In-Stream Total Residual Oxidant Detector
To address the Navy's need for a near-real-time in-stream (NRTIS) total residual oxidant (TRO) detector, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to advance development of the In-Stream Total Residual Oxidant Detector (ISTROD) proven feasible in Phase I. ISTROD's innovative design enables the compact (1.5 cubic feet) ISTROD to perform NRTIS detection of different types of oxidants and TRO levels. In Phase I, POC designed, fabricated, and tested a prototype that was successfully demonstrated at NFESC, Port Hueneme, showing an interrogation time of 3,000 hr) measure (500 mg/L with +/-5% accuracy for turbid feed water of>/=150 NTU), display, and record TRO in military and Navy shipboard environments. Its operation will be validated in an input/output flow from an electrolytic chlorination device readying the system for performance evaluation in a Navy natural seawater test facility.
