Foam System-Lesson Learned
We got a Hale Foamlogix system on our 2007 engine. Shortly after it was delivered, I was reading the manual and found the section that describes how to calibrate the foam system to work with your specific foam concentrate. I'd never even thought of having to do this until I read about it.
It made me wonder how many systems are out there that havent been initialized by the end user, because the mfr. didnt specifically tell them it was important. When I did the calibration sequence, which wasnt terribly complicated, our system thought it had pumped 2 gallons and change of foam and it had only pumped 1 3/4 gallons. I followed the instructions and made the adjustment.
I thought it might be helpful to pass this along to anyone using foam injection systems (specifically Hale). Read the user manual and see the secton on end user setup and read about "foam pump feedback calibration".
I posted this today because after a repair of the system, we discovered it was back at factory default values and we had to run the program sequence again.
