Pulp & Paper

Silicone antifoams and defoamers are highly active and very effective agents used to prevent or suppress foams in many chemical processes without contaminating or altering the product.

We take the time to understand the unique operating conditions of your system to identify the root causes of foam and the impact that it has on the performance, quality, and environmental aspects of your operation. Latro offers a range of pulp antifoams providing excellent foam knockdown.

Our silicone defoamer package consists of

1) Silicone resin-based compounds: foam knockdown& persistence

2) Silicone-based surfactants: de-aeration

3) Silicone-based emulsifiers: emulsion stability &dispersibility

They are active at very low use levels and show excellent performance in all types of surfactants (nonionic, cationic, and anionic) as well as high and low temperatures and various pH-conditions.

The advantage of silicone deaerators in pulp & paper industry;

  • Improves drainage in the paper mill
  • Reduces paper breaking and hence improves paper machine runnability, in turn, increases paper mill production.
  • Lesser steam consumption in the dryers and resultant energy savings as well as cost savings
  • Avoids formation of holes during paper formation by removing fine bubbles in fibers
