KETOS SHIELD gets the job done with efficient real-time water quality monitoring. Our technology is not only EPA compliant and highly accurate for water testing parameters (measuring in ppb). It’s also helping organizations lower up-front costs via a $0-CAPEX subscription model.
As an award-winning water quality management solution, KETOS SHIELD provides real-time monitoring for calcium and 30+ other water testing parameters (such as inorganic materials, heavy metals, and other environmental factors). Monitoring happens via an interoperable, modular system that uploads your data to the cloud for safe, secure, 24/7 access. Water operators get real-time access to current and historical data to understand water quality and composition better.
Why Monitor Water for Calcium with KETOS
Calcium and magnesium enter the water mainly by leaching rocks, which often happens when water in streams runs over rocks containing the mineral.
Calcium can begin to deposit or build up in existing infrastructure, including pipes, water heaters, and boilers. When water is used in cleaning operations, an overabundance of calcium affects the efficacy of soap (preventing it from lathering). While too much calcium can be bad for business, conversely, not enough calcium causes water to become oligotrophic or nutrient efficient, meaning it will only support minimal plant and animal life.
How hard water is depends on the milligrams of calcium carbonate per liter (or ppm). Water with 60 ppm or less is soft. Water with 60-120 ppm is moderately hard, and water at greater than 120 ppm is hard.
Depending on how your operations are using water, it’s vital to monitor its levels. This can ensure disinfection is effective and equipment and infrastructure are protected.
Don’t stop monitoring water at calcium. With KETOS, we make it easy for organizations to choose which water testing parameters they want to track, all from one place.
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.
