DeFoam 3000 In the Field
DeFoam 3000 is a 100% concentrated defoamer, formulated to rapidly deflate foam by creating a monomolecular film. This film spreads across the water surface, quickly collapsing foam. DeFoam 3000 does not contain any emulsifiers, making it safe and effective in biological wastewater processes. It can be used in aerobic or anaerobic processes, wherever foaming is a concern.
DeFoam 3000 is composed of a concentrated blend of essential oils that works to quickly flatten the foam. Its concentration means even a small dose of DeFoam 3000 will take care of large amounts of foaming. For best results, apply directly to the surface of the foam.
Say No to Silica Defoamers!
Industrial defoaming agents are often silica-based and we strongly recommend against them in biological systems. The silica formulas are harmful to bacterial life and interfere with settling. DeFoam 3000 does not contain silica, and works with your wastewater plant’s biology.
