Schill + Seilacher is a company which produces process additives and auxiliaries for a wide range of food and non-food industries. The rich wealth of experience includes a product portfolio for the detergent and cleaning agent area.
During end-use application, high active washing detergents can cause massive foam formation which can influence the cleaning application adversely. The challenge is to control the foam generation by using antifoam agents. It is not always recommended to knock down the foam in cleaning applications, so low performing antifoam agents can be an option.
The diagram below shows antifoam agents with different performance levels in water and non-ionic detergent mixture.
