KETOS SHIELD allows for total nitrites monitoring (and 30+ other water testing parameters) in real-time, all while lowering up-front costs from manual sampling and third-party lab fees by leveraging an innovative $0-CAPEX subscription model.
Discover our award-winning water management system that can provide water operators with real-time access to data and lab-accurate monitoring. Check your nitrate levels and 30+ other parameters. Follow along with the latest water testing parameters on your very own customizable dashboard that’s available via any mobile device.
Why Monitor Water for Nitrites with KETOS
Nitrites can naturally occur in low levels in groundwater. However, levels can spike if surface run-off from agricultural processes (including fertilizer and animal waste) or sewage leaks go unchecked. Nitrites become an issue once they enter surface and groundwater as they can stimulate bacteria growth.
If nitrites are not removed from process water or wastewater, they can cause severe algae growth in water sources, depleting the water of oxygen and leading to mass die-offs and potential ecosystem collapse. It can also cause odor problems.
Nitrites are also highly toxic to humans and animals and can enter the body as a nitrate. In high levels, it can disrupt oxygen delivery. This is why it’s essential to monitor for and properly remediate nitrites, particularly in agricultural and sewage treatment scenarios. Understanding the levels of nitrites in water and when spikes may occur can help protect existing water supplies and the surrounding community from contamination.
Get your water testing parameters (including nitrites) delivered to your organization via one interoperable source.
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.
