Directions for use
NALFLEET™ Evaporator Defoamer is used in conjunction with NALFLEET™ Vaptreat antiscalant when foaming problems occur in the evaporator. Foaming problems can occur with certain design of evaporators and under certain conditions like elevated sea water temperature. NALFLEET™ Evaporator Defoamer is used to combat such problems and prevent foaming and carry-over. NALFLEET™ Vaptreat is formulated with a defoamer in the product, however under certain conditions additional defoamer is required to maintain maximum operating efficiency of the plant.
The standard dosage is 1% of the descalant dose.
for example, if the daily consumption of NALFLEET™ Vaptreat is 10 L, the recommended dose of NALFLEET™ Evaporator Defoamer is 0.1L. The maximum dosage of defoamer should not exceed 1 PPM based on rated output of the evaporator.
NALFLEET™ Evaporator Defoamer has limited solubility in water. The best dosing method is to mix the product with the antiscalant and water in a dosing tank. The amount of defoamer in the mixture should not exceed 1% of the water added.
