The threat of environmental pollution and the problems it entails – clean up costs, health risks, negative publicity and so forth – means that operators must be vigilant at all times to minimise the risk. One solution to this issue is the use of antifoam chemicals to prevent foam leaving site. However, too much antifoam can also have negative consequences if it reaches the environment.
The solution to this problem is to reactively dose antifoam, using the bare minimum of chemical required. To achieve this, Hycontrol's new SureSense+ system utilises an adaptive 'proportional' dosing algorithm to ensure only the antifoam that is needed gets used. This prevents excess chemical leaking into the environment, and reduces costly antifoam expenditure.
