Materials Problems Associated With the Development of Geothermal Energy Resources.
NTIS: PB 254 990 Available for Reference At Bureau Libraries :44 pages
Representatives of the Geothermal User Industry, the Corrosion and Scaling Research Laboratories, and the metals industry held a workshop-meeting to discuss various materials problems associated with the development of geothermal resources, and to prepare preliminary outlines of areas where research is required. The problems associated with the development of the geothermal brines of the Imperial Valley, California, were the primary subjects. The corrosion and scaling of materials and equipment is a major problem and the development of resistant materials and specialized equipment were discussed. Chemistries of and laboratory gas solubilities in brines were presented.
