Akasil® Antifoam FD 30: a food-approved antifoam solution
The strongest in the Akasil® Antifoam FD range, this high-spec, food-grade product has been specifically developed for food processing applications or process waters where special considerations may apply.
In industrial food processing operations, stable water conditions can be crucial. Excess foam can negatively impact productivity, efficiency and effectiveness, as well as jeopardise safety.
The Akasil® range of FD antifoams boast the latest in siloxane-based technology for foam control. This emulsion suppresses foam by occupying openings and causing the foam wall to thin and collapse.
Akasil® Antifoam FD 30 is stable over a wide range of temperatures, dispersing easily in both hot and cold aqueous systems. This product requires only mild agitation for complete dispersal in the foaming media. Akasil® Antifoam FD 30 should be added to lines before use, and we recommend predilution for optimal results — a suggested ratio of Akasil® Antifoam FD 30 with cool, soft or deionised water is 1:4.
We recommend 12 hours of dilution for the best end result. As a rule, between 0.01 and 0.5g/l of antifoam is sufficient. Note that this product isn’t suited for direct use in food production, just related processing operations.
Depending on the strength required, the Akasil® Antifoam FD range also includes products at
