Commercial Cooling Tower
Low-Maintenance, Online, Near-time Chlorine Sensor
The technology of Halogen’s MP5™ chlorine analyzer allows operators and engineers to create monitoring solutions that solve longstanding issues.
Monitoring residuals in commercial cooling tower applications is not an easy problem. Many systems operate at high cycles of concentration due to the conductivity and hardness found in water. To slow the formation of build-up, many operators use film-forming corrosion inhibitors. The resulting organic contaminants make it difficult to read chlorine levels in the system’s water. HSI’s MP5™ chlorine sensor is ideally suited for these challenging applications. Not only can it measure chlorine OR bromine, but the SensiCLĒNE™ technology cleans the electrodes continuously to prevent film build-up.
Halogen’s MP5™ is well suited for monitoring cooling towers in open- or closed-loop systems, as well as closed-circuit systems. Just one MP5™ can monitor free chlorine, pH, temperature, conductivity, and ORP. Because the MP5™ is unaffected by turbidity, flow, or pressure, it can be placed inside a closed loop, in a dead leg, or near an intake or discharge valve.
The MP5™is compact, sturdy, and does not use membranes, electrolyte, or reagents. Unlike the older technologies used in other amperometric sensors, the MP5™ analyzer is self-cleaning and unaffected by changes in flow, pressure, or temperature. It also automatically compensates for changes in pH and doesn’t lose calibration if dried out.
Solve Cooling Tower Water Monitoring Problems with the MP5™
Track the important data remotely
Halogen’s MP5™ measures Chlorine or Bromine, pH, Temperature, Conductivity, and RapidResponse ORP in one compact online near-time unit. A cellular-enabled off-grid remote telemetry option is available.
Monitor at the Source
Because the MP5™ can operate in the main flow pipe at pressures from 0-147psi (10 bar) and can generate its own flow, operators can know the current condition of water in the pipe in near-time, even when the water isn’t moving.
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 Sensors With Patented Technology to Modernize Your Testing
Bare Electrode Sensor
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.
