ERPE Research Impact

Research that has a huge impact on society and industry has emerged from across our four themes. In these case studies we highlight some of our achievements over recent years.

Avoiding blockages caused by mineral scale deposits is a major priority for oil producers. Yet combating scale build-up to stop it jeopardising well productivity is complex and costly. ERPE research has saved the industry hundreds of millions of pounds with computer software - SQUEEZE - that enables companies to plan the best scale-inhibiting treatment from project outset.

ERPE research and development of XiTRACK technology has reduced rail track maintenance by a factor of up to 40, increased maintenance intervals from 3-monthly to 10 years and increased track speeds to 125 mph in critical sections of UK, Italy and Hong Kong rail networks.
