Foamsol is a water based emulsion of dimethylpolysiloxane designed to control foams produced in kettle and fermenter.
Dimethylpolysiloxane is an inert polymer which is highly effective in foam suppression.
Bubble collapse occurs as a result of reduction of surface tension in the liquid film.
Increased fermenter and kettle capacity
Increased alpha acid utilization
Preservation of foam positive proteins
The optimum treatment rate for Foamsol depends on beer type, vessel dimension, and point of application but is typically in the range 2–10 ml per hectolitre.
The starting point for plant trials should be 4 ml per hectolitre.
