Wastewater - whether household sewage, industrial or agricultural effluent, or rainwater runoff – usually contains surface-active chemicals that generate foam. Foam build-up can adversely affect and significantly disrupt wastewater treatment in these facilities.
SILFOAM® solves these problems reliably and permanently. SILFOAM® antifoam agents from WACKER combat and control the formation of foam during the various purification stages of water treatment facilities. Our silicone-based foam control systems can also be used to treat highly alkaline wastewater in the semiconductor sector as well as cooling water or textile-industry effluents. The high efficiency of SILFOAM® antifoam agents enhances process reliability in the plant and so facilitates economical wastewater treatment.
