mission in this series of blogs is to provide you an assistance in
tackling issues related to foaming. These can help you to understand conditions:
» When to produce the right foam and/or
» When to avoid foam
But instead of giving you just words or formulae, I’m giving you ideas you can explore on your phone, tablet or laptop via a series of free “apps” that bring the ideas to life.
In this blog, and the next, I want to clear away some of the most common theories related to foam formation. The surfactants added in the formulation help reduce the surface tension of the liquid and hence stabilizing the foam. But, the creation of the foam and the size of the bubbles within that foam are more about complex physics than about surfactant science.
