The KETOS SHIELD remotely monitors dozens of water quality parameters. Which one do your water operators test most often?
Find out how KETOS SHIELD solves for the monitoring of 30+ water testing parameters (including the Langelier Saturation Index) in real-time – while saving your organization costs with our $0-CAPEX subscription model.
Our award-winning intelligent water management solution, KETOS SHIELD, provides organizations worldwide with a real-time monitoring solution that can measure the Langelier Saturation Index (and 30+ other parameters). Monitor water testing parameters via an interoperable, modular system that seamlessly automates sampling and reporting.
Why Monitor Water for the Langelier Saturation Index (Calculated) with KETOS
The Langelier Saturation Index (LSI) is an approximate indicator of the degree of calcium carbonate saturation in water. LSI is calculated using other variables, including alkalinity, calcium concentration, pH, total dissolved solids, and water temperature. If the Index is positive, it indicates the water is over-saturated with calcium carbonate and can begin to form scales. If it is negative, the water is undersaturated and can become corrosive. If, on the other hand, it is near zero, it will neither form scales nor enable corrosion.
Since having too high of a concentration can lead to scale buildup, and too low a concentration creates the potential for corrosion, it’s essential for water operators to balance their LSI carefully. By carefully monitoring for spikes of positive or negative LSI levels, water operators can quickly begin to rebalance their water, thereby helping to reduce the need for equipment downtime or unnecessary damage to existing water infrastructure.
The Langelier Saturation Index is just one of many water testing parameters KETOS can monitor for – and that’s just the start of what our solution can do.
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.
