Defoamer costs vs. process efficiency
Chemistry can only take you so far. And often your purchasing agreement heavily influences how you dose your chemicals, creating a conflict of interest between costs and overall process efficiency. On top of this, many vendors are bundling process control technologies with their chemicals to make initial costs more attractive, but this can lock you into a lengthy relationship that ties your hands even more when it comes to chemistry choice and actual dosing needs.
You know cost pressures only continue to increase, and your procurement team is doing the best they can to ensure profitable operations. But they don’t always see the impact under- or overuse of defoamer can have on your process. Too little and your machines won’t perform as expected. Too much and you’ll see deposits, strength degradation, formation issues, and other defects that impact output quality.
