Periodic Table of Scaling Compounds

Scale is a crust that forms on membrane and evaporator surfaces, blocking performance. Scaling occurs when ion pairs precipitate out of solution. Know your scaling potential with this free periodic table of scaling compounds and the conditions that cause them to precipitate.
