De-foamers / Antifoams

Ezochem's de-foamers are highly effective antifoaming and defoaming agents which spontaneously and continuously removes the foam which occur in internal operations in sugar factories. Ezochem's de-foamers are developed with a view to reduce surface tension at the liquid to air surface and thus eliminate foam. The type and quantity of de-foamer to be used would depend on the quality of foam, pH of the medium etc., and would have to be determined by laboratory trials. As they are non-ionic defoaming agents, they are non-saponifiable, and therefore have an excellent long term effect. Their chemical stability ensures that they do not decompose and remain effective even after long periods in the juice. Thus, when Ezochem's defoamers are added at the extraction stage, the defoaming effect of the product continues through the juice clarification and evaporator station.
