The Halogen TRO Sensor
With calibrations that last for months and the ability to be installed directly in the ballast transfer pipes, the Halogen TRO reduces complexity and maintenance while providing flexibility and accuracy.
“We have done extensive testing of this unit and found it to be a robust marine grade field device. We like that the unit mounts right into the ballast water pipe. This avoids sample tubes, sample pumps, and reagents. Looking forward to seeing this on many marine vessels and ballast water treatment systems.” – Kevin Reynolds of OneTank
The Only Wet Tap TRO Sensor for BWMS
Replace Multiple Sensors with One, While Cutting Membranes, Reagents & Maintenance.
Old-Tech Sinks Time and Money
Typical DPD sensors that use membrane and reagent technology drag on the bottom line. The cost of membranes, reagents, and man-hours for maintenance and calibrations are inherent in the old technology. The sooner the old-tech is replaced, the faster the savings are recouped.
Lower BWMS Operating Costs
The TRO sensor arrives factory calibrated, stabilizes in minutes and holds that calibration for months with no membranes or reagents to buy or employ, and very little maintenance at all. Because it can be installed directly in a ballast pipe, there is also no need for flow-control plumbing.
Add Simplicity, Gain Flexibility
With no membranes or reagents to stock or replace, and no need for complicated flow-control piping or even waste lines, Halogen makes BWMS monitoring simple. Owners and operators appreciate the flexible installation options, low maintenance, and calibration stability.
Top Reasons BWMS Engineers choose the Halogen TRO
Certified and Reliable
The Korean Register and DNV have given type approval for the TRO. One version is approved for deployment in explosive environments (IECEx Certificate for Group IIC Gases in Zone 1.)
A Low TCO
After installation, the cost to run Halogen equipment is a fraction of the cost to run an average DPD or sensors that use membranes and reagents. There’s no membrane or reagents to buy, stock, or replace, so there’s no need for constant calibration. Plus there’s no complicated flow-control piping to install or maintain.
Fast Response Means No Guessing
Typical DPD systems have many meters of flow-control piping between the sensor and the actual ballast pipe. Halogen’s TRO can be installed directly in a ballast pipe and has a cycle time of under 50 seconds. That means the monitoring team can monitor the water in the ballast pipe, not the water in the flow control.
The Halogen TRO™: Simple to Install. Simple to Operate.
Locating the sensor in the ballast pipe makes things simple to install and lowers operating costs. A BWMS based around the TRO does not require installation of sampling pumps or lines, additional automatic valves, waste lines or skid mounting. Operators of BWMS that employ the TRO appreciate the simplicity, longevity and easy maintenance. There are no reagents to stock or replace. Preventative maintenance is eliminated since there is no scheduled maintenance for 24 months, and even calibration checks are based on long intervals.
