What are Anti-foaming agents?
Anti-foaming agents, also known as defoamers, are chemical additives used specifically to prevent or eliminate froth formation. These are used in various industrial processes and can be water-based, oil-based, silicone-based, and other types. Anti-foaming agents remove foams or prevent their formation by sticking to the froth bubbles, destabilizing and bursting them.
The anti-foaming agents find wide applications in industries such as pulp & paper, oil & gas, water treatment plants, paint & coating, pharmaceutical, food & beverage, textiles, and detergents & cleansing agents manufacturing. The use of these agents improves process control, yield, energy efficiency, and cost-effectiveness of the overall process by enhancing the equipment capacity and reducing completion time and production loss.
A defoamer or an anti-foaming agent is a chemical additive that reduces and hinders the formation of foam in industrial process liquids. The terms anti-foam agent and defoamer are often used interchangeably. Strictly speaking, defoamers eliminate existing foam and anti-foamers prevent the formation of further foam. Commonly used agents are insoluble oils, polydimethylsiloxanes, and other silicones, certain alcohols, stearates, and glycols. The additive is used to prevent the formation of foam or is added to break a foam already formed.
