Sedimentation and deposition in and on products and process equipment impedes their use. Heating systems may calcify to such an extent that efficiency drops, or circulation pumps need to work harder (thus wasting energy). With the use of 3D X-ray techniques, sedimentations can be pinpointed, identified and their compositions mapped. It is a toolbox offering a route develop new means of removal or to completely avoid sedimentations e.g. through improved design.
