Sodium hexametaphosphate (SHMP)

White crystalline powder, soluble in water.

Sodium hexametaphosphate is a white crystalline powder with a chemical formula Na6P6O18. It is soluble in water and has a molecular weight of 611.77 g/mol. It forms a clear solution and is commonly used as a sequestrant, dispersant, and water treatment agent in various industries.

Energy Sector

Sodium hexametaphosphate (SHMP) has several applications in the oil and gas industry. It is commonly used as a scale inhibitor to prevent the formation of scale deposits, such as calcium carbonate and barium sulfate, in oil and gas wells and production equipment. SHMP helps maintain the efficiency and productivity of oil and gas operations by reducing scale buildup, which can clog pipelines and equipment. Additionally, SHMP can act as a dispersant to improve the flow of drilling fluids and enhance the suspension of solid particles, aiding in drilling and well completion processes.

Water Treatment

Sodium hexametaphosphate (SHMP) is widely used in water treatment applications. It serves as a sequestrant and dispersant, helping to control the precipitation of metal ions and reducing the formation of scale and deposits in water systems. SHMP is effective in preventing the scaling of pipes, boilers, and heat exchangers. It also aids in the removal of suspended particles and can act as a corrosion inhibitor. Furthermore, SHMP is utilized in the treatment of industrial wastewater and in the formulation of cleaning agents for various water treatment processes.
