The French Creek Mission
Popularizing the daily use of advanced physical chemistry
French Creek Software, Inc. was founded in 1989 with the mission of
providing software to aid the water treatment chemist in identifying and
solving scale and corrosion related problems. The various French Creek
program series address the specific needs of cooling water systems, reverses
osmosis, oil field water treatment and potable water -- as well as water
Within these application specific series, version are available for
field specialists to assist in selecting and optimizing treatments; for the
formulator developing inhibitor blends for specific applications, and for
the researcher, who wishes to model the performance of an inhibitor package.

Ion Association Model
French Creek modeling applications apply a complex approach for modeling
mineral scale, but with a friendly software interface.
A typical French Creek program simultaneously models 18+ saturation
levels and their interactions. Each saturation ratio calculated compares hundreds of possible ion pair
combinations, finding the most likely distribution of species.
The use of ion pairing to estimate the free concentrations
of reactants overcomes several of the major shortcomings
of traditional indices. Indices such as LSI correct
activity coefficients for ionic strength based upon the total
dissolved solids. They do not account for "common ion"
effects. Common ion effects increase the apparent
solubility of a compound by reducing the concentration of
The end result is a transportable, reliable means of predicting
mineral scale formation.
