Defoamer, also known as anti-foam agent, will produce many harmful foams in the process of industrial production, and it is necessary to add defoamer. It is widely used to remove harmful foam produced in the production process of latex, textile sizing, food fermentation, biomedicine, coating, petrochemical, paper making, industrial cleaning and other industries.
Four characteristics of defoamer:
1. Tension. Defoamer has the property of reducing surface tension
2. Activity. Defoamer can improve the surface activity
3. Inhibition. Defoamer has the effect of inhibiting foam in liquid
4. Eliminate The defoamer has the effect of eliminating foam
It is precisely because of the above four characteristics of defoamer, which determines the scope of application of defoamer, which is very wide.
Defoamer is generally widely used in the following eight areas:
1. Latex, defoamer is widely used to remove latex
2. Sizing, for textile sizing
3. Fermentation, used for food fermentation
4. Medicine, used on the opposite side of biopharmaceutical
5. Paint, used in the production process of paint
6. Petrochemical, used in petrochemical industry
7. Paper, used in the paper industry
8. Cleaning, used in industrial cleaning
