Fatty Alcohol Defoamer

Fatty Alcohol based Defoamer is a versatile oil drilling defoamer capable of effectively removing entrapped air from all types of water based mud under severe field conditions in a wide range of operations. Alcohol based Defoamer is utilized to reduce surface tension in water based drilling fluids as well as solids free work over and completion fluids. Fatty Alcohol based Defoamer is Effective at high temperature and at different pH of water based mud. Fatty Alcohol based Defoamer tolerates high concentration of salts. It is a wide‐application product that reduces the foaming tendencies of water‐base muds. It is compatible with freshwater muds, brackish water muds, seawater muds, saturated salt muds, brine completion systems and all common mud additives. It is easy to mix, works quickly, is effective in low concentrations and is a more persistent defoamer than alternative products.
