Foam Breakers


Our proprietary-designed double-pocket foam breakers have proven extremely effective at breaking down foam within a vessel. When installed in a production separator they improve liquid-gas separation with or without the use of anti-foam chemicals. In one retrofit application, VME's foam breakers were so effective that the downstream mist eliminators were completely removed without compromising unit performance.

Our Foam Breaker Packs are engineered to break foam by thinning the liquid film around gas bubbles. As foam enters, larger bubbles break immediately. Smaller bubbles are forced through a tight area which stretches each bubble, causing more to break.  Any remaining gas bubbles rupture as they flow into a wide channel where they are forced to expand rapidly.
