Hawk Sultan Sonar sludge bed level transmitterHAWK’s Sultan Sonar sludge bed level transmitter is ideal for providing reliable measurement of the compact bed level in clarifiers. It not only automates bed level measurement, but also provides indication and control of an upset condition before the bed level flows over the clarifier. The transmitter utilizes HAWK’s acoustic sonar. A transducer that is slightly submerged in the liquid transmits acoustic waves through the dense settling hindered layer and can detect either the height of the sludge bed or the flocculent interface level.
