Identifying Scaling and Corrosion Residue with X-ray Diffraction

The effects of corrosion in pipelines and oil wells primarily take the form of an internal build-up of residue known as ‘scaling’, or ‘rusting’, which is a wearing away of the pipe or valve material itself. Corrosive residue is analysed to identify the specific phases and compounds involved. Common phases / compounds of corrosion include magnetite, barite, calcium carbonate, and gypsum. All these compounds and more are quickly and easily identified using X-ray diffraction (XRD). Download our free whitepaper for more information.
