Water Treatment

Silicones for use in water treatment

Why are silicones used in Water Treatment?

Water treatment plants create foam which needs to be suppressed to maintain efficiency. Both silicone and non-silicone antifoams can be used to either knock down foam after build up or as an additive to reduce the initial build-up of foam. Product selection depends very much upon the pH value, temperature, water and the concentration or dosing requirement.

ACC antifoams are available either as high percentage concentrated products for pre-dilution or ready to use solutions.

Non-silicone antifoams are particularly useful for use in biological plants where the use of a silicone may interfere with the growth of desirable bacteria.
