Acoustic Level Measurement Superior to Radar

Why Acoustic level technology is superior to Radar technology in wet and difficult applications

Application problem: The client had installed low frequency Radar transmitters to control his ROM bin level applications. The ROM bin had water spray dust suppression installed to reduce dust problems when the truck was tipping. The Radar constantly failed because of buildup over and inside the focalizer cone. The Radar also failed when some build-up…

Crane Collision Protection - Hawk Measurement Microwave Switch

Crane Collision Protection – Hawk Measurement Microwave Switch

Application problem: The customer had previously used lanyard rope switches, to protect the boom on stacker/reclaimers, from coming in contact with stockpiles. Lanyard rope switches, require high maintenance support, to keep them operational. If the lanyard rope is not tensioned properly, the system will not work. Brackets supporting the lanyard rope were frequently bent by…

Flour Silo Level Measurement Process Automation - Hawk Measurement Sultan Acoustic Level –

Flour Silo Level Measurement Process Automation – Hawk Measurement Sultan Acoustic Level

Application problems: 1. The customer had previous problems, where the level transmitters were unstable during filling operations. 2. The customer had used electro-mechanical level systems, where cables had broken off and gone through the feeder, causing major maintenance cost. 3. The customer wanted to provide a low cost communications package for the control room PLC’s.…

Cement Powder Silo Level Measurement - Hawk Measurement Sultan Acoustic Level

Cement Powder Silo Level Measurement – Hawk Measurement Sultan Acoustic Level

Application problem: Each silo contains cement of particular type specifications. One or several silos will contain a particular type of cement product. Most manufacturers or shippers of cement powder will have multiple storage silo level applications. Bins are generally fed pneumatically, or via air slide from a process or delivery vehicle. Product is normally removed…

Cement Silo Level Detection - Hawk Measurement Admittance Switch

Cement Silo Level Detection – Hawk Measurement Admittance Switch

Application problem: High level alarms were required for cement bins in freezing conditions prone to probe build-up. Vibrating fork style switches suffered from build-up and were not rugged enough for these conditions. One other important thing is that the moisture of the different materials can vary a lot from time to time that is a…

Open Channel Flow Measurement - Hawk Measurement Sultan Flow

Open Channel Flow Measurement – Hawk Measurement Sultan Flow

Application Problem: Open channel flow instruments require accurate measurement of the surface level of a liquid. A flume, channel or structure which has a known characteristic flow per measured head, together with the measured liquid level, accurately define the flow rate through the system. Traditional systems use a stilling well and pressure level measurement system…
