It is a normal phenomenon to produce foam during the fermentation of microorganisms. The generation of foam is conducive to the transfer of oxygen, but a large amount of persistent foam has an adverse effect on the fermentation process. So the only solution to the foam is to add fermentation defoamer agent.
Foam generation in the fermentor
Zilibon Fermentation Defoamer warmly reminds you that due to the increase of foam under aeration and strong stirring, the following three major hazards are caused.
①In the fermentation process, in order to contain more agitated foam, to prevent the overflow of liquid and reduce the loading capacity of the fermentation tank, resulting in a reduction in production efficiency.
②If the loading capacity of the fermentor is not reduced, there is not enough space to accommodate the foam, which leads to the loss of raw materials caused by the overflow of bubbles, resulting in waste and cost increase.
③ Long-lasting unbreakable foam, with the breath of microorganisms filled with carbon dioxide, can not be exchanged with the oxygen in the air, which seriously affects the breath of bacteria.
