Abstract: front page image
(EN)The water in a closed loop geothermal system (10) is caused to flush the system by reverse flow of water in and through the system (10). This provides a 'well-to-well' full reversal of the water flow, thus permitting the factor of a primary receiver well (30) to not only receive the geothermally used water from the primary well (14), but for that receiver well (36) to then serve as an aquifer subsequently for causing the flow to go back to the primary well (14).
(FR)L'eau située à l'intérieur d'un système géothermique en circuit fermé (10) lave ce système grâce à un courant d'eau inverse circulant à travers ce système (10). Le courant d'eau est ainsi entièrement inversé 'de puits à puits', ce qui permet au facteur d'un premier puits de recette (30) de recevoir les eaux usées géothermiquement provenant du premier puits (14), et au puits de recette (36) de servir ultérieurement d'aquifère, permettant ainsi à l'écoulement de retourner vers ledit premier puits (14).
