Water with Salting Issues
In many gas wells the water that enters the well bore contains various amounts of salts (sodium chloride and other salts) dissolved in the water. Often, as the fluid moves up the casing or tubing, these dissolved salts will precipitate out and reduce the opening in the pipe and in some instances totally plug the pipe .If the well is bridged over with salt accumulation, it will be necessary to treat the well with 5 to 10 gallons of liquid salt dissolver. This will clean out any major deposits in perforations and casing. Allow approximately two hours for the material to dissolve salt crystals. If the salt problem is not too severe the salt dissolver may be diluted up to 50% with fresh water. The Salt Max helps keep the salt in solution by salt chelating action and helps prevent this build up from occurring. In order to be effective the Salt Max stick should be used regularly two or three times per week. In most wells, 1-2 sticks per treatment should be sufficient. Treatment amounts can be increased for large water volume situations. Salt Max sticks will normally dissolve in 20 to 80 minutes depending on temperature, salt content, and relative water motion. They are 100% soluble in water, will not foam, and their melting point is around 120° F. We suggest using a soap stick or liquid soap after the Salt Max stick as part of the well treatment.
