Why Automation is Essential for Ensuring Water Quality for Consumer Goods

Water operators in Consumer Goods manufacturing have deliverables and quotas they need to hit to ensure contract fulfillment. Any unscheduled downtime can throw off expectations. One primary challenge for many companies, for example, is boiler uptime. If a boiler is down, it has a knock-on effect across shifts and operations. The health of process water is also a concern, as is the balance of chemicals in mill tanks. 

However, boiler uptime, mill tanks, and process water are manageable with careful, balanced water treatment. By automating water quality testing, water operators can quickly assess the health of boiler water to keep chemical balances in line with optimal operational efficiency. Automating water testing also allows operators to set threshold alerts to get immediately notified if there’s a spike in specific parameters (like total harness, orthophosphates, calcium, and more).

With KETOS, consumer goods water operators get a solution that can:

  • Monitor for water quality 24/7/365
  • Send cloud-enabled updates to water operators on/off-site
  • Monitor from multiple locations (with a modular setup) at once while centralizing reports
  • Set threshold alerts to watch for parameter spikes that may affect uptime

KETOS doesn’t just automate the on-site water quality monitoring. Instead, it allows organizations to keep their water data in-house and removes the need for third-party testing and reporting. As a result, companies gain more control over their water quality and can act faster on water quality changes to increase uptime and keep operations running smoothly across every shift.
