Hawk Measurement Systems  has been manufacturing level measurement sensors for over two decades, many of which have been spent working within the mining industry.

The mining environment takes its toll on level measurement sensors as they are constantly exposed to dust, condensation, snow, rain, wind, steam, and foam, and are expected to work without any downtime.

With such experience behind them, Hawk know that some technologies will not work in certain conditions and as such they recommend 5 kHz, 10 kHz or 15 kHz, low frequency “Self Cleaning” Acoustic Wave level measurement sensors for applications involving:

  • dust
  • dust suppression sprays
  • condensation
  • slurry splash
  • sensor/face/cone build-up
Low frequency Hawk Sultan transducers create a large acoustic wave that provides a self cleaning action, which prevents build up and results in a maintenance free level measurement sensor.

Key advantages of Hawk Sultan “Self Cleaning” Level Measurement Sensors include:

  • self cleaning
  • no build-up 
  • less maintenance
  • reduced blockages
  • fewer bogged crushers 
  • reduced downtime caused by level sensor failure
  • higher productivity
  • increased “Process/Operator Confidence”.
