The KETOS SHIELD remotely monitors dozens of water quality parameters. Which one do your water operators test most often?
Measure dissolved oxygen in your water with KETOS. KETOS SHIELD gives organizations 30+ water testing parameters to choose from. Get results in real-time for timely, informed decision-making.
As an award-winning smart water management solution, KETOS SHIELD provides accurate monitoring for dissolved oxygen and 30+ other water testing parameters (including inorganics, heavy metals, and other environmental factors). Monitoring happens via an internet-aware modular system that uploads your data to a centralized operational database for easy 24/7 access.
Why Monitor Water for Dissolved Oxygen with KETOS
Dissolved oxygen is the quantity of oxygen present in water. It’s an essential measure of water quality and an indicator of a body of water’s ability to support aquatic life. If the oxygen levels are too low, organisms will not be able to survive, which may lead to mass die-off events for fish and other wildlife. Many factors affect dissolved oxygen levels in water, including temperature, salinity, water flow, and human-induced runoff.
However, specific levels of dissolved oxygen are vital in various industrial settings. For example, water treatment plants need to measure levels and ensure they stay within a certain threshold (or risk delivered water having a bad taste or odor). Water operators must also balance dissolved oxygen levels in wastewater and sewage treatment scenarios. Too low, and the bacteria cannot break down solids. Too high, and they risk a waste of energy. Alternatively, dissolved oxygen levels must be maintained at a very low level for boilers to work to prevent corrosion, causing inefficiencies.
Dissolved oxygen is also critical regarding water supplies meant for human consumption. While high levels of dissolved oxygen are significant for drinking water (improving taste), the higher levels also cause rapid pipe corrosion. Water companies typically use the lowest levels of dissolved oxygen, working to balance safety and taste with efficiency.
Therefore, measuring dissolved oxygen and balancing levels are integral to efficient, effective operations, no matter your industry or type of water infrastructure.
KETOS helps monitor for dissolved oxygen and 30+ other water testing parameters.
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.
