Our patented FOAMSTOP™ low catalyst impact (LCI) antifoam improves refinery profitability by reducing silicon contamination in coker distillate streams, thereby extending the life of hydrotreater catalysts.
By lowering silicon concentration in coker distillate streams, our antifoam minimizes the cost and frequency of downstream hydrotreater catalyst replacements. Our solution quickly knocks down foam in the drum when the silicone oil is first injected and controls foam buildup during and after a drum switch.
Our FOAMSTOP LCI antifoam is more thermally stable than traditional antifoams and more effective at lower silicone dosages in the coke drum. The decreased silicone requirement reduces the silicon level in coker distillates, resulting in longer catalyst life in downstream hydrotreaters.
This technology is compatible with traditional silicone antifoam products so you can use conventional antifoam control feeding and storage equipment. Existing coker antifoam feeding systems do not have to be flushed and cleaned before using our antifoam.
