Premier Chemicals, the UK-based distributor of dive grade soda lime and other chemicals used in the commercial subsea diving sector, and Life Support Engineering (LSE), the Aberdeen-based supplier and manufacturer of commercial diving equipment and consumables, have announced that LSE will provide storage and distribution services for Premier Chemicals in order to serve commercial subsea companies within Aberdeen.
Intersorb® 408 is a 4-8 mesh (2.5mm-5.0mm) dive grade soda lime manufactured in the UK by Intersurgical, and distributed by Premier Chemicals. Several Aberdeen-based subsea contractors have been evaluating Intersorb for removal of carbon dioxide within the saturation diving systems on-board dive support vessels (DSVs) operating in the North Sea and around the world.
Intersorb 408 has been shown to give improved performance compared with other commercially available soda lime products, and as a result, the use of Intersorb for commercial subsea applications has grown considerably during 2011. The partnership between Premier Chemicals and LSE aims to build on this growth, and to provide outstanding customer service combined with prompt delivery from locally held stocks.
In addition to the Intersorb soda lime products, LSE will hold stocks of Premier Chemicals’ other diving chemicals such as molecular sieve, activated carbon and Purafil select, providing a ‘one stop shop’ for the subsea contractors’ diving chemical requirements.
