Oct. 5, 2021

Hawk Measurement, a manufacturer of measurement solutions, received Chemical Processing’s Vaaler Award for its Centurion Guided Radar (CGR) Level Transmitter, a guided wave radar level transmitter with PoE communications. 

More than 50 years ago, Chemical Processing inaugurated the Vaaler Awards to honor products and services that have dramatically improved the operations and economics of plants in the chemical industry. The Vaaler Award takes place every two years, and voting is comprised of an independent and impartial panel of judges that are from leading chemical companies in the industry. These judges evaluate each entry for the significance of the contribution to chemical plant operations, its novelty or uniqueness, and its breadth of application. 

Hawk Measurement is honored to have received this award for the CGR Level Transmitter. Hawk's Guided Wave Radar level transmitter features Power over Ethernet (PoE) communications, offering advantages such as secure in-plant and remote monitoring, remote sensor setup, diagnostics and troubleshooting abilities. The CGR Level Transmitter is ideal for the measurement of liquids, sludge, powders, and granules to a range of 38m (124ft) for level and interface measurement, the company says.

"I am extremely proud of the Hawk team for all of their hard work to develop quality technology and bring the most innovative products to market. We are extremely honored to win this caliber of award and it drives us to continue to produce best-in-class products and services for our customers,” said Jack Evans, global president of Hawk Measurement.

The awards are named after John C. Vaaler (1899-1963), chairman of Chemical Processing’s Editorial Board from 1961 until his death. He became editor in chief of Chemical Processing in 1946, after 24 years in the chemical and related industries.
