The Sentinel story is similar to that of many inventions: a napkin drawing and a sincere need to provide a better solution for a problem that existed for years with complacent acceptance. Sentinel has evolved significantly since that initial napkin drawing, and continues to disrupt norms. Today, Sentinel represents cutting edge patented technology that is rapidly changing the way water is treated in industrial settings. Previous methods of simulating a heat-transfer surface resulted in poor, unrealistic data due to non-uniform contact between the electric heating elements being used and the inside of the tubes. This was overcome in Sentinel by using a liquid simulated process that provides uniform contact and heat transfer to the tubes and therefore, much more realistic results. In today’s market, the importance of reliability is paramount when margins are razor thin. Sentinel changes the game by helping avoid unexpected failure of equipment and by offering a non-destructive way to ensure you KNOW what is happening in your cooling water system.

Triple Threat Protection

Corrosion. Scale. Bacteria. Every other option is limited to testing one issue. Corrosion coupons and probes let you test for corrosion (while giving you limited details at best). Deposit monitors only let you know if you have the presence of scale. Sentinel lets you attack multiple problem areas at the same time. This is the only way to attack it all. Visual, realistic, and reliable corrosion, scale and bacteria monitoring. Packaged into one easy early detection monitoring device.

Online Visual Reporting

The flagship Model B, alongside the Model A, includes a camera, capturing the efficacy of treatment programs through visually monitoring any appearance of corrosion, scale, or bacteria. While the Model C is not configured with a camera, exposure period data is logged and transmitted to ensure stability during your exposure period. This is the first, integrated, online solution that allows for early detection. At the velocity and skin temperature that models your most critical heat exchangers. It is almost as if Sentinel is a window into your heat exchanger.

Multi-Purpose Evaluation Tool

When Sentinel is utilized by an end-user, it can ensure that problems are quickly and efficiently addressed by both employees and contractual business-to-business relationships.  More-so, this helps give both parties the peace of mind that they have made the right decision by working together.  Likewise, keep existing or win new business utilizing Sentinel as a sales tool. When used by a service provider, Sentinel allows for opportunities to show why you are the best option to handle an account.
