Description

WET Center Project: Development of Rapid Methods to Assess the Efficacy of Physical Water Treatment Development of Rapid Methods to Assess the Efficacy of Physical Water Treatment Physical water treatment processes have the ability to prevent scale formation without the addition of chemicals. The majority of physical water treatment devices result in the formation of microscopic calcium carbonate crystals. As water flows to a more scale-inducing environment, the microscopic crystals are the most energetically favorable surface for crystalline growth instead of surfaces. The successful result is no scale formation on surfaces. Methods to assess the success of physical water treatment devices require large volumes of water and one month to complete. There is a need to rapidly assess physical water treatment devices to both determine their efficacy and provide quality control in real world application.
