We stay where others go home…

Mechanical engineers using plant management system

We stay where others go home… Engineers used to deliver a complete blasting and coating plant with equipment, and then depart. However, this is no longer the best solution for your operations. We’re not suggesting it’s akin to that acquaintance who overstays their welcome on your couch… But consider it a helpful digital hologram of […]

Robots are taking over the (pipe) world

Robots are taking over the (pipe) world When robots were first portrayed in movies such as War of the Worlds and Star Wars, they evoked a primal fear that someday machines and robots would take over the world. However, now that robots are actually here, it appears that we fear not being overpowered, but rather […]

Not sugar coating it; the best plant managers’ recipe

Selmers fully automated blasting conveyor for pipes with adjustable setting.

Not sugar coating it; the best plant managers’ recipe   Deviating from a standard recipe; who doesn’t? You like to tweak the dish to your particular preferences. You probably do the same with your operations’ handling equipment. But as with the perfect frosting, it is with the perfect pipe coating… Experience, good ingredients and balance […]

Solving a bouncing problem with determination and grit

abrasive acceleration belt for internal blasting of pipes and tubes.

Solving a bouncing problem with determination and grit   New paint requires a clean surface. The bigger the surface, the better the adhesion of the applied coating. For this purpose, blasting abrasion of pipes is done with grit. The grit is applied with force, and therefore naturally produces some excess grit. One of our clients […]

Longer lifespan, less downtime because of ‘magic touch’ 

Pipes inspected by working man in factory setting

‘Magic touch’ for longer lifespan and less downtime  Decades of experience is not something that can be acquired by training, or that can be replaced by equipment. It’s like a person recognising a type of car just by hearing its engine. Or a baker no longer needing his recipes when adding ingredients. Our technical inspectors […]

Offshore ‘Predator’ has eyes on other industries

offshore robot designed for extreme conditions

Offshore ‘Predator’ has eyes on other industries Ever seen a robot on a seagoing vessel? Robots are made of steel which is in essence not best friends with salt and water. Harsh conditions are one of the few certainties at sea. Therefore, most manufacturers of robots take a restraint approach to creating automated solutions for […]

A successful intruder in the world of extruders

Selmers has been supplying equipment for pipe blasting and coating for decades. For the application of an extra layer, or film, to protect this anti-corrosion coating electrically and mechanically, external extruders were used until the mid-1990s. However, those were not sufficiently suitable for our customers’ applications. So what do you do? You develop your own […]

Reaching higher pipe treatment volumes thanks to liquid PU spray

Designing, engineering and delivering equipment for pipe blasting and coating has been one of our specialties for years. Large, small, thick and thin: we have seen it all. Even pipes for water transport no longer hold any secrets for us. At least, that is what we thought. Until some customers came with very specific requirements […]
