Hawk Measurement and Bliss Americas Collaborate to Release the Industry’s First Single Chamber Sight Glass with GWR

Hawk Measurement (HAWK), a global leader in measurement solutions, and Bliss Americas, the leading level and skids manufacturer, have teamed up to bring to the industry the most innovative single chamber measuring device on the market, the ACURAGE™.

The patented ACURAGE™ is the industry’s first auto calibrating unique radar gauge for true level reading and instant spot smart calibration. Proudly made in the USA, this unique, ASME approved level measuring instrument displays the level of process fluids in real-time via digital display and built-in sight glass tube. The ACURAGE™ features a built-in safety ball check system to protect the operator from accidental spillage of process liquid in the unlikely event of glass breakage. 

Brian Doyle, Production and Development Manager of Bliss Americas, explained that the decision to design and develop this innovative technology is based on customer requirements and foreseeable direction in the market. He said, “Bliss Americas Research & Development group looks beyond the next product cycle, identifying trends and technologies that will emerge in the next three to five years.” 

This advanced new product will add unsurpassed value to our customer base explained Jack Evans, President of Hawk Measurement. Evans added that, “We are extremely enthusiastic about this collaboration of HAWK’s innovative level measurement technology combined with Bliss America’s high-quality sight glass and magnetic level gauge product line. It just makes sense for our valued customers.”

The ACURAGE™ is different from anything else on the market today. It’s a unique level measuring instrument combining built-in sight glass, highly accurate guided wave radar technology and digital display. This device is made to solve difficult applications such as steam applications and is approved by ASME spec for steam boilers and generators. The integral isolating ball check valves not only make this the safest sight glass on the market to use, but it also provides instant glass field replacement without complicated isolating procedures from the process fluid. The true redundancy of the ACURAGE™ provides full functionality even in a power failure mode which is inevitable in critical level monitoring applications. The ACURAGE™ is ideal for a wide range of chemical and petrochemical applications such as boiler rooms, condensation tanks, storage tanks, and surge tanks.
