Low-cost-in-use, proven food-grade antifoams and defoamers
Antifoaming agents safely and effectively reduce problems with foam in all stages of food and beverage production, processing and packaging. Acting as both antifoams and defoamers, they address issues like impact efficiency, overflowing vessels, productivity and cost.
XIAMETER™ silicone foam control agents are available as fluids, compounds and emulsions and powders, and can be used in both aqueous and non-aqueous systems.
DOWSIL™ antifoam emulsion food additives are food-grade, silicone emulsions. They are water dilutable and effective in both hot and cold systems.
NOTE: All Dow foam control agents recommended as direct additives for use in food processing or packaging have been reviewed for compliance with relevant dietary laws and regional regulations.
