FOAM CONTROL CASE STUDIES

Hycontrol's advanced foam control technology is used by leading manufacturers around the world.
The following case studies highlight just a handful of the applications of this unique technology:



Tata Chemicals (India): SureSense

Tata wanted to improve the process effectiveness and to achieve cost savings on the use of antifoam. Through their Indian agents Pune Techtrol, Hycontrol supplied Tata Chemicals with the SureSense foam control system. This unique system consists of a special probe built using patented IMA technology along with a control unit to automate the process of antifoam addition.

The probe was installed on the fermenter using an adjustable process fitting. The SureSense detects foam immediately when it forms and makes contact with the probe. Upon detecting this signal, the control unit starts a dosing pump to add antifoam to the fermenter. As soon as the foam subsides and probe no longer detects contact with it, the controller deactivates the antifoam pump.

Cereal Manufacturer: SureSense+

Purpose-designed foam measurement technology from Hycontrol has resulted in cost savings of approximately £30,000 in the effluent plant of one of Europe’s largest cereal manufacturing sites. Managers at the site, which produces thousands of tonnes of breakfast cereal every year for distribution across the continent, are now considering expanding their use of the patented foam technology.

Australian Royal Navy: SmartFoam

The SmartFoam is a unique product, designed to measure and control foam in a single unit which is easy and quick to install. The SmartFoam can be used to create an effective foam control system without the need for any additional transmitter and is designed to be robust for industrial use. The sensor is designed using the unique patented IMA Sensing™ technology which enables foam to be measured reliably even when it is covered with a build-up of sticky material which frequently happens during foam measurement.
