DESCRIPTION: Antifoam Silicone Fluids: are 100% Polydimethylsiloxane fluids / PDMS Silicone Oils that range in viscosities from 1,000cSt to 1,000,000cSt (centistokes) @ 25°C. In the Oil and Gas industry, PDMS Silicone Fluids are the most effective fluids in reducing process foam in production, refinery and gas processing plants.
PSF Antifoam Silicone Fluids are characterized by their hydrophobic nature, wide service temperature range, high thermal stability, low viscosity change at temperature, high resistance to oxidation, high flash points, low vapor pressure, stability at high pressures, low toxicity and inertness to most materials.
Antifoam Silicone Fluids are insoluble in crude oil but highly soluble in a wide range of conventional solvents such as toluene, xylene, diesel or naphtha. The suggested starting dilution ratio is 20ppm pre-diluted with one of the named solvents and added continually with a meter pump.
