Solid pipe handling
we get the job done

To put our machinery to work on the pipes, we first need to transfer the pipes to the machinery. Our wide range of pipe transport equipment offers every solution in efficient plant arrangement while making optimal use of the available space.

Customers value Selmers because we always think with them. Experience has taught us that each customer has their own preferences when it comes to plant logistics. This demands flexibility. With our range of pipe handling equipment, available in various measurements, we can offer you this flexibility.

  • Compact and clever floorspace utilisation
  • Electrically or hydraulically driven
  • High level of automation
  • Eye on safety

External Area Pipe Handling Equipment

External pipe treatment generally takes place on moving pipes. Usually pipes are moved on a blasting conveyor or coating conveyor. At the inbound section this typically consists of a combination of pipe racks, stoppers, lower-in / kick-out handlers, pipe indexers, hempel racks or rotation units.

  • Wide range of pipe handling equipment
  • Efficient transport methods
  • Many pipe size adjustable settings
  • Operator friendly

Internal Area Pipe Handling Equipment

A characteristic of an internal pipe blasting and coating plant is that pipes are processed individually in separate stations, linked by pipe transfer systems. This is usually done by pipe indexers, pipe buggies, chain conveyors or walking beams.

  • Flexible pipe routing through the plant
  • Integrated safety features
  • Precise pipe positioning in treatment stations

Offshore Pipe Handling Equipment

Selmers supplies full deck handling equipment for S-lay and J-lay-barges. The scope consists of V-type support rollers (fixed, liftable or pivot), firing line rollers, line-up tables and transverse conveyors, but also solutions for more complex pipe handling, such as pipe elevators (single or multi-joint), hoisting equipment, adjustable launch tables for work tools, walking beams, indexers and so on.

  • Full deck handling equipment
  • Complex pipe handling
  • Electrical and hydraulical integration
  • According to specific marine standards and requirements
  • For ‘all’ pipe diameters

Spoolbase, Double & Multi Joint Pipe Handling Equipment

At spoolbases, double joint and multi joint facilities fast efficient pipe transport is important to produce pipe strings. To achieve this, Selmers equipment applies various transport principles in modular sizes like diabolo rollers, line-up modules (LUM), chain conveyors, hempel racks, pipe indexers and walking beams.

  • Diverse equipment range
  • High performance
  • High quality
  • Low maintenance

Pipe coating types

In the world of pipe coating, there are many types of coating materials, all with different characteristics, purposes and methods of application. Discover here which solutions Selmers offers for different coating principles.


It is essential before a coating application takes place, that the surface is properly prepared to optimize the bonding of the coating layers and to improve the lifetime of the pipe(lines).


In general, the coating process includes: heating the pipe, the coating application and curing/cooling of the coated pipes. For each process, we can build equipment suitable for a wide range of pipe diameters and lengths.


Nowadays robotics is an essential component in many modern manufacturing environments. Selmers develops and integrates robotic process solutions, whether it is a tailor-made solution or a Selmers robotic application.


Selmers stands for reliable equipment that can do the job. In all layers of the organisation there is a focus on quality, safety, health and environment to ensure production is optimised and risks are reduced to a minimum.
