Flowrox Pty Ltd announces a new joint venture agreement with Rocsole to manufacture scaling sensors.
To be based on the unique innovation of Rocsole, which combines mathematical modelling and industrial measurement in an innovative way, Flowrox Automation’s sensor will detect scaling inside the process pipe and tomographically images the formed deposits and calculates free volume-index in the process pipe.
The new product will be marketed under the name Flowrox scaling watch and launched in mid-2014; however, the test marketing will start at the beginning of next year through Flowrox subsidiaries. Flowrox will have the exclusive right to sell the product to end users whereas Rocsole concentrates on control solutions together with the chemical manufacturers.
Heikki Hyttinen, CEO of the Flowrox Group explains that the cooperation with Rocsole is a great opportunity both for Flowrox and their customers. The use of sensors will, among other things, decrease the unpredictable interruptions in production in the customer’s process and thus intensify the production, resulting in remarkable cost savings and competitive edge to customers.
Anssi Lehikoinen, CEO of Rocsole adds that the new joint venture enables utilisation of a global sales and distribution channel for the developed solution and sending out a new, Finnish innovation to the world markets.
Flowrox Automation will be headquartered in Kuopio.
