Georgia The Function and Use of Defoaming Agents for Electroplating Wastewater Treatment(3)





Stability factors of foam
The direct cause of foam is the presence of surfactant, which reduces the surface tension of the solution. Under the combined effect of this reason and the attenuation mechanism of foam, different foam systems show different stability properties, which are mainly related to the following factors: the surface tension of foaming solution, the surface viscosity of foam, the viscosity of solution, the self-healing effect of surface tension (i.e. Gibbs surface elasticity and Marangoni effect) "The surface double layer repulsion and entropy repulsion forces of liquid membranes, the hydrophobic end structure of surfactants, and the steric hindrance effect are not independent factors, and changes in one factor can cause other factors to also change.". The most important factors affecting the stability of foam are the elasticity of the liquid film and the liquid discharge rate. From this perspective, it can be seen that the main factors affecting the stability of foam are different in different foam systems, and sometimes several factors exist at the same time and work together.
In addition to the above factors, some other factors will also affect the stability of foam, such as the size of foam, the coordination of solute and solvent, temperature, pH value, the evaporation rate of solvent, the impact degree of foam and the adsorption rate of surfactant

      Georgia Defoaming agents for electroplating wastewater treatment have low surface tension and are insoluble in foaming media. Adding them to electroplating wastewater will not affect chemical substances such as biological bacteria in the water, and will not change the water quality and its basic system. In addition, high temperature resistance, acid and alkali resistance are also important characteristics. Electroplating wastewater contains alkali and other harsh environmental factors. Defoaming agents for electroplating wastewater treatment can quickly adapt to achieve rapid defoaming and long-term foam inhibition. Excellent water solubility can quickly dissolve with wastewater systems, achieving results.


    Georgia Chemical foam in electroplating wastewater treatment is due to the existence of many surfactants such as detergent and colloidal organic matter in the wastewater, which have strong foaming ability. Therefore, under the conditions of water flow speed, fall, aeration, blowing off, etc., a large number of small and light white brown foam will appear on the surface of the wastewater, which is unstable. There are still some differences between biological foam and chemical foam in appearance, usually showing soil brown or grayish brown. There are many reasons for this kind of foam, such as the soil brown foam caused by the low dissolved gas in the biochemical tank. Grey brown foam produced by low MLSS. Foam caused by microbial factors such as microbial abnormalities. Filamentous bacteria grow abnormally, mix and accumulate with foaming and floc particles to form foam that is difficult to eliminate, etc. The defoamer for electroplating wastewater treatment uses modified silicon polyether and modified oxane as the main raw materials to eliminate foam. It can achieve good results for chemical foam and biological foam that may appear in the electroplating wastewater system.
