The formation of deposits in liquid-filled systems is a major industrial & social problem. So-called biofilms in particular pose a particular hazard potential. This can lead to a deterioration in water quality or even to a health hazard for consumers due to the release of germs from biofilms. In addition, biofilm formation also leads to very high economic losses in many branches of industry, e.g. due to an increase in
Service life of plants. ISAT has developed an innovative acoustic measuring method for the non-invasive monitoring of layer formation in liquid-filled systems. By means of a sensor which can be retrofitted from outside, the layer formation inside liquid-filled plant components such as pipes, tubes or containers can be monitored online.
