2880-FCM Foam Control Monitor

Part Number Starting: 2880-FCM

The 2880-FCM provides reliable monitoring of foaming conditions in process applications. The 2880-FCM sensing probe continuously monitors the capacitance of the inserted probe. As the foam intrudes into the normal air or vapour space of the probe, the capacitance changes and a proportional signal output is provided.

It’s unique processor and oscillation frequency combination make the 2880-FCM ideal for foam suppression applications. These include oil/water knock-out and treater trains, bulk separators, coalescing chambers, pre-compressor manifolds, wastewater sumps and ponds.

Over 40 years of capacitance experience stands behind the 2880-FCM transmitter.
