Elkem Silicones offers leading foam control technology to the pulp and paper mill industry.  Our foam control additives improve drainage in the paper mill.  They also improve drainage in the Kraft pulp stock, sulfite stock, bleaching plant screen room area in the pulp mill.  An antifoam agent reduces paper breaking and hence improves paper machine performance which increases paper mill production.  Antifoams also lessen steam consumption in the dryers and resultant energy savings as well as cost savings.  Today’s fast running paper machines and washers are very sensitive even to small foam-related problems.  Foam causes detrimental operational and quality issues by decreasing production and final paper quality, increasing bleaching chemical usage, and reducing recovery efficiency.

Elkem Silicones offers a variety of products that service pulp and paper mills to solve their foaming issues.  Our silicone compound, fluids, additives and emulsions provide the chemical formulator the means for optimizing antifoam formulations to specific mill processes and requirements.
