Viennese start-up usePAT gmbh has developed an add-on called soniccatch for various process-sensors to catch small particles in industrial liquids and present the resulting agglomerates to process probes. This improves the accuracy of measurements or enables measurements which weren’t possible before. New possibilities for process optimization in various industrial areas arose due to the generated enhanced data. A time- and resource consuming sample-taking is no longer necessary. Application fields include bio-tech, pharma, petrochemical and chemical production as well as research institutions.
The study of live cells is possible without interrupting the process-workflow due to measurements. In reverse, the technology in the application sonicwipe can prevent particles from settling on the probe. The sensitive probe-windows can be kept clean and the sensors do not have to be removed from the process for cleaning, enabling a continuous process flow.
