Hansford Sensors - International Centre of Excellence for Vibration Monitoring

Industrial Accelerometers

At Hansford Sensors, we design, develop and manufacture a wide range of high performance industrial accelerometers, vibration transmitters (loop powered sensors) and ancillary equipment. Our products are used globally by many of the world’s leading companies. In each case, we deliver an unrivalled combination of product quality and reliability, prompt delivery, competitive prices and outstanding customer and technical support.

Accelerometers & Predictive Maintenance

Our industrial accelerometers and vibration transmitters or loop powered sensors (LPS) play a vital role in predictive or preventative maintenance routines.  Tough and built to last, they deliver precision measurements time after time, even under the most demanding conditions.

You can easily fit our industrial accelerometers to fans, pumps, motors and other production and process equipment.  Data can be captured locally or remotely using PLC, BMS or 4-20mA input modules, while our comprehensive range of cables, connectors and accessories make installation and operation quick and simple. 

Vibration monitoring for industrial applications

In the Metals industry, our vibration sensors and 4-20mA vibration transmitters (loop powered sensors) protect key assets, including rolling mills and cooling towers.  In Pharmaceuticals, the complete fan and motor assemblies in air handling units are protected by our vibration sensors.  In Wind Power, our accelerometers prevent damage and keep turbines turning in all weathers.  In the Marine applications we monitor cargo pumps, turbochargers, Azipods and ventilation fans to avoid machine failure and delays.  In Paper mills our industrial accelerometers are built to withstand aggressive conditions for total reliability.  In the Coal & Quarry sector, pumps, crushers and conveyors are monitored by Hansford Sensors.  In the Food and Drink industry our accelerometers monitor mixers, centrifuges, ovens, fans and conveyors, while in the Cement sector our vibration sensors and 4-20mA vibration transmitters (LPS) are used in critical condition monitoring systems on kilns, crushers, mills and silos.

Product Focus

New vibration switch protects critical assets

We have launched an exciting new compact vibration switch to protect machinery against unexpected shutdown and repair costs. The HS-429 automatically trips in the event of excessive vibration levels, allowing critical systems to be shut down before damage can occur.

Feature Application


Cement Manufacturing

Cement manufacturing is one of the most demanding industrial environments, with high concentrations of dust, extremes of temperature and severe mechanicla stresses on operating equipment. This tough operating environment means that techniques such as condition monitoring and predictive maintenance are essential to continious production.
