The technical services team offers on-site troubleshooting, educational seminars, and in-house sampling at one of our Alberta-based labs. We can also provide simulations through supplier partners like Dow Chemical, who use software and modelling to run in-depth simulations and determine the most effective product option for your operational requirements.
