The ultramodern Foam Digital Detection Imaging device (FoamDDI) accurately controls airflow, temperature, and sequencing when testing foam tendencies in oils and lubricants. The fully automatic FoamDDI augments these measurements using our unique VISION Algorithm to accurately determine both the station and dynamic foam heights with precision and accuracy. Relying on the human eye to measure foam heights is unreliable, time consuming and can be costly due to user bias. The FoamDDI imaging device eliminates these issues and the need for sample manipulation and critical timing involved with other foam detector methods. Using a patented heating and cooling system the FoamDDI records, calculates, and displays accurate results with little to no operation bias. Determinations come from this foam detector in minutes!See also our StoneDDI device.

How it works:

  • Using a high-resolution camera with state-of-the-art optics for lubrication testing, FoamDDI quickly brings a sample in the inserted cylinder to test temperature.
  • After a soaking time, the foam detector and analyzer insert air for foam production.
  • Air Flow is controlled using Mass Air Flow Controllers (MFC)
  • At the 5-minute mark, an LED light source is activated.
  • VISION Algorithm is activated and begins analysis.
  • The complete sequence is recorded and analyzed.
  • Test is completed or the next sequence can automatically be continued if desired.

features_fully auto touch3 ports for Integrated Industrial Computer for Easy Interface with Network, Direct LIMS Connectivity, USB, Ethernet and HDMI Outputs, and Stores Results for Transfer to PDF reports & Email.
features_full automationThe Tendency to foam and the Stability of it. FoamDDI accurately controls the air flow, temperature and sequence, which is then augmented using a unique VISION algorithm to accurately determine the height of static and dynamic foam, while greatly improving the precision and accuracy after pushing run.
The totalizer measures the total volume of air leaving the foam test.
Our high revolutionary camera is matched with a revolutionary glass air chamber designed to maintain a 180 degree view of the sample from the front side of the FoamDDI.
