Foam Detection & Control Systems

SmartFoam Simple Foam Control System

The SmartFoam all-in-one probe and transmitter is installed in tanks and vessels to detect the presence of foam. It’s simple design affords rapid installation at minimal cost. Utilizing Hycontrols patented IMA technology, process build up on the probe, a problem in many applications where foam is present is ignored, ensuring reliable and consistent detection, even in vastly varying conditions.

All SmartFoam units are powered by 24Vdc and have a single volt free contact output for alarm and/or control function signaling when foam reaches the probe tip. Response time is selectable and can be set shorter for rapid response or longer to prevent false positives from in-tank agitator splashing etc.
