The plant is having issue with foam building up in a vertical pipe that carries filtrate from the belt filter press. The filtrate is collected in an above the ground tank. The vertical pipe is partially filled with water all the time since it is discharging the filtrate to the aboveground tank. The foam building up inside the vertical pipe and coming out of the vent. Any idea how this foam can be diverted to nearby sewer or eliminate the foam without use of chemical?
