neutralizing solution

1. n. [Well Workover and Intervention]
A fluid prepared to counteract the corrosive effect of acids or acidic treatment fluids. Neutralizing solutions generally are used when the components to be protected cannot be adequately flushed or when there is a risk that residual fluids may cause problems through prolonged exposure. Neutralizing solutions are commonly formulated with soda ash to provide an inexpensive, nondamaging alkaline fluid that does not create excessive disposal difficulties.
