Antifoam and de-foam agents are used with cement slurries to prevent excessive foaming problems during mixing which lead to pump cavitation and suction problems, and can cause slurries with erroneous densities to be pumped downhole.
Function: Antifoam agent
Primary purpose: Antifoaming agent to reduce foaming in cement slurry. Foaming can cause serious mixing and pumping issues. Effective anti-foam agent can prevent. Use in concentrations between 0.5 – 2.0% BWOC.
