- Outstanding reliability and versatility.
- Highly effective, enabling attainment of foam control with minimum addition of non-nutrient additives.
- Available in easy-to-use emulsion form.
Toxicity and Handling
The components of Antifoam FDP have a very low order of toxicity, although prolonged contact with the skin or contact with the eyes may cause some irritation. See our Antifoam Health and Safety sheet for more information.
Storage and Shelf Life
The product should be stored below 32oC and ideally should not be allowed to freeze. The shelf life of the unopened container is 12 months from the date of manufacture. If you wish to use the product after this time please contact us for approval.
Method of Use
Antifoam FDP disperses easily in both hot and cold aqueous systems, requiring only mild agitation to disperse it completely in the foaming system. For maximum efficiency- cy and economy we recommend the antifoam be diluted with water before use, in the ratio of one part of Antifoam FDP to nine parts of cool soft or deionised water, the water is added slowly to the antifoam with continual low shear agitation. The quantity of antifoam required can only be found by experiment. In general, between 100 and 500ppm of the product is all that is required (500ppm = 0.5 liters of product per 1000 liters of foaming media).
Antifoam FDP is recommended for a wide variety of aqueous processes (for non-aqueous applications we normally recommend Antifoam C100F), including the following: Food & food additives processing. Chemical manufacturing & formulations. Water & effluent treatment. Antifoam FDP is effective in many food processing applications where its efficiency and speed of knockdown make it a very versatile foam control agent.
