Chapter VIII—Analysis of Water-Formed Deposits


Many of the difficulties which arise during the industrial use of water are closely related to water-formed sludges, scales, and corrosion products. The composition of such deposits can be interpreted to provide a guide for practical preventive treatment of either the water or its environment. In the proper hands, complete and detailed information concerning water-formed deposits can be useful; however, unless this information is accurate, it can be misleading. Accordingly, reliable methods should be available for the analyses of carefully selected samples.
