Defoamer

APT defoamers consistently out perform inferior quality non-silicone based products. They work quickly because powerful hydrophilic chemicals disperse the antifoam emulsion rapidly throughout the solution.

APT develop cost effective antifoam compounds that can help solve the everyday problems of engineering companies and manufacturers, saving them time and money.

 

What can I use as a defoamer?

Throughout our 30 years in the chemical industry, APT have worked with engineering and manufacturing companies across the UK and Europe to develop the most effective antifoaming agents, our Antifoam Fast Brake is one of the most frequent used due to its superior formulation.

APT defoamers are silicone based. These consistently out perform inferior quality non-silicone products because they are fast acting, powerful hydrophilic chemicals disperse the antifoam emulsion rapidly throughout the solution.

Silicones have very low surface tension and since it is surface tension that creates and maintain a foam, the bubbles collapse. Your foam problem disappears and productivity can resume at normal speed.

 

How to select the right antifoaming agent?

You need to consider many factors such as temperature and the material that is foaming for example, a fluid is needed for non-aqueous cooling or degreasing solutions whilst a silicone based emulsion defoamer is better for aqueous systems.

Time and money that is wasted because foam in coolants and processing liquids can cause various kinds of problems:

  • Overflowing vessels
  • Reduction of pump efficiency
  • Bacterial growth
  • Dirt flotation
  • Reduced effectiveness of the degreaser or coolant
  • Downtime to clean tanks
  • Incomplete drainage
  • Material rejection due to manufacturing or processing imperfections
