BIO-SIL AF720 PWD is a food grade, free flowing powdered antifoam consisting of a silicone based antifoam compound adsorbed onto an inert carrier. Showing excellent antifoaming and defoaming of most aqueous systems. BIO-SIL AF720 PWD is specifically intended for use in powder based food products that require defoaming upon rehydration. Also suitable for controlling foam in a range of biotechnological applications including brewing, fermentations as well as water treatment systems.
BIO-SIL AF720 PWD is effective at low concentrations, is fully soluble in both hot and cold water systems and will not alter microbial growth rates or yields.
Common Areas of Use.
Waste Water Treatment
Instant Beverage/ Food Mixes
BIO-SIL AF720 PWD should be added directly to the foaming system and does not require pre-dilution. When used in powdered products, addition towards the latter stages of processing is recommended.
Suggested started rate for evaluation is 0.01%. For food applications, the maximal limit, as recommended by the FDA would be 0.005% in the final consumed product.
Please note - Tests formulating should still be carried out as system’s ingredients vary in formulations.
Complies with FDA Code of Federal regulations Title 21 Section 173.340 – Secondary direct food additive used as defoaming agents.
• Testing before formulating should still be carried out as systems vary.
• Material Safety Data Sheets are available upon request.
• The shelf life period without testing is 12 months from date of manufacture, if stored in the original unopened container at 4°C to 27°C.
