Geothermal steam contains corrosive species such as H2S, CO2, and Cl- ions and in some cases even HCl gas. Materials in high temperature geothermal wells and power plant equipment subjected to the steam can experience severe corrosion resulting in high costs associated with maintenance, materials and loss in production. Also due to high heat and loads geothermal wells cemented casings experience high stresses and strains that can be detrimental to the design of the high temperature geothermal well.
Our experience in material research, selection and testing gives our customers the lead to succeed in their design and projects.
