Industrial Antifoams and Defoamers
Stop foam in its tracks
From start to finish, foam control is extremely important in the production and refining of oil and gas. From the wellhead to refining and the shipment of the finished product, it is essential to reduce or eliminate foam in your oil and gas operations. Uncontrolled foam disrupts refinery and production processes, leading to inefficiency and increased operational costs. Antifoams and defoamers can help increase productivity and capacity and reduce production costs.
Dow antifoam and defoamer emulsions, fluids and compounds can be used in oil and gas production operations, including:
- Gas-oil separation
- Drilling mud
- Gas dehydration
- Gas scrubbing
Our solutions can also be applied in traditionally high-foam applications, such as vacuum distillation and crude distillation. Antifoams and defoamers can also be used in:
- Cracking processes
- Asphalt processing
- Delayed cokers
- Storage tank froth-overs
- BTX extraction
Silicone antifoams from Dow are available in emulsion, fluid, and powder forms, and they are long-lasting and stable over a wide range of temperatures. Designed for aqueous and non-aqueous systems, our antifoams and defoamers are suitable for high-powered industrial applications. Plus, they are equipped to meet stringent regulatory compliance standards set by government agencies.
