Antifoam Food Grade
Antifoams / Defoamer used in various industries, including applications in the food industry, where the main function is to control the foam arising from the production process. These materials address the problem either with foam on the surface and / or air is trapped (entrained water). Antifoam product that we offer is a mixture of surfactants which have the characteristics of anti-foam material.
Basically, the foam is easier to monitor and relatively easy to handle. However, the surface of the foam can cause problems when measuring the liquid level and tends to cause overflow. This can reduce the speed of a production process and the availability of process equipment. Various kinds of problems that can arise from the frothing is:
Reduction efficiency (cavitation) and the capacity of the pump and storage tank; bacterial growth; flotation dross (waste); reduces the effectiveness of the fluid (the fluid itself); Require extra time to clean tank (slow time in the production process).
Drainage problems particularly in filters and filter Creates technical issues (eg in the paper mill can cause the fibers to form a collection of pieces that inhomogeneous) Allows the rise of material costs as a result of rejection (goods produski rejected) as a result of imperfection end product
Application of Antifoam is on: wood pulp (pulp), paper, paints, industrial wastewater treatment, oil drilling, industrial machine tools, hydraulics, Farming / plantation, Care Automotive, Chemical Processing, Fermentation, Inks, Coatings (coatings), adhesives Personal care (Care), Plastic Recycling, Textile, Water Treatment, etc.
When used as an ingredient in food, antifoaming agents are intended to curb effusion or effervescence in preparation or serving. The agents are included in a variety of foods such as chicken nuggets in the form of polydimethylsiloxane (a type of silicone).
