Refinery Units where Antifoam finds its extensive application
- Crude Distillation Unit
- Delayed Coker Unit
- Thermal Cracker Plants
- De-Asphalting Unit
- Water Strippers
- Amine Units
Foaming in these units is a serious issue and its carry over can hinder the entire crude refining process, leading to even unexpected shutdowns. Antifoams comprised up of Polydimethylsiloxanes are thermally stable and are most preferred in foam destabilization in crude refinery units. It works by weakening the froth layer, causing small bubbles to stick together up to an extent of size till it completely gets ruptured.
Key Features and Benefits
- Chemically non-reactive
- Low use concentration
- Optimum foam knock down performance
Proper human safety products such as splash goggles, lab coat, NIOSH approved gloves and boots should be worn while handling and applying chemicals. Splashes on the skin should be washed off with water immediately. In case of splashing into the eyes, flush them with fresh water and obtain medical attention. Should not be injected.
Should be stored in original vented containers, away from heat, direct sunlight and combustibles. Store in a cool and dry place. Please refer label and SDS for details.
