Why Automation is Essential for Guaranteed Quality in Beverage Companies

Beverage companies must monitor water quality to ensure product quality and taste consistency across batches. They also may require active monitoring to ensure that the water they pull from – specifically groundwater – complies with local regulations.

Some organizations may pull their water supplies from multiple sources, including municipal and groundwater supplies, which would require quality monitoring. The result is a multifaceted approach to sampling, with different areas potentially requiring monitoring simultaneously. Manual labor on-site is needed to pull the requisite samples, coupled with third-party lab costs can begin to get expensive. However, with automation, beverage companies not only get a better understanding of their water quality but can also lower costs.

Using KETOS, water samples can be pulled from multiple sources at once for complete lifecycle monitoring. Automation can help beverage companies know when filters need replacing and the level of filter performance to ensure consistent quality and taste. Automation also allows them to act fast if there are spikes in specific parameters, ensuring they stay compliant with local regulatory bodies.

With KETOS, beverage companies:

  • Stay compliant with regular real-time testing
  • Test for 30+ parameters at once 
  • Get historical data for predictive maintenance and prescriptive filtration
  • Reduce time/expense associated with manual sampling/lab testing 

While water operators get a better understanding of the water quality at every step of the production process, companies spend just pennies on the dollar for automated testing and state-of-the-art devices installed into existing infrastructure without high upfront costs.
