Acetic Acid is a versatile substance that can be utilized as a substitute for or in combination with Hydrochloric Acid in both matrix and fracture acidizing processes. It is commonly employed in conjunction with Hydrochloric Acid, particularly when equipment with limited resistance to Hydrochloric Acid corrosion is involved. Here are the specifications for Acetic Acid:
Acetic acid, glacial: 99% or higher purity
Freezing Point: Approximately 16°C
Heavy Metals (as ppm Pb-lead): Less than 0.5
Iron (as ppm Fe): Less than 0.5
Specific Gravity: 1.05 at 20°C
Acetic Acid Uses in Water Treatment
