Exploring Foam Drainage in Fiber-Foam: A Review

  •  Ahmad M. Al-Qararah    


The foam drainage is extremely important in many situations where fiber foams are used. Enhancing wet foam stability requires a complete understanding of the mechanisms and factors affecting wet foam drainage. Investigation of the drainage behavior of fiber foams has been studied in this review. The mechanics behind fiber foam drainage are discussed in detail, along with the influence of surfactant concentration, fiber consistency, and other variables. It also investigated adding additives, such as chemi-thermo-mechanical pulp (CTMP), affects foam drainage. Highlighting the most recent developments in experimental and theoretical methods for describing and forecasting foam drainage behavior are presented. This review acts as a reference to offer useful understanding of the essential factors of foam drainage in fiber foams solution.
