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. The following is a selection of the products that find application as foaming agents in oilfield applications:
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.
