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 […]

How to create ‘new gold’ from operating nearshore spoolbases

Selmers has been taking care of the development, engineering, manufacturing, installation and optimization of spoolbases for the handling of pipes for many years. This has already resulted in many optimisations and customer-specific solutions. We have translated a large part of these improvements and pieces of custom work into standard modular spoolbase equipment and process lines. […]

Selmers got Energized!

Selmers employees took part in the Energize Event of the MeeMaken group of companies on 7 July. A 1/8th of a triathlon, biking, hiking, sup boarding, kayaking and even being their supporter were all sponsored by MeeMaken. The amount of energy donated by employees resulted in the actual money donated. By ‘donating our energy’ yesterday […]

Robotic De-Icing Plant

Due to outdoor storage during the winter pipes get covered with compact snow and ice which needs to be removed prior to load-out. Our solution ensures that the exterior of the pipes will be sufficiently clean of ice. Advantages: Safe and employee friendly No damage to high quality coatings High speed   The Full Scope: […]

Phosphoric Acid Wash System

In order to obtain an as clean as possible pipe surface, pipes may be additionally “cleaned” after blasting. In the phosphoric acid wash cleaning process a carefully premixed acid solution is sprayed on the pipe with the goal to remove possible contaminations such as salts (chlorides and sulphates), light oxidation, oil traces, surface dust and/or […]

Internal Blasting System

In the internal mechanical blasting process the pipe surface is blast cleaned with dry-grit using a blast boom system. A highly concentrated stream of steel abrasive particles are projected at the surface. The goal is to remove rust, mill scale and contaminations in order to create the correct cleanness and surface roughness profile, beneficial for coating adhesion. […]
