BIO-SIL AFD/1000F is a food grade 10% active organic oil based antifoam emulsion, ideal for antifoaming and de-foaming a wide range of aqueous systems. Best suited for use in food processing applications or as a processing aid in fermentation systems. BIO-SIL AFD/1000F is effective at low concentrations when added to systems where foam control is critical and has the added benefit of being silicone free. In fermentation systems, BIO-SIL AFD/1000F has no negative effect on growth levels of micro-organisms at working concentrations.
Common Areas of Use.
General Food Processing
Water Based Systems
Fruit and Vegetable Processing
As a processing aid: For maximum de-foaming efficiency, pre-dilute BIO-SIL AFD/1000F with 3 to 5 parts of water momentarily before adding to the foaming system. For effective dilution, do not add the BIO-SIL AFD/1000F to the water but rather vice versa. In processing applications as an aid, BIO-SIL AFD/1000F in concentrations of 10 to 500 ppm can be added.
For end use: BIO-SIL AFD/1000F emulsions can be added directly from the original shipped container to the foaming system. Concentrations in the range of 0.1 to 0.5% have been determined as a good starting amount for fermentation applications. If required, BIO-SIL AFD/1000F can be heat sterilized before use either in its pure form or pre-diluted in water, or can be sterilized directly in the fermentation medium.
BIO-SIL AFD/1000F is produced under ISO 9001, FSSC22000, ISO 14001and ISO 45000 management systems.
- 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. The product will separate after heat sterilization but can be easily reconstituted by agitation before use. Pre-dilution with water will minimize this effect.
