Foam can cause problems across a number of different applications

Foam in wastewater plant discharge can create aesthetic problems for the plant’s neighbors. Foam can cause settling problems in clarifiers increasing carryover and cause problems meeting discharge limits. The actual foam in the discharge can generate complaints to local government officials causing discharge fines and penalties.

Foam from cooling towers can drift into the environment and also create aesthetic problems. Excess foam can cavitate pumps damaging equipment. Foam on equipment can require cleaning, repainting, or repairing of surfaces.

Foam can cause carryover from the boiler causing steam contamination and fluctuation in steam generation. Foaming in evaporators creates operational problems and increased energy demands.

Foam creates poor surface contact in plating or painting. Foam can cause tank and equipment level indicator problems.
