    The antifoaming agent penetrates into the foam system in the form of fine particles. When the foam is to be produced, the antifoam particles present in the system can rapidly destroy the elastic film of the bubbles and suppress the generation of the foam. If the foam has been produced, the added defoamer contacts the foam, i.e., captures the hydrophobic chain end of the foam surface, rapidly spreading, forming a very thin double film layer, further diffusing, layering intrusion, replacing the film wall of the original foam.

    How Defoamers Work?


    The surface tension of the antifoams itself is very low, and the film wall of the bubble film containing the antifoaming agent portion can be gradually thinned. However, the film is strongly pulled by the surrounding surface tension, and the entire bubble generates an imbalance of stress, which causes the bubble to rupture.

    The defoaming agent must be a liquid that is easy to spread on the surface of the solution, and the defoam agent enters the bilayer oriented film of the foam, which destroys the mechanical balance of the oriented film and acts as a foam breaking. The faster the antifoaming agent spreads on the surface of the solution, the thinner the liquid film becomes, the critical thickness is quickly reached, the foam damage is accelerated, and the defoaming effect is enhanced. Defoamers with excellent performance must be compatible with antifoaming agents and antifoam agents. They not only can quickly break the foam, but also prevent foam production for a long time.

    Zilibon is a manufacturer with 16 years of application experience. It has far more defoaming technology than other antifoaming agents in the market. From the above cases, we prove the strength of our Zilibon defoamer. We have a group of excellent defoaming engineers, and An independent laboratory that facilitates defoaming experiments with foam that are difficult for customers to solve.
