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 to control foam in a wide variety of applications across many industries. Reliable measurement leads to real cost reductions and in many cases, increased yield and production efficiency. Some users report a reduction of anti-foam agent of at least 75% after implementing reliable foam measurement solutions.
Uncontrolled foam generation is a problem for many industries. In addition to the mess “foam over” or “foam out” events can make in and around plant, uncontrolled foam generation can increase processing costs, reduce productivity, cause damage to rotating equipment and create environmental issues.
The installation of reliable foam detection and control instrumentation in the pharmaceutical, wastewater, O&G and food and beverage industries has been extremely effective in reducing defoamer chemical cost while improving productivity/quality, protecting expensive and critical process equipment and removing environmental pollution risk.
THE HYCONTROL SURESENSE+ PRODUCT LINE ALLOWS FOR UNPARALLELED RELIABILITY IN DETECTING AND CONTROLLING AQUEOUS FOAM.
SureSense+ systems are designed to operate reliably even with heavy coating and buildup on the sensing elements. SureSense+ units work with up to three sensing points in total, either within a single vessel or spread across three separate vessels. SureSense+ systems are used extensively for the detection and control of foam, reducing the consumption of chemical antifoam additives in a wide variety of processes and industries.
Why is Hycontrol SureSense+ different from other foam detection solutions?
In so many cases, liquid level systems are press-ganged into service for foam measurement but as foam is only 1% liquid, they really don’t work very well and when coated with process media, quickly become unreliable. Liquid level probes are not designed for continuous foam measurement applications.
SureSense+ is designed specifically to measure foam and provides the ultimate solution for reliably controlling process-generated foam. Using Hycontrol’s unique IMA sensing technology, SureSense+ ignores probe fouling and build up, continuing to operate even in the presence of heavy process coatings on their active elements.
A SureSense+ probe can have one, two or three individual sensing points. Each control unit can work with up to three sensing points in total, either on the same probe or spread across probes in separate vessels. SureSense+ probes can be mounted either horizontally or vertically, and are pressure resistant to 10 bar, temperature to 150°C.
Each SureSense+ control unit has five relay outputs configurable for a variety of functions including foam detection, dosing control, high level indication and liquid level detection. Its clear display has user friendly menus for ease of programming and use. Each SureSense+ unit is available with a selection of foam probe lengths, mounting/process connections, and materials.
SureSense+ foam detection and control can reduce antifoam chemical use, help protect rotating equipment, improve process quality, and increase productivity through decreased downtime.
