Potable Water Chlorine Analyzer for Air Travel
Online, Near-time Chlorine Monitoring is Possible
The technology of Halogen’s MP5™ allows operators and engineers to create solutions for analyzing airline potable water.
Monitoring the potable water for airplanes is not an easy problem. Among the issues to resolve are a lack of consistent flow and pressure at the tap, and multiple opportunities for contamination between influent water and the plane tanks, including but not limited to mobile tanker trucks. Add to these issues the time crunch that ground crews face, and it’s easy to see why multiple studies recommend travelers avoid tap-water choices on the beverage cart, including coffee, tea, and ice.
Halogen’s MP5™ is a good foundation for potable water chlorine monitoring solutions for air travel. The MP5™ is compact, sturdy and does not use membranes, electrolyte, or reagents. Unlike other amperometric sensors, the MP5™ amperometric chlorine analyzer is self-cleaning and unaffected by changes in flow, pressure, or temperature. The MP5™ automatically compensates for changes in pH and will not lose calibration if dried out. The MP5™ is the only chlorine analyzer approved for NSF-61 use in drinking water without requiring a waste line, so it can be deployed in-pipe, in-stream, or in-tank.
Air Travel Chlorine Monitoring with the MP5™ Analyzer
Track the important parameters
Halogen’s MP5™ measures Free Chlorine, Conductivity, pH, RapidResponse ORP, and Temperature in one compact online near-time unit. A cellular-enabled off-grid remote telemetry option is available.
Flexible NSF-61 Deployments
The MP5™ is certified for NSF-61 use in drinking water with no required waste stream. It can be deployed in influent water pipes using a PVC Tee kit or a retractable insertion collar, used as a side-stream testing unit, or submerged.
The MP5™ arrives factory calibrated, stabilizes in minutes, and maintains calibration for months in most potable water applications. Changes in flow, pressure, or temperature — even annual maintenance — will not affect calibration.
Amperometric Chlorine Sensors With Patented Technology to Modernize Your Testing
Bare Electrode Sensor
Amperometric Sensors have many advantages over the older membrane and reagent technology. Halogen’s implementation of bare 3-electrode amperometric technology provides pH-stabilized measurements of Free Chlorine without introducing additional complexity to your workflow.
The old amperometric technology used by competitor sensors still requires a membrane and electrolyte to guard against sensor fouling. Such membranes are sensitive to flow and pressure spikes. Halogen’s patented SensiCLĒNE™ technology prevents fouling without introducing pressure or flow sensitivity.
