KETOS SHIELD allows for real-time water monitoring of heavy metals (like chromium) and many other water testing parameters – while lowering up-front costs with our industry-leading $0-CAPEX subscription model.
KETOS SHIELD provides real-time monitoring for chromium and 30+ other water testing parameters (such as other heavy metals, inorganic materials, and various environmental factors). Monitoring happens via an interoperable, modular system that uploads your data to the cloud for easy 24/7 access from anywhere. Water operators simply set the parameters they want, decide how often they want water quality tested, and collect results via an automated process that removes the need for manual interventions or third-party lab reports.
Why Monitor Water for Chromium with KETOS
Chromium is released into the environment primarily through leaching. However, it’s also released in large quantities from stationary point sources resulting from human activities. These activities include manufacturing such as metal processing, glass making, textiles, electroplating, and cement production. Landfills can also release chromium into groundwater.
Chromium is a highly toxic substance and is a known carcinogen. The EPA currently has a Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) for total chromium at 0.1 mg/L.
Due to its high toxicity levels, it’s essential to remove chromium from wastewater and safely dispose of it. Continuous monitoring of water containing chromium can help ensure proper treatment and disposal and reduce levels at the source to maintain compliance with local regulatory bodies.
Monitoring for chromium is easy with KETOS – but it’s just the beginning of what we can do.
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.
