PST’s technology, which was originally developed by the US Department of Defense to identify chemical weapons inside of artillery shells, uses a non-intrusive method to detect and identify liquids inside a closed container, pipe, or vessel. John Schlitt, Chief Revenue Officer for PST said: “The process automation market has not seen a sensor this revolutionary in over 40 years. This technology will revolutionise the measurement industry over the next decade, providing product identification and validation inside process pipes or tanks while simultaneously making measurements like flow, density, custody transfer, mass balance, safety alarms, and many others on PST’s development roadmap.”
Products designed by PST include Transmix-ID, Alarm-ID, and Portable-ID amongst several others in current development. The Transmix-ID is a clamp-on sensor capable of detecting and identifying liquid flowing in pipelines to monitor and identify the interface between two liquids. The Alarm-ID is a tank overfill and underfill protection system. The Portable-ID is a portable sensor capable of identifying liquids and diagnosing process problems inside of closed containers or pipes. Future development of products includes flow and gas identification as well as interface and subsea applications.
Jack Evans, Global President of Hawk Measurement said: “HAWK is honoured and elated to partner with such a technologically advanced company such as PST. The PST product line and technology coincides with HAWK’s values and commitment to bring the most innovative products to our customers. As a leading manufacturer of level, positioning, asset monitoring and flow measurement, the PST partnership elevates HAWK’s product offerings to the global industrial market.
