Langelier Saturation Index Calculator
This calculator can help you determine the potential for water scaling by using the Langelier saturation index.
Give the value of the water analysis
The formula for calculating the Langelier saturation index:
The adaptability of LSI and the LSI improved by the carrier are based on the following values
|LSI<0||Saturated calcium carbonate solutions have a tendency to be coated with corroded pipes.|
|LSI=0||Water is considered neutral. Neither fouling nor descaling.|
|LSI>0||Saturated calcium carbonate solution (CaCO3) and scale formation may occur.|
|-0,5<0||Slight corrosion, but frontal formation|
|LSI = 0,0||Balance point, corrosion corrosion possible|
|0,0<0,5||Slight scale formation and corrosion|
|0,5<2||Scale formation but non-corrosive|
Here is the sample data from table 2: additional sample data.

Based on Langelier's (1936) representation:
Unsaturated calcium carbonate solution can corrode the protective coating of calcium carbonate existing in pipeline and equipment.
(1965) based on Langelier improved by carrier: severe corrosion.
