Pronghorn Technologies Secures Funds to Further Develop its Total Residual Oxidant Sensor

Pronghorn Technologies has received funds to continue the development of the total residual oxidant (TRO) sensor system, which has been in development since 2005. Valued at $1.05 million, the fund is allocated under a NAVSEA Phase II SBIR contract.

TRO Marine Smart Sensor

The TRO sensor is being developed for use with shipboard desalination systems to produce water disinfection systems and potable water that clean cooling lines for HVAC and propulsion systems. The small in-stream sensor can constantly detect and report residual oxidant levels present in seawater streams enhanced with hypochlorite, which can kill marine organisms.

The President and CEO of Pronghorn Technologies, Weston Welch stated that the TRO Marine Smart sensor reduces the cost and maintenance involved with the available technology. Furthermore, the system helps reduce the damage to marine life from excess chlorine discharge. In comparison to other available sensors, the TRO sensor from Pronghorn provides better calibration stability and real-time measurement and minimizes the labor required for maintenance.

The development will be carried out at the Wyoming Technology Business Center in Laramie. Since 2005, around $2.6 million has been provided in grant for the development of the technology.
