Antifoams from Van Meeuwen

ANTIFOAM

Foam formation is a well-known problem in biogas production and the food processing, textile and personal care industries. It can even cause production to grind to a halt, so anti-foam additives are essential. This excellent solution prevents and eliminates the build-up of foam, offers long-lasting protection against foam and can be used in very low concentrations. Savings can reach 30%, so you will always save money, while your production process will be visibly improved.

Foam? No thanks!

Sometimes foam is indispensable: in a luxury hot bath for example, or topping a cool glass of beer. But ask any factory plant manager about foam, and the reaction will be a lot different. Whether the process involves food or biogas, foam is a nuisance in production and can even lead to downtime. No wonder so many companies use additives to prevent foaming.

Plastic Recycling

The solution to avoid foam when recycling plastics

Antifoam for plastic recycling

Increasingly more plastics are being produced around the world. For a large part of these plastics, the ultimate goal is to be recycled as effectively and efficiently as possible, particularly in the case of polymers PET, PP, PS, LDPE and HDPE. Not only does the demand for plastics increase every year, but ever stricter regulations and requirements are also being imposed by governments. For businesseconomic reasons, one of the main goals for the recycling business is to efficiently and effectively avoid and keep control of foam. Furthermore, food safety can also be an important issue in the process to avoid and control foam.

Waste Water Treatment

The solution to reduce and control foam in waste water treatment processes

Antifoam for waste water treatment

One of the main goals in waste water treatment in which foam exists is to keep control of that foam in the most efficient and effective way. Too much foam in the production process leads to uncontrolled safety situations, a reduction of production capacity, increased expenses and transport problems. But not only efficiency and effectiveness, also biodegradibility and national waste water regulations can be main issues in reducing and controlling foam. Besides the biogas, waste water treatment and food industry Van Meeuwen’s antifoam agents are used in coatings, detergents, paper, recycling, manure treatment and fermentation and distillation plants.
