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 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 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 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 accelerometers are built to withstand aggressive conditions for total reliability.  In the Coal & Quarry sector, pumps, crushers and conveyors are monitored by Hansford Sensors.  And in the Food and Drink industry our accelerometers monitor mixers, centrifuges, ovens, fans and conveyors.

We're hiring!

As part of our continued growth and success we're looking to hire a driven and dynamic Business Development Co-ordinator. You will be responsible for supporting business development within the company in national and international markets to ensure continued growth.
