SONOCHECK ABD06 Bubble Detector
The SONOCHECK ABD06 Air Bubble Detectors are designed for deployment in bioprocessing applications and harsh environments. The perfect solution for non-invasive bubble detection in processes with high safety requirements.
Air and gas detection
The SONOCHECK ABD06 Air Bubble Detectors can detect air and gas bubbles in fluid-filled tubes and measurement chambers. The intelligent sensors can be used for the monitoring of fluids as well as for wet/dry alarm notifications.
The contactless detection process allows the sensor to be used for applications that require hygienic and contamination-free conditions. The sensor automatically adapts to dynamically changing acoustic conditions. This guarantees a high degree of measurement stability despite fluctuations in the surrounding environment.
process stability and product quality
Air bubble detection is highly relevant for process stability and product quality and is widely used and of added value in multiple systems and applications:
- Bioreactors/fermentators: Detection of excessive foaming in feed/harvest lines
- Chromatography: Prevention of air being pumped into columns & diversion of air infused liquids around the columns
- TFF: Prevention of air entry into filter cassettes
- Feed Stream: Continuous monitoring for air bubbles in the feed to prevent from air entry into the filter
- Pump protection: Detection of air bubbles caused by cavitation and protection from dry running
- Transfer Lines: Notifcation when transfer reservoirs run dry
- Fill & Finish: Detection of undesired air entering vessels to be filled
The SONOCHECK sensors have a user-specific programmable micro-controller with extendible functionalities, such as response time.The air bubble sensors can be adapted for individual tube sizes and other specifications, such as power supply, materials characteristics and signal output.
