Pump Protection Switch Is Immune to Buildup
Hawk has launched the Gladiator Admittance Pump Protection Switch, a probe which is immune to buildup. The Gladiator Pump Protection switch can be used in applications where pipe or wall mounting with minimal protrusion is required. It can also be used to detect the presence of liquids to ensure that the pump will never run dry. The switch has immunity to buildup and monitors materials with a range of dielectric constants so that the system is applicable to a variety of liquids.
Hawk has designed the unit to operate in tough industrial environments. It is simple to set up and calibrate and has improved temperature stability. Several probe types are available to meet specific application requirements, and all types are resistant to product buildup.
The Gladiator communicates using Modbus, HART or Profibus protocols. A remote amplifier can be positioned up to 500 meters (1640 feet) away from the unit. The HawkLink GSM/CDMA communication option allows a technician to commission, calibrate, test or check the output of the unit from anywhere in the world.
Gladiator Switches are suitable for variety of production situations. The instrument can monitor liquids applications in the petrochemical, food and beverage, water and wastewater industries. The Gladiator can also monitor levels of dry powdered material for industries including cement, glass, pharmaceutical, mining and minerals, power generation and fertilizer.
