SmartHAWK Sensors monitor equipment at water and waste water facilities to improve operational efficiency and prevent catastrophic failures.

Water and Waste Water

SmartHAWK wireless sensor solutions are designed to monitor the pumps, motors, and blowers in water and waste water treatment plants. SmartHAWK sensors are compatible with existing SCADA systems and provide a new level of insight into the health of specific pieces of equipment as well as overall plant operations. SmartHAWK data can assist in identifying potential problems before they result in catastrophic equipment failure. Applications include aeration tanks, influent pumps, effluent pumps, digesters, and lift station pumps and motors. 


Fuel Storage Facilities

Fuel storage facilities operate machinery and equipment to safely store, process, and transfer volatile liquids. The SmartHAWK wireless monitoring solution assists these facilities to more effectively monitor mission-critical equipment used in storage tank systems. By deploying SmartHAWK wireless sensors, facility managers obtain timely and critical data regarding the health status of their equipment. This assists in avoiding potentially catastrophic events triggered by mechanical failure of fuel storage equipment.

Oil and Gas

Whether used in upstream production or in downstream refining, processing, and storing of fuel, intrinsically safe SmartHAWK wireless sensors represent a reliable and extremely effective tool for monitoring sensitive pumps and fuel storage and transport equipment used at oil and gas processing plants. SmartHAWK sensors provide real-time data which reveals the operating conditions of equipment, thereby minimizing the risk of catastrophic breakdowns. 


Chemical

The chemical industry utilizes specialized industrial pumps and systems which must withstand high temperatures, high pressure, highly corrosive liquids, abrasive slurries and toxic fluids. Use of the SmartHAWK wireless monitoring system can assist in minimizing the risks associated with the operation of sensitive equipment in hazardous chemical processing environments. SmartHAWK sensors help ensure safe and reliable equipment operation through real-time reporting and alerts regarding equipment operational status.

Pulp and Paper

Pulp and Paper manufacturing facilities involve complex processes with many moving components. These include air bearings for product handling, vacuum generation using compressed air, paper pressing, printing and roller adjustments. Many of these processes utilize vacuum and compressed air as a result of the special properties required by paper. Maintaining reliable, energy-efficient vacuum and pressure is critical to an efficient manufacturing process. Deployment of SmartHAWK vibration, dual analog, and power sensors provide plant managers with real-time data and alerts so that they can better assess the health of plant machinery and take preventative measures to avoid costly repairs on critical equipment. 


Process Manufacturing

Process manufacturers utilize industrial equipment to produce goods in bulk quantity.  Industries include food and beverage, paints, and pharmaceuticals. The SmartHAWK wireless sensor system improves safe and efficient plant operations by allowing process manufacturers to monitor operating conditions on site or through remote locations. SmartHAWK  Vibration Sensors provide real-time vibration readings on bearings in pumps to detect performance anomalies. SmartHAWK Power Sensors monitor voltage, current, and other power-related metrics.  SmartHAWK Dual Analog Sensors connect to existing hard-wired sensors to provide a seamless wireless monitoring solution for process manufacturers.
