PULPSIL® 276 C
PULPSIL® 276 C is a highly viscous, relatively alkaline resistant, highly efficient, solvent and water-free silicone antifoam compound, especially developed for use in pulp mills.
PULPSIL® 276 C is characterised by:
- very good handling
- excellent good long-term efficiency
- excellent knock-down efficiency
For high efficiency it is necessary that PULPSIL® 276 C be well dispersed in the foaming medium. Therefore PULPSIL® 276 C can be added only in neat form if high amounts of surfactants and/or high shear forces ensure a good dispersion.
Preferably PULPSIL® 276 C should be added in emulsion form. The use as a booster to organic defoamers is also possible, but sufficient compatibility of PULPSIL® 276 C with the organic system has to be guaranteed.
When used in suitable formulation like emulsion, PULPSIL® 276 C is an excellent antifoam agent, recommended for the use in the different pulp processing steps like washing, screening, bleaching and waste water treatment.
