Kuntze's patented ASR® technology effectively removes pollutants from sensor surface. Learn more about the technology below.
Automatic Sensor Cleaning, or ASR®, is Kuntze's patented sensor cleaning technology. The goal of the ASR® cleaning is to reduce the amount of maintenance associated with manually cleaning the probe.
The cleaning is carried out electrochemically by the electrolysis of water: H2O >> O2 and H2
The electrochemical cleaning is multi-layered:
- Water splits into elemental hydrogen and oxygen gas, blasting away persistent coatings.
- Oxygen oxidizes organic compounds.
- Hydrogen reduces rust and manganese oxide and likewise destroys organic
The produced gas volumes are small and quickly recombine automatically to H2O.
The ASR® has proven to be efficient against most organic and inorganic coatings.
