Kurita Geothermal Technology: Kuritherm®

Geothermal is a strong candidate to make green energy transition from fossil-based resources to renewables. To provide non-stop 7/24 sustainable energy generation in terms of heat and power, Kurita has a full product range to protect geothermal systems from scaling and corrosion.

What are the challenges of geothermal systems?

  • Scaling in production well – resulting in clogging of wellbore and production loss
  • Corrosion in production well – resulting in damage of well equipment and loss of well
  • Corrosion at surface facilities – causes damage on brine gathering system and plant area, increasing operational costs due to longer downtime
  • Scaling at surface facilities – causes a decrease of production and decrease of heat transfer capacity, energy loss, and increase of operational cost
  • Scaling in re-injection well – causes higher operational costs and affects the sustainability of the geothermal reservoir

Chemical treatment is one of the essential applications of all types of geothermal utilization. There are different approaches to treatment programs, such as avoiding damages and performance enhancement techniques. Kuritherm® products are accordant with the co-precipitation mechanism of several minerals in geothermal flow.  

Milestones to offer innovative solutions supporting the energy of the future:

  • The technical approach for shallow and deep geothermal treatment
  • Full product range for all types of power generation systems
  • Full product range for direct use applications
  • Protection of cooling tower, separation station, heat exchangers, valves, pumps, and piping units
  • Environmentally friendly product profile for the injection well surveillance
  • Online monitoring system and manual tools to track downhole and surface treatment programs
