Foambuster

Foambuster

The patented Foambuster uses the same glass-lined ductile iron nozzles as Rotamix but also uses a stainless steel splashplate located below the nozzle to deflect the nozzle discharge and create a broad spray of sludge, which wets and breaks up foam forming on the surface of the digester. Digester sludge is pumped through the Foambuster either by the Rotamix Chopper Pump or by a separate Chopper Pump. When the Foambuster is used in conjunction with a tank mixing system, which produces a rotational mixing pattern in the tank, only one spray nozzle will be required for effective foam control.
