Praetorian Fiber Optic Sensing Conveyor Health Monitoring System

Brand: Hawk Measurement Systems

The Praetorian Conveyor Health Monitoring System (CHMS) is a plant & site wide single solution for detecting when critical parts of the idler are beginning to fail. The early detection warnings allow operators to control down time and avoid catastrophic costly unplanned shutdowns.

HAWK's Praetorian Fiber Optic Sensing detects abnormalities in conveyor idler performance that other technologies cannot.
  • Proven ROI by predicting breakages and failure BEFORE occuring
