Hawk Measurement Named 2021 Vaaler Award Recipient

Chemical Processing announces Hawk Measurement’s CGR Level Transmitter as Vaaler Award Winner

Medina, OH, October 5, 2021
Hawk Measurement (HAWK), a global leader in measurement solutions, received Chemical Processing’s Vaaler Award for their CGR, industry’s first 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 (HAWK) is honored to have received this prestigious award for their Centurion Guided Radar (CGR) Level Transmitter. HAWK created the industry’s first and only Guided Wave Radar level transmitter that features Power over Ethernet (PoE) communications. The advantages to PoE connectivity are secure in-plant and remote monitoring, as well as remote sensor setup, diagnostics and troubleshooting abilities. The Centurion Guided Radar (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.

“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.
