What makes Hycontrol SureSense+ different from other foam detection solutions?
The SureSense+ is the ultimate solution for accurately controlling process-generated foam. With Hycontrol’s unique IMA sensing technology, this SureSense+ has excellent resistance to any fouling or build up on the measuring probe, and will continue to operate reliably with even the largest of deposits on the probe sensing elements.
A SureSense+ probe can have one, two or three individual sensing points, and the control unit can work with up to three sensing points in total, either on the same probe or from probes in up to three separate vessels. SureSense+ probes can be mounted both horizontally or vertically in a tank.
Each SureSense+ unit has five relay outputs configurable for foam detection, dosing control, high level indication and liquid level detection. A 4-20mA output is included to indicate foam quantity. With a variety of control methods built into the advanced foam control electronics, the SureSense+ is used extensively in plant-protection applications and for reducing the amount of chemical antifoam agents consumed.
How do Hycontrol’s SureSense+ systems control foam?
The SureSense+ system is specifically designed for measuring foam presence, depth, and thickness, detecting the foam-liquid interface, and accurately measuring liquid level while ignoring any foam present in real time.
The system’s unique level sensor design can be used for foam control strategies in a wide variety of applications across many industries, providing the benefit of reliability of measurement leading to real reduction of cost and in many cases, increased yield and production efficiency. Some users claim to have reduced anti-foam agent addition by 75% or more after implementation of reliable foam measurement solutions to their control strategy.
Uncontrolled foam generation can affect productivity in a wide range of industries. The introduction of reliable foam measurement instrumentation the pharmaceutical, wastewater, O&G and food and beverage industries has been effective in bringing down costs and providing productivity improvements. Reliable real time monitoring and measurement of foam production ensures controlled quantities of de-foamer chemicals are only added when required, provides for repeatable production process and stops unexpected and expensive foam out events from happening.
Hycontrol’s ‘intelligent multi-action’ technology offers a uniquely reliable and consistent solution to measuring and controlling foam levels
All Hycontrol foam detection systems use patented ‘intelligent multi-action’ (IMA) sensor technology to reliably and consistently measure and control foam level in a wide variety of processes. Product fouling and deposits on a measuring probe are often a fact of life with many foaming applications, and can have a serious impact on foam measurement attempts.
High sensitivity is required to detect light foam products, but many level instruments used for foam detection are unable to reliably differentiate between product coating and a foam layer rising in a tank. Such instruments can create a whole series of false positives, resulting in the overuse of costly antifoam chemicals. Alternatively, they may be unable to see the foam on the sensor and cause many problems in plant overheads as foam is carried over into other parts of the plant.
This is where Hycontrol’s IMA technology leaps ahead of all other detecting techniques, as it operates efficiently and repeatably even when the probe becomes heavily fouled with residual product.
The Hycontrol SureSense+ product line allows for unparalleled accuracy in detecting aqueous foam.
SureSense+ systems are designed to be resistant fouling and buildup, and operate reliably with even the largest product deposits on sensing elements. SureSense+ units can work with up to three sensing points in total, either within a single vessel or from probes in up to three separate vessels, and are used extensively for controlling and ultimately reducing the consumption of chemical antifoam agents across a wide variety of processes and industries.
