KETOS SHIELD marries self-calibrating hardware with cloud-enabled software to deliver a solution that allows water operators to monitor for total ammonia nitrogen (and other variables) in real-time, all while lowering the traditional up-front costs associated with testing water parameters.
Introducing KETOS SHIELD, a multi-award-winning intelligent water management solution. Organizations can leverage real-time automated monitoring for total ammonia nitrogen and 30+ other water testing parameters (such as inorganic materials, heavy metals, and other environmental factors). Water operators can connect to their data via an internet-aware modular system that makes decision-making more accessible than ever – on-site, in the office, or on the move.
Why Monitor Water for Total Ammonia Nitrogen with KETOS
Ammonia is naturally occurring in water. It’s produced by organic matter decay and can enter water supplies via human activity, including petrochemical, plastic, and pharmaceutical production, as well as via fertilizers.
When present in water at relatively low concentrations, ammonia poses no threat to humans, however, it can be an irritant to eyes/nose and can affect the taste and odor of water. In drinking water, monitoring for ammonia is essential as it can react with chlorine and decrease disinfection efficiency. For this reason, drinking water should not contain more than 0.2 mg/L.
In wastewater, ammonia needs constant monitoring to prevent effluent from damaging local aquatic ecosystems. It can become toxic to marine life when present in larger quantities (0.5 mg/L and above).
Monitor for total ammonia nitrogen and 30+ other water testing parameters with KETOS.
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.
