dvr Defoamer

DEFOAMER is a stable white emulsion formulated to quickly eliminate foam in recovery tanks of hot and cold water soil extractors, automatic shampooing equipment, and floor scrubbers.


Excessive foam greatly inhibits efficient recovery and continuous equipment use. As a consequence, it is important that a defoaming product work rapidly. After extensive analysis and testing of various raw materials, a silicone component was chosen as the primary ingredient for DEFOAMER due to its ability to quickly attack the surface tension of foam. As a result, rapid and total elimination of excessive foam is achieved within seconds of exposure to DEFOAMER.

Utilizing the Modified Bikerman Foam Control Test, DEFOAMER was tested against 18 competitive defoaming products currently being marketed. In every instance, DEFOAMER exhibited far superior foam knockdown and elimination.

Unlike the vast majority of available defoaming products, DEFOAMER is a stable emulsion and will not separate. The product will withstand 3 freeze/thaw cycles without adverse effects to the defoaming efficiency.

Using Procedure:

DEFOAMER is non-corrosive and will not harm equipment. Formulated with environmental needs in mind, DEFOAMER is phosphate free.
