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 Express
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.
LSI (Carrier) Express
-2,0<-0,5 Severe corrosion
-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
