About:

usePAT GmbH is a company active in the field of ultrasonic technology for enhancing measurements of sensors and probes in industrial liquids. The research on this topic started already in 2005 at the Technical University of Vienna. usePAT builds certified add-ons for in-line probes, which are to be understood as a supplement to these in the form of process fittings. These improve or enable measurements in liquids directly in the industrial process. In the commercialization of its technology, usePAT uses the efforts to increasingly base decisions of process control on data (Industry 4.0). The goal is to provide these data as accurately as possible in order to enable the best possible process control. The ultrasonic devices soniccatch, sonicwipe and sonicclean thus support inline as well as real-time measurements in production processes with regard to sensitivity and stability. usePAT helps to measure data that could not previously be collected directly in the process. On the one hand, this is achieved by agglomeration of the particles hence improving the sensitivity of the probes. On the other hand probe windows are kept clean. By eliminating the need for sampling or cleaning, the safety of employees, productivity and process control are increased. The measured data are immediately available and can be processed and stored directly. This continuously generated, accurate process information opens up new possibilities for process optimization and cost savings in industrial and R&D applications.

Which input provides your business model/core technology towards a bio-based economy?

usePAT supports its customers in generating real-time data directly in industrial fluids – in production or in R&D. Time and costly intense offline sampling is reduced to a minimum due the enhanced performance of PAT probes that are increasingly used in bio-tech. By using the CE certified usePAT products, data-based process control can be implemented more accurately and stable.

Which market/clients do you address and which short-/long-term goals do you have?

usePAT uses ultrasonic forces directly in industrial liquids to support measurements. This approach is entirely new because usePAT´s products generate virtual in-line samples, allowing real-time measurements to be carried out directly in the process. On the other hand, surfaces are cleaned very gently in-line, as the ultrasound forces act in the liquid and not on the sensor, thus not harming it.
