DeFoam 3000 In the Field

DeFoam 3000
in Action!
Product Info

Defoam-Application-GraphicDeFoam 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.

3 reviews for DeFoam 3000

  1. Jakob F (WI)

    De-Foam 3000 is an amazing product. We can add a half gallon a day to keep our foam under control in bad foaming conditions. We personally have seen it drop 7 feet of foam in 15 minutes in our digester. Great product.

  2. Erin S (WI)

    DeFoam 3000 is amazing. We would not get through without it. It immediately takes down our aerobic digester foam by feet, in minutes.

  3. Jacob N. (ID)

    I’ve been using this defoamer for 2.5 years in 1 million gallon continuous stir manure digester and it has been working extremely well and keeping our profits up.
