Silicone Defoamer is milky white in color and available in various solid contents. This Silicone Defoamer has been used in various applications such as Cooling Water Treatment, Effluent Treatment, Paper Industry, Fertilizers, Agrochemicals, Paint Industries, Textiles, Detergent, Latex Manufacturing, Cement Processing, Polymerization Reactions, Oil and Natural Gas Production, Glass Cleaner, Coolants and Antifreeze. Prior to use, the Silicone Defoamer should be diluted to any required concentration to accelerate the dispersion in the foaming medium, the preferred method being adding of water to the emulsion and not vice versa. While dilution, excessive shear should be avoided. Silicone Defoamer is more effective in alkaline conditions. Silicone based defoamers are polymers with silicon backbones. Delivery of this Silicone Defoamer may be as oil or a water based emulsion. The silicone compound consists of hydrophobic silica dispersed in silicone oil. To ensure the faster spreading of silicone in the foaming medium, emulsifiers are added. The Silicon Defoamer may also comprise of silicon glycols and other modified silicone fluids. Silicone Defoamers are also suitable in non aqueous foaming systems like crude oil and oil refining. An ISO 9001 certified company, Chemtex Speciality Limited, manufactures finest quality of Silicone Defoamer.
