ORCA Sonar receives Product of the Year Award

Hawk Measurement's ORCA Sonar receives Product of the Year Award from Processing Magazine


Widely regarded as one of the most prestigious awards given in the process industry, Processing Magazine presented Hawk Measurement with its 11th annual Breakthrough Products of the Year Award. Hawk's ORCA Sonar Transducer received front cover exposure and in-depth editorial in Processing's December, 2008 issue.


In March 2008 Hawk introduced a new line of “fourth generation” sonar transducers for improved  sensing of Interface levels in tailings, paste, concentrator and Lamella thickeners, settling tanks, and CCD’s. The new sensors offer big improvements in overall power, penetration, and calibration density range. They provide better capability under high suspended solids loading, ‘sliming,’ and generally upset process conditions.


Jack Evans, President of Hawk Measurement, stated “I am very excited that our Orca Sonar has been selected as a Product of the Year Recipient. Our Development Team has worked hard to bring to market a product to not just monitor but to also control the process. This is truly a breakthrough in improved sensing of interface levels and we are delighted with our customers' reaction.”


The new Hawk array transducer designs include three to seven sonar crystals mounted in a single head. Each sonar array produces a concentrated sonar beam, providing more emitted power and collecting more returned signals. Array transducers yield better penetration, higher sensitivity, and better overall performance in the most difficult environments.
