Who Are You Going to Call? Foambusters

When your mixing tank develops a thick layer of foam, who are you going to call? To keep foam low during mixing, some systems utilize the Foambuster as a simple yet effective solution to foam buildup.

The patented Foambuster from Vaughan attaches directly to your new or existing Rotamix glass-lined ductile iron nozzles. This stainless steel splash plate is located below the nozzle to deflect the nozzle discharge and create a broad spray of sludge, which wets and breaks up foam forming on the surface of the digester. Digester sludge is pumped through the Foambuster either by the Rotamix chopper pump or by a separate chopper pump. When the Foambuster is used in conjunction with a tank mixing system, only one spray nozzle will be required for effective foam control.

The Foambuster nozzle, mounted above liquid level, may be mounted near the tank periphery and aimed radially inward towards the tank center. Alternatively, the spray nozzle/deflector may be mounted at or near the tank center and aimed radially outward at the tank outer wall. As the tank contents rotate beneath the spray nozzle, any foam present will be suppressed by the evenly dispersed spray pattern from the Foambuster. When used without a Rotamix mixing system, multiple Foambusters may be evenly distributed around the roof or on the walls of the tank to provide surface foam suppression. The size of the spray pattern will be controlled by the velocity of the fluid flow from the nozzle, and one style of spray deflector will be suitable for all flow rates.
