Oil Sands Solutions for Shutdown, Turnaround and Process Cleaning & Degreasing

Efficient and effective chemical solutions for oil sands mining operations.

Every Process Can Be Improved

Your industry is tough on its equipment. Fast, effective chemistry—and a preventative maintenance schedule—make or break the overall efficiency of your operations. In addition, shutdowns and turnarounds need to be completed as quickly as possible, as hours offline add up to significant losses. To keep your operations at peak performance, you need the right solutions.

Industry-Tested & Approved

Your oil sands operations hinge on everything running smoothly. But equipment requires maintenance, and you don’t have time to waste on solutions that require days of downtime or only fix issues in the short term.

We send experts into the field to look at your unique challenges and design programs that bring more efficiency throughout your operations.


Cleaning & Degreasing

The equipment and vehicles needed for oil sands operations get put through a lot. To keep them working safely and efficiently, they need to be cleaned and repaired regularly. We specialize in reducing the overall costs of maintenance and turnarounds for all your equipment and machinery by developing new chemical formulations and more effective field cleaning procedures.
