Wetting Agents

A substance is referred to as a wetting agent if it lowers the surface tension of a liquid and thus allows it to spread more easily.

Viscosifiers are the products that give a drilling fluid these basic rheological properties. These properties may be enhanced with other additives to comprise an engineered fluid solution for each unique drilling situation

Use of Renewable Feedstocks

A raw material or feedstock should be renewable rather than depleting whenever technically and economically practicable.

Turn Key Processing

A type of chemical processing and mixing where we take care of everything needed to complete the process.


A surface active agent. Lowers the surface tension of a liquid, improves wetting of a solid substance in water, lowers the interfacial tension between two liquids thus improving their compatibility to each other and generates or prevents foaming.


In chemistry a stabilizer is a chemical which tends to inhibit the reaction between two or more other chemicals. It can be thought of as the antonym to a catalyst. The term can also refer to a chemical that inhibits separation of suspensions, emulsions, and foams.

Safer Solvents and Auxiliaries

The use of auxiliary substances (e.g. solvents or separation agents) should be made unnecessary whenever possible and innocuous when used.

Reduce Derivatives

Unnecessary derivatization (use of blocking groups, protection/de-protection, and temporary modification of physical/chemical processes) should be minimized or avoided if possible, because such steps require additional reagents and can generate waste.

Real-time Analysis for Pollution Prevention

Analytical methodologies need to be further developed to allow for real-time, in-process monitoring and control, prior to the formation of hazardous substances.

Proximity Warehousing

Our proximity warehouse solution consolidates your supply base, reduces piece part costs & improves on-time delivery. We are product neutral.

Toll Processing

Toll processing is also commonly referred to as contract processing, tolling, toll milling, toll conversion, toll manufacturing, or custom manufacturing. It is a process that can be defined as performing a specific service on the product of a client.


It is better to prevent waste than to treat or clean up waste after it has been created.

Precision Accuracy Via Load Cells On Tank

Most tanks holding 10 kilograms to 1,000 tons or more are mounted on compression load cells or compression weigh modules for weighing. The RockerPin ensures the best accuracy in case of thermal expansion or contraction. Smaller tanks can be mounted on bench or floor scales, which is convenient for legal-for-trade applications.


A polymer is a large molecule, or macromolecule, composed of many repeated subunits. Because of their broad range of properties, both synthetic and natural polymers play an essential and ubiquitous role in everyday life.


A lubricant is a substance introduced to reduce friction between surfaces in mutual contact

Logistics Coordination

Warehousing, Packaging, Shipping.

Less Hazardous Chemical Synthesis

Wherever practical, synthetic methods should be designed to use and generate substances that possess little or no toxicity to people or the environment.

Inherently Safer Chemistry for Safer Prevention

Substances and the form of the substance used in a chemical process should be chosen to minimize the potential for chemical accidents, including releases, explosions and fires.


A chemical additive that increases the formation of foam in industrial process liquids.


Flocculation is the second step in separation process, where impurities in the water are collected to larger flocculated particles with the aid of flocculant. The flocculant in the water treatment is usually a charged polymer with very high molecular weight. In the flocculation the coagulated particles are bound together and even larger flocculated particles are formed with the aid of polymers. The large particles are then separated from the water with suitable separation process like clarification, flotation or filtration. See also “Coagulant.”

Filtration Control Additives

polymer and non-polymer fluids that serve as filtrate control agents to manage filtration rates and reduce filter cake permeability. These effective agents control the four basic mechanisms that affect filtration, including bridging, bonding, deflocculation, and viscosity.

Exothermic and Endothermic reactions

Exothermic – the word describes a process that releases energy in the form of heat. Forming a chemical bond  releases energy and therefore is an exothermic process. Exothermic reactions usually feel hot because it is giving heat to you.

Endothermic – a process or reaction that absorbs energy in the form of heat. Breaking a chemical bond requires energy and therefore is Endothermic. Endothermic reactions usually feel cold because it is taking heat away from you.


When water and oil are mixed together and vigorously shaken, a dispersion of oil droplets in water – and vice versa – is formed. When shaking stops, the phases start to separate. However, when an emulsifier is added to the system, the droplets remain dispersed, and a stable emulsion is obtained.

Designing Safer Chemicals

Chemical products should be designed to effect their desired function while minimizing their toxicity.

Design for Energy Efficiency

Energy requirements of chemical processes should be recognised for their environmental and economic impacts and should be minimized. If possible, synthetic methods should be conducted at ambient temperature and pressure.

Design for Degradation

Chemical products should be designed so that at the end of their function they break down into innocuous degradation products and do not persist in the environment.


A chemical additive that reduces and hinders the formation of foam in industrial process liquids. A defoamer is normally used in industrial processes to increase production speed and reduce other problems. It addresses both problems with surface foam and entrained or entrapped air. The chemicals used as defoamers are typically surface active agents.


the process of separating suspended solids from wastewater by chemical creation of a coagulated, or flocculent masses.

Control Additives

Additives used to control pH are designed to enhance the effectiveness of other additives and to increase the compatibility of the brine fluids and formation fluids.

Clay Stabilizer

A chemical additive used in stimulation treatments to prevent the migration or swelling of clay particles in reaction to water-base fluid. Without adequate protection, some water-base fluids can affect the electrical charge of naturally occurring clay platelets in the formation. Modifying the charge causes the platelets to swell or migrate in the flowing fluid and, once these are dispersed, it is likely that some clay plugging of the formation matrix will occur. Clay stabilizers act to retain the clay platelets in position by controlling the charge and electrolytic characteristics of the treatment fluid.


Catalytic reagents (as selective as possible) are superior to stoichiometric reagents.


a solution selected or prepared to minimize changes in hydrogen ion concentration which would otherwise occur as a result of a chemical reaction..


Biocides are formulations of one or more active substances which can kill or control viruses, bacteria, algae, moulds or yeasts

Base Oils

any substance which contains hydroxyl (OH) groups and furnishes hydroxide ions in solution; a molecular or ionic substance capable of combining with a proton to form a new substance; a substance that provides a pair of electrons for a covalent bond with an acid; a solution with a pH of greater than 7.

Atom Economy

Synthetic methods should be designed to maximize the incorporation of all materials used in the process into the final product.
