KETOS SHIELD provides water operators with monitoring in real time. Sample for cadmium and other heavy metals while lowering your up-front costs for testing water parameters with an industry-leading $0-CAPEX subscription model.
KETOS SHIELD is an award-winning water management solution that provides real-time monitoring for cadmium and 30+ other water testing parameters (including other heavy metals such as lead, arsenic, iron, and more). Monitoring happens via an interoperable, modular system that uploads your data to the cloud for easy 24/7 access from anywhere. This helps water operators gain a holistic understanding of their water quality.
Why Monitor Water for Cadmium with KETOS
Cadmium is a heavy metal that often combines with other substances, including oxygen, sulfur, and chlorine. It is often extracted as a by-product during zinc, lead, and copper production. It’s also used in many consumer products (jewelry, batteries, and metal coatings). Cadmium can leach into water via galvanized pipes, and levels of cadmium in water might be higher in water with low pH, as low pH water can be more corrosive to plumbing systems. It can also get into water due to its use in various industrial processes. Even low levels of exposure to cadmium over time can cause multiple types of health issues in humans. For this reason, the US EPA, FDA, and DWI all limit the maximum amount of cadmium in water to 0.005 mg/L.
Monitoring for cadmium using KETOS is just the beginning.
The KETOS SHIELD remotely monitors dozens of water quality parameters. Which one do your water operators test most often?
KETOS is a fully integrated platform that combines hardware, software, connectivity, automated reporting, predictive analytics, and maintenance to automate water monitoring and testing. KETOS enables water operators to identify and solve mission-critical water efficiency and quality challenges in real-time, or before they happen through predictive algorithms, to ensure that water meets specific quality and safety standards.
