Tech Report: At Low Concentration, DEFOAM EXTRA Defoamer Outperforms Conventional Additive on North Slope

High-performance silicone-base defoamer significantly decreases foam and volume of defoamer required, Alaska

At Low Concentration, DEFOAM EXTRA Defoamer Outperforms Conventional Additive on North Slope

Publication Date: 02/02/2017

A customer on the North Slope of Alaska was experiencing foam in its reservoir drill-in fluid. Treatment was possible with conventional defoamers, but product usage was deemed excessive. M-I SWACO proposed using DEFOAM EXTRA high-performance defoamer, a silicone-base defoamer proven to be highly effective at very low concentrations. Laboratory testing confirmed that DEFOAM EXTRA defoamer would outperform the conventional products to both treat and prevent foaming.
