STP148D: Chapter VIII—Sampling and Identification of Water-Formed Deposits

    Pages: 20    Published: Jan 1960


    Pure water in an uncorrodible vessel would never leave a deposit. Although this ideal case has been very nearly reached in some instances, deposits are still found in most water or steam systems. The examination and analysis of these deposits provides the person responsible for water treatment with information about phenomena in the water system, and will frequently indicate to him the means for correcting the condition that caused the deposit.
