Several operational issues in industrial water systems result due to the deposition of unwanted materials on equipment surfaces consisting of mineral scales, suspended matter, corrosion products and microbiological mass. This article examines the performance of synthetic polymers and phosphonates as gypsum scale inhibitors. Inhibitory data on the performance of polymer/phosphonate blends as gypsum precipitation inhibitors is additionally displayed in this article.
