Get salinity insights plus 30+ other water testing parameters factors in real-time – while lowering up-front costs with our industry-leading $0-CAPEX subscription model.
Our proprietary water quality monitoring solution, KETOS SHIELD, provides timely monitoring for salinity and dozens of parameters (such as heavy metals, nutrients, and more). Monitoring is seamless. Operators gain insights via an interoperable, modular system that uploads data to the cloud for secure 24/7 access.
Why Monitor Water for Salinity with KETOS
Dissolved salts create salinity in water. The level of salinity is a contributor to conductivity. It’s also a method of controlling density and heat capacity along with pressure and temperature and, therefore, may be necessary for various industrial applications.
Water containing high salinity levels can become toxic to freshwater plants and organisms. It can also be unsafe as a source of drinking water (for both humans and livestock) and can kill crops if high salinity water is applied to plants during irrigation processes.
Salt can enter the environment when there is excess evaporation or water withdrawals. It can also affect surrounding surface and groundwater when salts are used as road de-icers and can appear at higher levels in wastewater, mining, and oil and gas discharges.
Since salinity can have a detrimental effect on crops, general vegetation, and aquatic life, it’s essential to monitor for salinity in water discharge before release back into to environment.
Test for one variable, or test for dozens at once. With KETOS, we make it easy to customize your water testing parameters to meet your operations’ exact needs.
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.
