Today’s fast running paper machines and washers are very sensitive even to small foam-related problems. The closure of water systems and the use of new additives enhance the foam generating potential in pulp and papermaking systems. Foam causes detrimental operational and quality issues by decreasing production and final paper quality, increasing bleaching chemical usage, and reducing recovery efficiency. It also can cause environmental claims and safety concerns from slips and falls.
