Foam Control... Without Chemicals
We recognize that foam generation in processing facilities needs to be considered as a complete system rather than a series of isolated foaming events. This is true both for dynamic moving foam systems as well as for more confined areas, such as in holding tanks. Thus, we design our solution based on the dynamic relationships among the various parameters that affect the overall foam environment.
ChemFree DeFoam® 4-Step Process
There is no impact on production during the execution of this 4-Step process. The production line continues its normal operation through the entire process, from the initial analysis through the installation of the permanent system.
Step 1 - Analysis
ChemFree DeFoam® experts do an on-site study of the actual foam creation. This includes the observation of the entrained air dynamics, how and where the foam is being generated, the foam flow, the foam growth, and the relationship of the foaming conditions to the facility infrastructure. This study includes a review of your physical infrastructure, operations and procedures, and analysis of the types and quantities of defoamers used.
Step 2 - Design
Based on the analysis described in Step 1, ChemFree DeFoam®, using their patented WDT™ technology as the core, develops a comprehensive custom foam-suppression system that marries best practices and possibly some minor infrastructure modifications designed to meet the specific needs of our customer. This initial design incorporates the selection of ChemFree DeFoam® nozzle types, their location, orientation, and the associated mechanical linkages.
Step 3 - Evaluation System
ChemFree DeFoam® installs a pilot system. The only requirement of the customer is to provide a water connection. ChemFree DeFoam® supplies and installs all of the other hardware, which includes the water transport conduits, nozzles, orientation adapters, and all necessary attachment hardware. The pilot system is then evaluated over a mutually agreed upon trial period.
Step 4 - Installation
After the completion of trial period, the evaluation system is replaced with a custom-fabricated permanent stainless steel foam-suppression system. The result is an optimized system at significant savings using substantially less chemicals, and in some cases, no chemicals at all.
Benefits of the ChemFree DeFoam System
- Reduce or totally eliminate cost of expensive defoaming chemicals

Human Resource Friendly
- Virtually a Maintenance-Free Solution
- NO MORE defoamer delivery systems
- NO MORE maintenance of delivery systems
- NO MORE adjustment of defoamer rates
- NO MORE clean up of slippery foam overflows and residue
- NO MORE tote handling and storage
- NO MORE Supply Chain Management
The price for a ChemFree DeFoam System is based on the extent of the installation and on the chemical defoamer cost savings.
You are used to a world where you order defoamer, stock it, use it and reorder it on a continuous basis. With the Water Diffusion Technology WDT® system, this all goes away. You are no longer buying a product - you are licensing a technology where you pay a fee once a year* - no more ordering, stocking, applying and reordering.
As for the cost - each proposal is based on an on-site analysis of what is needed, but be assured that the savings will be significant.
A chemical free solution at significant cost savings and reduced workload - what's the catch? As we keep saying - Seeing is Believing!
*Fabrication fees in year 1 are in addition to license fee.
We would welcome the opportunity to install a demo of this system for you to touch and feel – just give us a call!
