Project: ORCA Sonar System

AUSTRALIAN manufacturer of level, positioning and flow measurement technologies, Hawk Measurement Systems, has developed its new range of transducers which include multi crystal arrays mounted in a single head.

Each sonar array produces a narrow sonar beam, and can operate at lower frequencies than previous designs. Hawk’s new generation transducers offer better penetration, higher sensitivity, and better overall performance.

ORCA Sonar has been designed to measure three process variables simultaneously in the tank including: heavy bed level; lighter floc interface; and clarity of suspended solids to provide online process feedback to operations to optimise the tank.

It also has an automatic industrial cleaning mechanism which makes the unit durable and reliable.

The company’s sonar range provides complete sonar bed level control system for Mining, Water/Wastewater and Industrial applications.

Since the release of the new Orca version we have seen a big sales increase compared to same period last year.

Hawk has received a landmark contract for 26 special Orca Sonar bed level transmitters, for the (AUD) $3.45 billion Ambatovy nickel mine in Madagascar.
