    Abstract

    A discussion of the composition of industrial water and water-formed deposits must include the terms used by different industries, methods of reporting results of analyses, methods of interpreting these analyses, and systems for converting results of analyses into other terms that may be better understood by the users of water. In addition, the composition of water must be classified so that a particular user can choose the best supply for his purpose or forecast what difficulties might arise from the use of the water available. A user should know the general composition of his water and how it changes with the seasons. If deposits occur, he should be able to identify or classify the type of deposit formed so that he can trace its source and decide upon remedies.
