The threat of environmental pollution and the problems that can result from it – clean up costs, health risks, negative publicity and so forth – means that operators must be vigilant at all times to minimise the risk. Foam pollution is no different. One obvious solution to this issue is the use of antifoam chemicals to prevent foam leaving site or appearing in the environment. However, too much antifoam can in itself have negative consequences in the natural environment. Therefore a balance must be struck.
The intelligent solution to this problem is to reactively dose antifoam, using the bare minimum of chemicals that is required. To achieve this, Hycontrol's new SureSense⁺ foam control system utilises an adaptive 'proportional' dosing algorithm to ensure only the quantity of antifoam that is needed gets used. This prevents excess chemical leaking into the environment, and also reduces costly antifoam expenditure. Intelligent, reactive foam control can make a powerful tool for producers to ensure they maintain their commitment to a healthier natural world, reducing the potential damage arising from modern industrial processes.
