Hawk Measurement acquires SIL2 / SIL3 certification for its Centurion Guided Radar to improve reliability in safety instrumented systems in hazardous operations

14 May 2018

Hawk Measurement Systems (HAWK), a global leader in measurement solutions, has announced that it has earned Safety Integrity Level rating SIL2 / SIL3 to aid in reducing safety risks in hazardous applications from the International Electrotechnical Commission. This Commission's (IEC) standard IEC 61508 defines SIL using requirements grouped into two broad categories: hardware safety integrity and systematic safety integrity. A device or system must meet the requirements for both categories to achieve a given SIL.

Achieving this SIL certification means HAWK’s Centurion Guided Radar measurement systems will provide operators with the added insurance that it will consistently and reliably identify all processes considered hazardous and, if failure was to occur, determine that level of risk. The rating will help evaluate whether this specific technology for the measurement of multiple mediums such as liquids, sludge, powders and granules to a range of 18.5m (60ft) for level meets the selected risk tolerance level.

These standards have been widely accepted globally to help define Safety Instrumented Systems and their reliability as a means of assessing and improving their safety.

According to Jack Evans, President (Hawk Measurement America), “Risk reduction can be an expensive procedure and operators are looking to reduce that risk to a level as low as reasonably practicable. We take great pride that our Centurion Guided Radar measurement systems have sufficient operating history and that they have a proven track record. HAWK has long been committed to safety and risk reduction and earning SIL2 / SIL3 compliancy will establish a rigorous development process so that our customers can benefit from the advancing technologies that we have to offer. This certification is just another way we assist our customers achieve compliance while demonstrating our involvement to reduce risk.”
