||Foam Tendency Analyser
Foam tendency is a measure of
the ability of a process liquid to create foam given adequate conditions of
aeration or agitation.
|The Foam Tendency Analyser (FTA) is our
pre-emptive approach to foam control. Instead of measuring the foam created our
FTA can predict that foam will occur in advance and take the appropriate action
before any significant build up occurs.
FTA continually samples the process liquid and
creates foam inside a small test chamber. The foam is then measured and action
can be taken as a result.
FTA includes sampling pumps and an antifoam pump
to control the foam. If required the antifoam pump can be replaced by an
intelligent interface to your own process controller.
The Foam Tendency Analyser is
particularly useful where there is no space for a normal sensor or in
inaccessible locations such as underground sewers.
|Applications have included
bearing coolant on turbines where foaming can cause lack of lubrication and
damage, and water features such as fountains where the introduction of foaming
agents such as liquid soap can prove both costly and messy.
