Risks Related to Excessive Foaming

Uncontrolled excessive foaming can lead to foam spills onto walkways and grating, creating a slipping hazard. Airborne Foam may be a respiratory health issue and can lead to messy and hazardous foam deposits on nearby structures and equipment, requiring labor and time to clean up. Excessive foaming also may cause pump cavitation when foaming wastewater or process water is pumped throughout piping and tanks. This cavitation may lead to premature pump failure, loss of process control and other related issues. 

By combining precise foam control treatment with automation, SUEZ can help you avoid costly overfeed, underfeed, foam-related process shutdowns, or other pumping problems.
