Defoamer Selection: How to Avoid Frustration and Delays During Scale-up
The satisfaction that results from identifying a successful defoamer in the lab often comes to a screeching halt when a formula is moved into production. Unfortunately, what works in the lab doesn’t always make a seamless transition into the plant.
What if we told you that simple adjustments to the incorporation conditions could be all that’s required?
Not all defoamers are created equal. Some require high levels of shear to be effective, others work best under low shear conditions. Let’s look closer at defoamer incorporation and find out how to avoid frustration and delays during scale-up. Selecting the right defoamer can be a formulator’s biggest challenge but it doesn’t have to be.
- Identify the factors that affect defoamer effectiveness
- Discover the influence of droplet size
- Transfer defoamers from the bench to the plant with confidence
- Understand how shear and time under shear impact defoamer performance
