At FQE Chemicals, we help our clients improve the efficiency, safety, and financial performance of their assets by creating innovative and unique chemistries that provide superior value and performance. Our clients benefit from reduced equipment downtimes, gain additional revenue from recovered sources, and realize significant savings on maintenance costs. We`re a Company focused on innovation: we specialize in chemistry that solves specific engineering, environmental, safety, workflow, and economic issues at your facility. We approach the creation of our chemistries differently than our competitors. We first discern how problems arise, then reverse engineer those problems in order to reach a result that is both innovative and practical. We create paradigm-shifting chemistries because we have a unique perspective on their creation. Our team has extensive and proven experience in developing award-winning products.
Our custom chemistries have led to many innovations in degassing and decontamination, pipeline cleaning, tank cleaning, bioremediation, and more. FQE™ Pyrophoric, which is designed to control the combustion of iron sulphide deposits, exemplifies this innovation. Current industry practices include destroying iron deposits with hazardous chemicals. These methods are slow, costly, and remove the iron scale that acts as a protective layer, inhibiting further metal corrosion. Our solution is water-based and prevents oxidation by blocking the sulphide reaction sites immediately upon contact and keeping the valuable iron scale intact.
FQE™ Solvent-H functions to dissolve asphaltenes in storage tanks and process equipment. While many products can dissolve the asphaltene, FQE Solvent-H prevents asphaltenes from re-precipitation, eliminating a disposal cost, and the dissolved liquids become a recovered hydrocarbon source that can be reintroduced into the refining process.
FQE Chemicals is physically located in Calgary, Alberta and Deer Park, Texas and distributes its chemistry globally.
Our chemistries offer tremendous value and performance to help with your bottom line. We’ve saved clients over $1,000,000 in disposal costs, recovered over $700,000 in hydrocarbon sources, and reduced equipment downtimes by days, resulting in more production time. Learn about our real world results in our Case Histories, and explore our Featured Contaminants and Featured Contaminants pages to see how you can benefit from our industry-leading chemistries.
We are committed to the health, safety, and environmental impact of our products. Our chemistries are developed to be personnel and environmentally friendly. Furthermore, we continually strive to look at ways to improve the environmental impact of our chemicals.
Meeting Tomorrow’s Challenges
The industrial sector is faced with new challenges every day that require innovation to meet tomorrow’s demands. With our years of experience and deep understanding of chemistry, we respond faster to provide products that our clients have come to expect. Chemistry is not static; it’s a dynamic, evolving field that requires creative thinking and a clear vision to stay ahead. Through our research and development, new products are created to meet these demands and to find even more efficient ways of maximizing our clients’ production.
At FQE Chemicals, we hold health and safety as a core value and we actively care for our employees.
Our vision is a workplace FREE of incidents and injuries, and as a result, health and safety is integrated into every aspect of the work process. This attitude is universal at FQE Chemicals, starting with our President through to the newest member of our team.
Working safely is a requirement of employment with FQE Chemicals, and that means not only complying with legislation, policies, standards, and procedures but exceeding them wherever possible. We strive to prevent incidents through the active education and engagement of our employees. We base our safety culture on our own experiences and the best practices in our industry.
Prevention of accidents is an important responsibility of all personnel. If a condition exists which constitutes a hazard to employees, visitors, or assets and we are not able to correct it ourselves we report it to supervision for attention.
It is the intention of the Company to conduct all phases of it’s operations in the safest possible fashion.We have set as goals:
- To provide our employees with a safe work environment, protecting them to the best of our ability from injury.
- To protect the public and our clients against injury or damage to the best of our ability.
- To protect our assets, vehicles, buildings, equipment, and products against damage or loss.
- To protect our environment against spills or contaminations of chemical spills/releases to the air, ground water and soil.
These principles are paramount to our operational success and every employee is necessary to make our Company a safe place in which to work, and to be a responsible member of the community.
