Inhibit scale formation in oil and gas water handling operations

In 2014, OSP acquired Telomer® corporation and with it 45 years of experience in research, development, manufacturing and sales of specialty polymers for use as multi-purpose inhibitors. Telomer scale inhibitor products are manufactured with a strong emphasis on quality, consistency and deliverability to make sure they meet the arduous demands of the oil and gas industry. These advanced polymers prevent scale deposition and improve overall water quality.

Water treatment for energy and industrial applications

Energy Industry

Scale of metal tubulars and pipelines impedes flow and causes damage to equipment resulting in reduced production, downtime and increased costs.

Industrial Water Treatment

Scale can affect any industrial process involving water and cause disruptions to manufacturing activities and costly maintenance repairs.

Proactive applications for successful operations

Scale inhibition can be achieved by interfering with the three main stages of scale development: nucleation, precipitation and adherence. The mode of scale inhibition depends on the product type. For example, polymer-based Telomer products are crystal modifiers that prevent scale crystal growth. Telomer products address a number of specific scale and dispersant issues.

OSP can help you determine which Telomer products are suited to your application
