In agrochemical formulations, different surfactant types are used to get specific and desired functions such as wetting, emulsification, dispersing, etc. Many of these surfactants tend to the formation and stabilize the foam.

Foaming can occur while manufacturing or packaging, but the most important problem is that occurring foam during field applications. Also, the presence of foaming can give a bad image of the process is operated in the eyes of a customer.

In order to find the ideal solution to these problems, it is necessary to know the causes of foaming, parameters of foaming systems, and anti-foam mechanism very well.

Our MAXANT Antifoams provides long-durable foam control, allowing formulators to improve productivity and providing farmers more time to spray and less difficulty from foam.

To obtain the best antifoam for your process, consider the following questions:

  • Is the system aqueous or nonaqueous?
  • If the system is aqueous, what is the pH?
  • What is the temperature of the foaming system?
  • Is there agitation? If so, what type?
  • What is the volume or batch size of the foaming material?
  • What defoamer are you using now?

In summary, describe your process and explain where it foams. And do not forget while the proper product for the formulation is very important.
