Foam Control Technical FAQ

On this page, you will find a list of common questions asked about Hycontrol’s foam control systems. We encourage you to refer to the product operation manual in the first instance, but this FAQ may help if that is not immediately available. Please note that elements of Hycontrol's foam systems were originally developed by Charis Technology, and as a result, some users still refer to Charis probes. Charis became part of Hycontrol in 2013, so this is the correct FAQ for these products. If you cannot find your problem or query in this list of questions, please do not hesitate to contact Hycontrol’s Technical Support team by calling 01527 406800 in the UK.

"I would just like to say that the three engineers that carried out the work are a real asset to your business. The project as whole went very well and communication between site and Hycontrol was excellent. Carrying out this kind of installation when the plant is fully operational can cause numerous issues for all, but the conduct and manner [in which] they went about their business was highly commendable."
