Foaming Agent Boosters

Foaming is an important characteristic for a range of oilfield processes, with the need for effective foam stability over a wide range of temperatures and water compositions. Foaming agent selection is critical to ensure stable foam formation in solutions containing a high level of electrolyte including divalent metals, acid and basic solutions and over a broad range of temperatures.

The agents offered by Lankem can be used to provide high-quality foams for a wide range of water compositions and at a wide range of temperatures. These products are based on alkanolamides, ether sulfates, amidopropyl betaines and alkyl betaines.

  • Amphokem CAPB is a highly effective foaming agent that can be used alone in applications such as dewatering gas wells or as a foam boaster in combination with alkyl ether sulfates.

  • Kemsurf OS38 is a highly effective foaming agent particularly suited to applications where high stability to temperature and variation in pH is required.
