Resident publishes forty-first article

John Wojtowicz has written an article titled Calculation of Aqueous Calcium Carbonate Scaling Potential via a Modified Langelier Equation that was published in The Analyst, which is a peer reviewed journal devoted to water treatment and technology. The article deals with development of an algorithm based on the chemistry and thermodynamics of the scaling process that allows computer calculation of the scaling potential which is a function of the water’s temperature, pH, alkalinity and calcium hardness. Scaling is a concern in numerous systems, e.g., municipal water distribution lines, cooling towers, boilers and heat exchangers.
