FennoTech™ defoamers and de-aerators for modern pulp and paper processes
Modern paper machines are very sensitive to foam generation. Closed water systems and the use of new additives increases the foaming potential in pulp and papermaking systems.
Foaming can decrease production and operational efficiency and reduce pulp and final paper quality and e.g. increase bleaching chemical usage. It can even lead to environmental claims and cause safety hazards due to slips and falls at the mill.
Kemira’s harmonized portfolio of FennoTech antifoaming agents includes dedicated defoamers and de-aerators to meet the needs of all pulp and paper applications.
