Kemira’s Fennobio products are readily biodegradable (OECD test criteria), efficient chelating agents for chemical, mechanical and recycled fibers.
Chelating agents and bleaching enhancers
Kemira’s Fennobrite products are a wide range of chelating agents and bleaching enhancers used in chemical, mechanical and deinked pulp bleaching.
Chlorine dioxide is used in modern chemical pulp bleaching and as an efficient disinfectant in industrial and municipal water treatment.
Distilled peracetic acid (dPAA)
Distilled peracetic acid (dPAA) is used as a delignifying and brightening agent in the production of environmentally friendly TCF and ECF pulps.
Fennoflot deinking solutions provide excellent pulp brightness, minimum residual ink values and low speck counts.
Pulp defoamers prevent operational and quality issues like decreased production and final paper quality and increased bleaching chemical usage.
Hydrochloric acid is used for pH adjustment, production of chloride salts, surface treatment of metals and recovery of ion exchangers.
Hydrogen peroxide is used in chemical and mechanical pulp bleaching as well as in other chemical industries.
KemAQ is ultra-high purity micronized aqueous slurry of anthraquinone (AQ) used to benefit the digester and recovery operations in a variety of ways.
KemBorino is an alkaline aqueous solution of sodium borohydride that is used to generate sodium dithionite for the bleaching of mechanical pulp.
Kemira has developed the KemConnect SI control and monitoring system for the operator's peace of mind through enhanced detectability. The system supports your existing facility chemical management program and provides process and quality control through user, date and time tagging. The results are accurate and provide a faster recovery to chemical compliance.
KemDrill mud thinners
Our KemDrill line of mud thinners includes acrylate polymers, copolymers and formulations which effectively work to reduce the viscosity of water-based muds.
Our KemDrill polymers are designed to improve rheology control of water-based drilling fluids. They offer a cost effective solution for mud viscosification.
Kemira offers a variety of best-in-class friction reducers to provide solutions to the common problems experienced by oilfield operators.
We offer a complete line of environmentally responsible and process–friendly defoamers that are highly functional in various oilfield applications.
Kemira has created our unique and flexible line of KemGuard antiscalants for the treatment of barium sulfate, calcium carbonate and calcium sulfate scaling under severe conditions of different oilfield brines, high temperatures and pressures. Our scale control additives are tolerant to water hardness and are designed to function through varied modes of action including threshold control, crystal modification and dispersion.
KemSep flocculants and coagulants are designed for water and wastewater treatment in oil and gas processes. Our polyacrylamide-based flocculants are well recognized in the industry for high quality and performance reliability.
Our KemVert line of primary and secondary emulsifiers is designed to provide highly stable, invert drilling fluids with excellent emulsion stability, preferential oil wetting of solids
by the oil phase, filtration control and temperature stability.
Kemira MaxXtract™ CEOR Solutions
Kemira MaxXtract program has three components: PERFORMA, EXTEND and PRIME. Whether your requirements are for chemical products, chemicals and hydration equipment, or a combination of chemicals, hydration equipment and managed field services to oversee the entire polymer injection operation, Kemira is able to provide a custom-tailored approach that matches your needs.
Kemira NetFloc is a solution for internal water treatment. NetFloc is a chemical kidney ready to be installed in the process.
NetFloc Lite for improved biological breakdown process.
In the pulp and paper industry sodium bisulfite is used as a sulfonation agent in CTMP production and in the production of sodium dithionite.
Sodium chlorate for chlorine dioxide
Sodium chlorate is mainly used for the on-site generation of chlorine dioxide, a key bleaching agent for chemical pulping.
Kemira sodium hydroxide (caustic soda) is used in pulp cooking and it is produced using the environmentally friendly (BAT) membrane technology.
Sulfur dioxide is used for producing bleaching chemicals like chlorine dioxide and sodium dithionite. It is also used in the pulp bleaching process.
In pulp and paper industry sulfuric acid is used in large volumes for chlorine dioxide generation, tall oil splitting and pH-adjustments.
