Why Automation is Essential for Ensuring Water Quality at Energy Companies

Energy companies need to monitor for water quality often. Depending on the energy underlying the operations, for example, coal, water remediation becomes an essential part of the energy production process. Operators are under pressure to monitor for contamination in and around their operations proactively. In addition, there are stringent compliance and regulatory KPIs to maintain.

Automating water quality monitoring makes it easier for water operators within energy companies to maintain compliance related to effluent discharge. The automation process allows for more regular rigorous testing and ensures that any spikes in contaminants can be addressed in real-time.

With KETOS, energy companies can:

  • Test 30+ parameters (including heavy metals)
  • Gain lab-quality EPA-compliant results on-site, in real-time
  • Collect and maintain historical data for better reporting
  • Collect and aggregate data from multiple locations to centralize analysis

KETOS offers an inter-operable, modular solution to water monitoring to help energy companies automate their water monitoring processes, ensuring better reporting and compliance, all while helping to lower labor and operational costs related to water quality.
