Hansford Sensors, the leading global manufacturer of high performance industrial accelerometers, will be continuing its North American program of business development at Reliable Plant 2016. The company will be using the show to announce its newly formed US sales partner, Hansford Sensors USA, and to launch a number of exciting new products, designed to help plant and maintenance engineers improve the accuracy and reliability of vibration and condition monitoring systems.

Hansford Sensors USA is based in League City, Texas, and will be represented at Reliable Plant by Sales Manager and well known industry expert, Dave Gallagher, and founder and Managing Director, Chris Hansford. They’ll be using the conference and exhibition as a platform to talk to customers and recruit new distribution partners who will be able to help the company extend its scope across North America.

Of particular interest to new distributors will be both the range of products and accessories supplied by Hansford Sensors, plus the strength and depth of customer and technical support services. Chris Hansford explains, “We’ve built our global business on outstanding product quality and customer service. We’ve an unrivaled reputation for our ability to help customers in all sectors of industry meet the challenges of vibration and condition monitoring; many of these customers include leading petrochemical, power generation, manufacturing, mining, quarrying and renewable energy companies. In addition, we offer a great choice of products, at keen prices and prompt deliveries, backed by straightforward, friendly and knowledgeable advice”.

On show at Reliable Plant 2016 will be a full range of Hansford Sensors’ latest industrial accelerometers. These include 4-20mA transmitters, AC velocity and vibration sensors, modular systems and switches, plus cable assemblies, connectors and enclosures.

New products will include the industry-standard HS-100 and the low profile HS-420. These are available in intrinsically safe versions (HS-100IS and HS-420IS) approved by UL and CSA Group, with certification for use in North America. Also on show will be the Premium HS-170, which delivers improved frequency response and enhanced efficiency compared with many other market options, and the HS-429 compact vibration switch. The latter automatically trips in the event of excessive vibration levels, allowing critical systems to be shut down before damage can occur.

Chris Hansford adds, “This is the first time that we’ve exhibited at Reliable Plant and we’re looking forward to meeting customers and distributors from across the USA, and learning more about their vibration and condition monitoring challenges”.
