Foam is a mass of bubbles formed on the liquid surface or in liquid. It formed when gas is dispersed in a liquid and the dispersion is stabilized. Generally, they show a cellular structure in which cells that contain gas bubbles are surrounded by liquid films. The liquid films surround bubbles, forming large volumes of foams.
The existence of foam causes serious problems in the operation of most industrial processes, the mixing, the filling, transportation and the quality of end products. Typically foam occurs in mixing or blending, reflux and distillation steps, filtration and filling. Not properly controlled and prevented foam ;
Therefore, high-performance antifoams are needed to prevent foam and foam formation. LATRO develops antifoam solutions to many industrial applications using extensive know-how of foam chemistry and antifoam mechanisms.
As it uses the experience of surfactant and silicone chemistry, LATRO can provide many different antifoam solutions for each industrial application considering their different processes features.
