Self Cleaning Level Measurement for Tough Environments

Thursday, July 8th, 2010

The mining environment is normally very tough and level measurement sensors are exposed to dust, condensation, snow, rain, wind, steam, foam etc 24-7 and are expected to work without any downtime. Acoustic Wave technology creates a “Self Cleaning” action by its own pressure waves and that has made sensors based on this technology very reliable for tough conditions.
Hawk has manufactured level measurement sensors for over 20 years. With a very long experience from the mining industry we know that some technologies will not work in certain conditions. Based on our knowledge we 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
The low frequency Sultan transducers create a massive acoustic wave that provides a self cleaning action, preventing build-up, resulting in a maintenance free level sensor! Many customers have told us that Hawk Self Cleaning sensors have worked with little or no cleaning or maintenance for between 10 and 20 years.
Hawk Sultan “Self Cleaning” Level Measurement Sensor Advantages:
• 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”
• 24 month money back application guarantee
