Hawk Measurement attains North America, Canada and Europe gas and dust approval certification with its Centurion Guided Radar system

Hawk Measurement Systems (HAWK), a global leader in measurement solutions, has announced that it has been awarded explosion proof, flameproof and dust ignition proof certification by FM Approvals for FM, FM Canada and ATEX standards. Adding to the existing IECEx rating, Hawk now covers all major market areas.

FM Approvals is a globally recognized and trusted certification agency. Hawk is proud to have its in-house engineering; production and process control meet the high standards expected.

Along with the recent additions of SIL2, high temperature and high pressure designs the Centurion Guided Radar is a versatile and reliable continuous level measurement instrument that will be a pillar of Hawk’s continuing growth and disruption to the world wide level measurement market.

Principle of Operation

Guided-wave technology sends the radar pulse down a probe to measure either liquids, solids or a low dielectric to high dielectric Interface level. The pulse hits the surface and / or Interface and is reflected back up the probe to the sensor, where the transit time is translated into a distance using time of fight and time expansion. The amplitude of the reflection depends on the dielectric constant of the product. 

Hawk is a world leader in level, positioning and flow measurement, providing cutting edge equipment to the global industrial market. With 30 years of experience and a record of success in a wide range of areas including mining/mineral processing, water supply/waste water, bulk material handling and chemical, our on-going commitment is to provide industry leading technology with cost-effective solutions.
