We believe that technology, industry, and conservation can – and should – work together to sustain our people and our planet. Each of our chemical solutions embodies that ethos. We harness innovative ideas and new technologies with tried and tested methodologies. The end result? You maintain safe, clean and productive equipment and infrastructure, while protecting personnel and preserving the environment. Conserving health and wealth.
With experience across the oil and gas, agriculture, marine and manufacturing sectors, there is not a lot our team doesn’t know about asset maintenance and protection.
So whatever industry you’re in, and whichever challenges you encounter, we have a tailored solution to solve it. Safely. Efficiently, Sustainably.
SEM’s plant-based solutions improve properties and functions of our formulations whilst being environmentally friendly and sustainable.
Key benefits of using products from our green chemical range include:
At best corrosion reduces efficiency, as many processes require virgin metal surfaces to operate effectively. At worst, it can lead to catastrophic failures, risking infrastructure, and more importantly, lives.
Our flagship rust removal technology – SDR – leads the charge on this one. A product which evolved from the realms of chemistry and engineering, SDR is suitable for use on all grades of steel. The pH neutral technology is flexible, water based and non-toxic.
The full range encompasses chemical solutions tailored for a range of corrosion treatments. As you would expect, each is adaptable across a range of applications, safe and efficient. What’s more, corrosion inhibition protects assets for the longer term.
In the oil and gas industry, severe cases of wax deposits can completely block pipelines, downhole tubulars and process facilities, costing the industry millions of pounds in downtime alone. Conventional preventative solutions often don’t solve the problem.
Whether you need a heavy-duty degreasing solvent to eradicate stubborn hydrocarbon deposits and blockages, or a water-based product to remove mud and oily deposits, we have a product to match. Each combines high efficacy and safety, with low volatility and non-flammability.
Benzene has long been recognised as a carcinogen, with recent concerns centring on the effects of continuous exposure to low concentrations of benzene both occupationally and environmentally. It’s also highly volatile.
SEM VapourFree has been designed for tank and vessel cleaning where LEL and benzene levels prevent safe entry by personnel. The solution acts quickly to control and lower benzene and LEL levels as well as cleaning in the same process.
Uniquely, the solution works using a cold application method. This offers huge commercial, environmental and operational benefits, reducing both man-hours and carbon emissions.
Corrosion is the number one cause of sprinkler system failure. It can also cause pinhole leaks, leading to loss of production, shutdown, and in a worst-case scenario, personal injury or fatalities.
Deluge System CP is a corrosion inhibitor especially designed for use in offshore deluge systems where traditional film-forming inhibitors cannot be used. The active ingredients in Deluge System CP have long been used in food and medical applications, making it safe for use where exposure is likely.
Deposits of scale-forming salt build up on equipment surfaces in many industrial systems. In a worst case scenario, it can result in the complete shutdown of operations.
ScaleSolv and Barsol NS have been tailored to eliminate either calcium carbonate scale deposits, or more stubborn, acid resistant barium scales. Our products are well suited to the offshore oil and gas industry. With their proven ability to penetrate and eradicate the build-up of scale deposits, they help you to maintain your assets and optimise production.
Our degreasing products are designed for use across a multitude of industrial situations. From cleaning process machinery and storage tanks, to topside equipment and lock block, each solution in our range is safe and fully biodegradable.
Occurrence of grease over time is a natural part of the process. But so is cleaning and maintenance. Not only can this can help to ensure a safe and healthy working environment but also to help with efficiency.
SEM Eco-Clean, E-Deck and Eco-wash are powerful environmentally friendly degreasers suitable for use in many industrial situations, especially where there is concern for the environmental impact of the chemicals being used.
