have been successfully performed where the desired experimental
conditions have been evaluated and tested using both techniques. The obtained results
are presented here.
