Silcolapse™ for Water Treatment, you will produce cleaner and safer water

Silicone Antifoams for Water Treatment

Technological development and environmental awareness have driven many industrial, consumer and institutional product manufacturers to reduce water usage and packaging. 

Civic and industrial companies, environmental service companies and wastewater treatment plants all use processes that create foam. 

Most of the time waste water contains surface-active chemicals that generate foam. Foam issues can affect waste water process with loss of quality, reliability and productivity.

Far more powerful than organic products, Silcolapse™ foam Control agents allow to manage and regulate foam during the water treatment processes. They are safe to handle, easily dosed and readily dispersible, thus contributing to better water quality.

Our full line of Silcolapse™ foam Control processing aids make manufacturing more efficient and cleaner, improve the quality of final products, reduce waste and energy consumption and facilitate recycling. They are safe for people and equipment and comply with the strictest standards.

Other benefits you will get from our range of foam control agents are durability at all stages of the cleaning process, high efficiency at very low dosage, enhanced process reliability for water treatment plants. 

Silcolapse™ antifoams are specially designed to minimize their impact on the environment and present a low chemical oxygen demand.

To support the quality of our products, our local teams in Europe, Asia, North and South Americas offer you comprehensive services worldwide to ensure that you achieve the best results in the most efficient way possible:

  • Laboratory trials using standard or customer-specific media 
  • In situ trials with the support of our technical experts
  • Support for industrial scale-ups with longer-term monitoring and testing to optimize dosage
