Global Fermentation Defoamer Market: Overview

Fermentation defoamer refers to a non-silicone, non-toxic defoamer, which is specially designed in a way to facilitate fermentation process in distilleries. It is a blend of fatty acid esters and polyalkylene glycols. Fermentation defoamer is water dispersible and finds its usage in natural state by automatic dosing pump or aspersion. It shows impressive performance in the control of foam, and betters the flow.

The product finds extensive application in the pharmaceutical industry during the making of steroids, bacterial vaccines, gene therapy vectors, antibiotics, and therapeutic proteins. Production of antibiotics such as tetracycline and penicillin makes use of industrial fermentation process. Vaccines for various diseases such as cholera, meningitis, and whooping cough are made in industrial fermenters. To reduce the effect of foams in these processes defoamers are used.
