PST’s technology uses a nonintrusive method to detect and identify liquids inside a closed container, pipe or vessel.

Hawk Measurement Systems (HAWK), a worldwide leader in industrial measurement and monitoring, has been selected as the global sales partner for Perceptive Sensor Technologies (PST). PST patented and released the industry’s first Real-Time Fluid Identification and Condition Monitoring Solution, which can identify any fluid inside a sealed container, tank or pipeline.

PST’s technology, which was originally developed by the Department of Defense to identify chemical weapons inside of artillery shells, uses a nonintrusive method to detect and identify liquids inside a closed container, pipe or vessel. 

“The process automation market has not seen a sensor this revolutionary in over 40 years,” said John Schlitt, chief revenue officer for PST. “This technology will revolutionize 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, among 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 closed containers or pipes.

Jack Evans, global president of Hawk Measurement added: “HAWK is honored 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. Together, we will lead the way in providing customers complete solutions to reduce costs, mitigate risks and increase business agility.”

This core technology will serve as a platform for a variety of applications that HAWK specializes in such as oil and gas, chemical and petrochemical, utility, food and beverage, mining and many other industry segments.
