Patented SensiCLĒNE™ Technology
Halogen’s chlorine analyzers feature a unique and patented self-cleaning technology called SensiCLĒNE™ that lowers maintenance and assists in calibration stability.
“Chlorine sensors typically are finicky, high-maintenance devices that require constant maintenance and calibration. Our SensiCLĒNE technology reduces maintenance and lengthens calibration stability.” — Michael Silveri, CEO
What is Halogen's SensiCLĒNE™ and How Does it Work?
Chlorine sensors traditionally are high-maintenance devices. Between changing out membranes and reagents, maintaining a constant flow with no pressure spikes, and constant calibrations, operating teams spend a lot of time interacting with the sensor. The MP5™ was created with stable calibrations and low maintenance as priority requirements. To that end, Halogen designed a simple but highly effective cleaning system called SensiCLĒNE™.
SensiCLĒNE™ utilizes the flow created by the built-in impeller to cycle special polymer beads over the three-electrode sensor and pH probe. This action prevents build-up, greatly reducing the maintenance required. The MP5™ maintains stable calibration and will typically need only a quick wear-parts replacement annually.
SensiCLĒNE™ Technology Lowers Maintenance Interactions
Quick Maintenance at Long Intervals
The MP5™ maintains stable calibrations and needs very little intervention from an operator. The SensiCLĒNE™ technology only requires a simple-to-do and quick-to-accomplish refresh of wear parts on an annual schedule. The kit requires minimal tools and takes only minutes. Better yet, the calibration isn’t affected by the change-out.

- the screened sensor cover and two stainless screws
- the magnetically coupled impeller and wear-ring

Many Applications Benefit from a Self-Cleaning, Low-Maintenance Analyzer
Halogen’s technology helps maintain stable calibrations while lowering maintenance requirements. This combination makes MP5™ a good option for monitoring stations that might otherwise involve constant crew rollouts for operator interventions. When packaged with remote telemetry options, the MP5™ can be the foundation for IoT monitoring solutions. See below for example applications.
Suspended directly in the a drinking water reservoir, an MP5™ chlorine sensor can report via a cellular telemetry option. When running on an optional battery kit, the MP5™ can sample at predefined intervals and operates with no maintenance interaction for a month.
Municipalities that currently have to roll a truck to know with certainty that homes at the end of the line are getting appropriate PPM can lower costs and increase accuracy by putting an MP5™ directly in the neighborhood water pipe. Data can broadcast via cellular telemetry.
Water aging and other degradation issues in a distribution grid can be discerned by deploying MP5™ analyzers at desired points in the system. Operators can track temperature, conductivity, pH, and even ORP no matter the flow or pressure (up to 10.5 bar) via remote telemetry options.
CRUISE SHIP DRINKING WATER
To guard against Legionella, cruise lines need to monitor chlorine levels in their freshwater tanks, guard against contamination from source providers, and sample at the actual taps. SensiCLĒNE™ technology and the flexible installation options of the MP5™ analyzer allow operators to create solutions that will work in this tough environment.
AIRLINE WATER TANKER MONITORING
Studies in the UK show water tankers as a source of contamination in airline drinking water, but monitoring these mobile refill units is a highly manual process, making consistency difficult in a rushed environment. Self-cleaning, durable, and flow-independent, the MP5™ can be the foundation of an source-side solution.
Environmental Water Reclamation (EWR) is a hot topic in areas that are facing water shortages, but remote holding tanks can also become hot spots for all sorts of bacterial growth. Thanks in part to SensiCLĒNE™, the MP5™ is unaffected by flow and turbidity, making it a good choice to build a robust, low-maintenance monitoring system.
