KETOS SHIELD solves for measuring molybdenum (and 30+ water testing parameters) in water in real-time. It also saves upfront investment costs via an industry-leading $0-CAPEX subscription model.
Discover a modern solution that can monitor molybdenum levels in water in real-time. One device can also analyze dozens of other parameters (including inorganic materials, heavy metals, and other environmental factors). Stay connected to your data 24/7 via a customizable dashboard accessible on mobile devices.
Why Monitor Water for Molybdenum (VI) with KETOS
Molybdenum is naturally occurring and, therefore, often found in water sources. While the EPA has determined safe levels of molybdenum in drinking water to be 40 μg/L, the World Health Organization recommends it should not exceed 70 μg/L. However, generally, its natural concentration in water is around 1 to 2 μg/L (well below stipulated levels). However, levels of molybdenum in water can rise with human industrial activity, which can have a detrimental effect on ground and surface water. Mining, in particular, as well as coal ash landfills and ponds, often contain high levels of molybdenum, and without careful monitoring and remediation, molybdenum can enter the environment and cause levels in the surrounding surface and groundwater to spike. This is a serious environmental concern, making the regular monitoring of molybdenum a critical part of the water remediation process.
Monitoring for water testing parameters like molybdenum (VI) is simple with KETOS – but that’s just the start.
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.
