Foamers / Defoamers
The addition of foaming surfactants to de-liquefy gas wells can result in excessive liquid carryover and reduce separation of solids and oil from water. These reactions can cause issues like:
- Reduced capacity of pumps and storage tanks
- Diminished pump efficiency
- Drainage problems in sieves and filters
- Lessened efficiency in high-pressure separators
While the terms “antifoam” and “defoamer” are often used interchangeably, an antifoam is typically added to prevent foaming, while a defoamer is used to eliminate existing foaming conditions. Our technologically advanced antifoams and defoamers effectively eliminate foaming problems across a broad spectrum of oil and gas industry applications including gas scrubbing, gas-oil separation, drilling muds and asphalt processing.
