Foam at the interface may occur when gas bubbles are liberated from the liquid. This foam can be stabilized with the addition of chemicals at the inlet. Many times a more effective solution is to force the foam to pass through a series of inclined parallel plates or tubes as shown in Figure 4-8 so as to aid in coalescence of the foam bubbles.
