The SureSense⁺ (SureSense Plus) is an advanced wall-mounted foam controller, which connects to up to three sensors mounted in a single, or multiple, process vessel(s). It allows for the accurate control of aqueous foam by sensing and differentiating between foam and liquid contact. The controller can activate a dosing pump to either keep the foam at a fixed level or to reduce the foam height as required.
Hycontrol’s unique IMA sensing® technology ensures the system will operate correctly even if the attached sensors become severely fouled. The controller is pre-programmed with several useful factory application settings/recipes to aid set-up. It offers both proportional and delay-and-shot algorithms for antifoam dosing when controlling a pump or valve. To discriminate between foam and splashing or other spurious triggers, the controller has an adjustable response time.
Although the controller can be used for stand-alone control, other control actions such as vacuum valves or gas control can be interfaced. Thresholds for both foam and liquid level can be adjusted for very light foams. ATEX barriers for hazardous areas are also available.
SureSense⁺ allows for accurate control of aqueous foam by sensing and differentiating between foam and liquid contact. Utilising one of a selection of control algorithms, the controller can activate a dosing pump to either keep the foam at a fixed level or to reduce the foam height as required.
Remember: Hycontrol foam probes are NOT modified level sensors, and have been custom-designed for this purpose. This distinction is important when one considers the unreliability of traditional level technologies in detecting light, airy foams.
The key benefits of SureSense⁺ in foam applications are:
Clear display with easy menus for simple programming and use
Multiple relay outputs for improved control
Connect up to three foam probes to one controller - reduce costs
Liquid detection capability to provide greater process control
Proportional dosing algorithm reduces unnecessary antifoam use
Record anti-foam use to alert when approaching low level
Directly control pumps or valves, or connect to external controller
Probes pressure resistant to 10 bar, temperature to 150°C
Wide selection of foam probe lengths, connections and materials
Immunity to fouling with unique IMA sensing® = total probe reliability
Note: All customers must ensure compatibility of wetted components with the intended application.
