Study into the risk of deposit formation by cooling in thermal water (2006)

Study into the risk of deposit formation by cooling in thermal water (2006)

Goal: to identify, by means of a geochemical model, the risk of deposits through the thermal water cooling from 53°C to 36°C.

  • Measuring physical and chemical parameters and taking samples of the thermal water
  • Chemical analysis of the thermal water: major anions and cations, dissolved sulphides, dissolved and total iron
  • Bacteriological analysis of the thermal water: iron bacteria, sulphate-reducing bacteria (SRB) and thiosulphate-reducing bacteria (TRB)
  • Analysis of the gaseous fraction: gas/liquid ratio (GLR), analysis of the free and dissolved gases
  • Study into the risk of deposit formation by geochemical modelling using the SOLMINEQ system
