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.
Kemsurf ESD, Lanspec OF32, Lanspec OF56 and Lanspec OF65 are highly effective foaming agents selection of the correct product combination can forvide foaming in solutions containing 0% to 25% total dissolved solids.
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.
