Elkem Silicones provides a variety of antifoams for water and wastewater treatment. Foam can readily form in water in industrial processes and wastewater systems if surface active agents such as surfactants, proteins and cellulose derivatives are present. Our products are designed to manage existing foam and prevent the formation of future foam in tanks, cooling towers, treatment ponds and wastewater systems. Applications include industrial effluents, municipal waste water, and other water-treatment processes. The foaming problems often occur during neutralization of effluents, at aerobic fermentation (CO2 emission), at anaerobic fermentation (CH4 emission) or at the final oxidation step.
