Additive 5118 P & P: What you should know about them

It is actually a highly active and efficacious defoamer. The non-silicone defoamer is based on mineral oil and hydrophobic surfactant. This particular defoamer is known to knock down foam very fast – specifically if you are using them in high temperature applications. Do remember that this product is not really meant to burst the foam but to control the re-generation of the same. It is free of APEO.

This defoamer can be used directly in a line feeding the washer showers, suitable for the first or second stage showers. If you are adding it to the second stage showers, then a major part of the defoamer will be carried by the second stage filtrate to the first stage showers to restrain the foaming of the hot – more or less concentrated black liquor in the first stage washer. The rest of the defoamer will be carried with the pulp for eventual washing and screening and it will remain effective to obstruct the formation of excessive foam later.
