BIO-SIL YFA/1000 is a 100% active vegetable oil based antifoam concentrate, specifically formulated for antifoaming and de-foaming a wide range of aqueous system. Particularly suited for use in yeast or other microbial fermentation systems, YFA/1000 is fully autoclavable and shows no negative effect on microbial growth levels. BIO-SIL YFA/1000 is effective at low concentrations and has the added benefit of being silicone free.
Common Areas of Use.
Waste Water Treatment
Water Based Systems
As a processing aid: For maximum de-foaming efficiency, pre-dilute BIO-SIL YFA/1000 with 3 to 5 parts of water or media momentarily before adding to the foaming system to facilitate rapid distribution into the system.
For end use: BIO-SIL YFA/1000 can be added directly from the original shipped container to the foaming system. Concentrations in the range of 0.05 to 0.1% have been determined as a good starting amount for most applications. If required, BIO-SIL AFD2000F 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 YFA/1000 is certified Halaal. Produced under ISO 9001 and FSSC22000 management systems.
Complies with FDA Code of Federal regulations Title 21 Section 173.340 – Secondary direct food additive used as defoaming agents for the processing of beet sugar and yeast.
- 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.
