The number of Corrosion Inhibitor Stick Type C required is based on the severity of the problem being encountered and the volume of water to be treated. The best results are achieved by using an initial slug treatment of 1 stick per 10 barrels of water to be treated. The period of time between treatments will be dictated by the severity of the problem. EXAMPLE: An initial treatment of 24 barrels (1000 gallons) of water would be approximately two sticks.
Note: To successfully control corrosion problems, the inhibitor must have adequate contact time. A minimum of two hours shut-in is recommended for gas wells. This will allow the stick to clean the system and lay down a good inhibitor film.
