Cement slurries prepared for oilfield use when mixed on the fly or batch mixed normally will entrain air into the fluid resulting in a froth or foam that can seriously affect the quality of the slurry. The addition of entrained air can change the density of the fluid resulting in volume discrepancies and ultimately a reduction of the strength of the final product. To combat this phenomenon, additives termed “anti-foams have been developed to aid the removal of the air from the slurry.
