Scale Inhibitor

U.S. Water introduced ScaleGone and ScaleGone CI, an innovative, long-lasting (up to several years),  slow-release, solid scale inhibitor (SI) and a combined SI/corrosion inhibitor (CI) for hydraulic-fracturing fluids as well as use in producing wells. ScaleGone solid SI particles, which measure the same size as proppant, can be introduced during stimulation treatment, ensuring distribution throughout the well fracture (Fig. 2). Safe to use with other stimulation products, ScaleGone slowly releases into well produced fluids. In addition, ScaleGone can be introduced into already-producing wells. ScaleGone and ScaleGone CI are slow-release products, providing long-lasting scale and corrosion protection up to several years depending on loading. These products can prevent deposition in the wellbore region and the tubing just as powerfully as they can at the formation face, to prevent scale and costly production problems. U.S. Water’s family of ScaleGone products can provide flow assurance and asset integrity throughout the life of a well, with no need for truck-treating liquid products or tanks and pumps for continuous feeding of liquid chemicals. ScaleGone helps ensure maximum well production by preventing scale deposits that reduce flow and helps provide extended well integrity with corrosion protection.
