Liveo™ Medical Antifoam C Emulsion is a highly effective and versatile silicone defoamer. Depending on foaming medium, this product eliminates foam that has already formed (defoams) and also prevents the formation of foam (antifoams). Liveo™ Medical Antifoam C Emulsion is a water-dilutable emulsion containing 30 percent by weight of Medical Antifoam A Compound (Simethicone USP) and methylcellulose. Liveo™ Medical Antifoam C Emulsion can be used as supplied or diluted with water. Its easy dilution makes this emulsion especially useful as a defoamer for aqueous systems, such as biofermentations.

How to Use

Stir or agitate Liveo™ Medical Antifoam C Emulsion before removing it from the shipping container.

Diluting:

Liveo™ Medical Antifoam C Emulsion disperses easily in most room-temperature aqueous systems. It can be added directly to the foam­producing solutions with enough agitation to disperse thoroughly and completely. In operations above 37°C and in formulations where maximum uniformity is essential, Liveo™ Medical Antifoam C Emulsion should be prediluted with cool water before use. Prediluting the emulsion will also maximize its defoaming efficiency. Dilute the required amount of Liveo™ Medical Antifoam C Emulsion with up to 10 volumes of cool water by adding the water slowly to the defoamer with continuous, low­shear mixing. Continue to agitate the material during use.

Concentration:

In general, concentrations of 1 to 50 ppm are sufficient to suppress foaming in most systems. A concentration within this range is suggested initially. Adjustments in concentration may be desirable to determine the appropriate level to use for any particular process or product.
