Water Treatment with Silicone Antifoam
Water treatment plants by their nature create foam which needs to be suppressed to maintain efficiency.
Both Silicone and non-silicone antifoams can be used to either knock down foam after build up or as an additive to reduce the initial build up of foam. Product selection depends very much upon the ph, temperature, water and the concentration or dosing requirement.
ACC antifoams are available either as high percentage concentrated products for pre-dilution or ready use solutions.
Non-silicone antifoams are particularly useful for use in biological plants where the use of a silicone may interfere with the growth of desirable bacteria.
