Products

SNF Italia specializes in water chemistry.  Our markets are driven by the increasing scarcity of natural resources such as water, oil, gas, and minerals.  Most of our product applications either treat and recycle water, or minimize water consumption.  In addition, we help our customers reduce their energy consumption and therefore their carbon footprint. As a global leader in manufacturing water-soluble polymers, SNF has developed a range of more than 1,000 products that help to preserve natural resources, encourage recycling, and improve industrial process efficiencies.  SNF polymers have several complementary functionalities: flocculation, coagulation, rheology modification, and friction reduction.

APPLICATIONS:

Abatement and control of foams 


SNF’s range of defoamers consists of silicone, non-silicone, and water-based products.  They find application in the treatment of wastewater of any industrial activity and within production processes, especially in the agri-food and pharmaceutical sectors.

In wastewater treatment, light foam is not usually a problem, but a massive presence can seriously complicate the functionality of many plants.

The excess foam can cause the wrong reading of the measurement systems of parameters such as temperature, pH, and level, all this can lead to incorrect management of the dosage and reaction of the reagents, consequently leading to a loss of yield of the treatment.

Furthermore, the presence of foam in the sedimentation tanks causes the mud flakes to be dragged to the surface, thus worsening the quality of the effluent.

The problem can be addressed both by inhibiting the formation and by controlling the presence of foams in the system, depending on the case, antifoams with different specificities will be used.

As far as the agri-food and pharmaceutical sectors are concerned, the formation of foam can instead cause a loss of productivity and quality of the finished product.

The range of defoamers intended for these sectors includes high-quality products, with KOSHER, HALAL, and FDA approval, suitable for the abatement and control of fermentation and food production foams (yeast, starch, etc. )

They are used in the following sectors:

  • TEXTILES

APPLICATIONS:

Increase water reserve available in the substrate

AQUASORB™ superabsorbents are copolymers of anionic acrylamide crosslinked with potassium acrylate making them insoluble in water.

In fact, incorporated into a soil or substrate, they have the ability to absorb large quantities of water and nutrients dissolved in it and unlike most water-retaining products, AQUASORB™ has the property of releasing it easily based on the demand of the apparatus. radical concerned.

AQUASORB™ is able to absorb water up to 400 times its weight, acting as a water reserve in arid climates or where there is a shortage of rain, responding directly to water savings, energy, and maintenance costs.

The range has various particle sizes depending on the final application.

AQUASORB™ is widely used in the following applications:

  • HORTICULTURE
