KEM PR-5840 is a product of appropriate Nonionic surfactants in petroleum solvent. KEM PR-5840 is basically a detergent substance that joins little bubbles into big ones. By this procedure big bubbles are less stable, and are releasing their trapped gas easier than small ones.
KEM PR-5840 is suitable for middle to high temperature refinery operations.
SUGGESTED APPLICATIONS As antifoaming agent in absorption/extraction processes, resin, latex, distillations, paint systems and petroleum processing.
Suggested dosage levels
The recommended use levels depend on the specific application but a starting point would be
5-200 ppm’s. The product has shown good performance in high temperature related processes, such as, rendering and defeathering.
KEM PR-5840 is packed in 205 kg (net) PE drums, and 1025 kg (net) PE containers.
Flammable irritating liquid. Gloves & goggles recommended for handling.
Before use review the Material Safety Data Sheet for further information.
The product should be kept from freezing. The KEM PR-5840 should be stored at
temperatures lower than 30°C. When the temperature exceeds 35°C the KEM PR-5840 can split into two layers.
The product will go into solution again when cooled down to 30°C and stirred. This can be done without loss of activity.
