We provide chemicals, equipment and water treatment for the following:
Boilers & Heating systems
It is essential to maintain any steam or hot water boiler in a safe and protected state. At the same time as providing excellent protection, GEMchem’s boiler water treatment chemicals are unique in the way they reduce blow-down when compared to traditional sulphite/phosphate water treatment regimes, a property that leads to significant fuel savings. As well as this, our products and solutions improve the heat transfer characteristics, leading to further energy savings. Additionally, existing scale within the boiler is gently loosened, causing it to fall away and thus further increasing the boiler efficiency.
The treatment is also excellent at controlling corrosion in hot water and steam boilers and also throughout the pipework and condensate systems, leading to clean, efficient circuits and extended equipment lifetimes. Pipework and fitting failures are dramatically reduced which, in turn, gives rise to much lower maintenance costs.

Cooling & Process Water circuits
Scale, corrosion and bio-fouling are all detrimental in industrial cooling and process water circuits. Effective heat transfer is very important to efficiency of such systems and GEMchem has an array of products and solutions dedicated to maintaining the integrity and reliability of industrial cooling towers and circuits and keep them working at their optimum.
We offer a comprehensive range of equipment solutions for industrial water treatment:
- Dosing tanks and bunds
- Dosing pumps
- Water meters
- Proportional dosing systems
Water Softeners, Reverse Osmosis units and other pre-treatment packages
GEMchem is able to offer a complete range of industrial pre-treatment systems, such as:
- Simplex and Duplex Ion Exchange softening units
- Reverse Osmosis packages (standard and bespoke)
- De-mineralisation plant
- ‘Pure water’ installations
A wide range of cleaners, anti-scalants and dispersing agents/solutions for the treatment of membranes is available. We also supply suitable biocides which are compatible with membranes.
Cleaning and Disinfection
Growth and deposits in system both inhibit fluid and heat transfer and also have the propensity to lead to ill-health. Systems that have not been used for a while, or that have not been adequately treated, will require cleaning. GEMchem will analyse these systems and put forward treatment solutions specifically designed to optimise their performance, removing scale, corrosion products and biological detritus.
We also offer cleaning and disinfection of new pipework and circuits in industrial and commercial applications in accordance with ACoP L8 and HSG274.
Additionally, Legionella risk assessments are carried out to establish and set in place measures and procedures to control the risks associated with this problem.
