Environmental pollution and the problems that can result from it – clean up costs, health risks, negative publicity – are a serious threat. Operators must be vigilant at all times to minimise the risk, and this includes foam pollution. One obvious solution to this issue is the use of antifoam chemicals to prevent foam from leaving the 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 are required. Hycontrol's new SureSense⁺ foam control system achieves this by utilising an adaptive 'proportional' dosing algorithm to ensure only the quantity of antifoam that is needed gets used. This control prevents excess chemical leaking into the environment and also reduces costly antifoam expenditure. Intelligent, reactive foam control is a powerful tool for producers, reducing the potential of environmental damage arising from modern industrial processes.
