Why Automation is Essential for Ensuring Water Quality for Manufacturing

Manufacturing often spends large amounts of time and money monitoring their water quality. Regular sampling is labor-intensive, with third parties submitting results days or weeks after sampling occurs. There may also be some equipment on-site that only tests for a limited amount of parameters. However, having disparate types of sampling equipment built into the infrastructure, data silos can develop. Water operators may have to balance on-site data with off-site reports, complicating tracking and understanding water quality difficult and complex. 

KETOS simplifies water quality testing by automating the process on-site. The solution can plug into existing infrastructure to centralize data and provide regular reporting to an easy-to-read cloud-enabled dashboard that allows operators to gain real-time insights about water quality on-site. This ensures companies can act fast on results to stay compliant with local regulations – all while saving time and money.

With KETOS, water operators in manufacturing can:

  • Test for 30+ parameters consecutively
  • Remove labor costs associated with manual sampling and third-party labs
  • Act on insights in real-time
  • Automate threshold alerts to gain control over contamination spikes

With KETOS, manual labor and reliance on third parties have become a thing of the past, allowing water operators in manufacturing to gain more control over their operations and act fast to avoid water contamination and compliance-related fines.
