In water and wastewater treatment applications, pre-processed fluids contain bacteria, chemicals, and other compounds hazardous to human health. The formation and collection of foam in processing equipment allow these compounds to build up, which can lead to health and safety issues for employees, decreased operational efficiency and even overflow into surrounding areas. For these reasons, industry professionals often employ defoamers and anti-foaming agents during processing operations to minimize foam production and accumulation.

At Crucible Chemical Company, we offer a wide range of defoamers for wastewater treatment and water treatment systems. Our products include non-silicone defoamers, silicone emulsion defoamers, organic defoamers, and organo-silicone concentrates. We also provide custom formulation capabilities for highly complex or unique water treatment systems. We’re available for on-site trials and demonstrations of our foam control and prevention solutions to help customers identify the right foam control solution for their application.
