The KETOS SHIELD remotely monitors dozens of water quality parameters. Which one do your water operators test most often?
KETOS SHIELD covers various water testing parameters, including mercury and heavy metals. Monitoring happens in real-time and can lower up-front costs via an industry-leading $0-CAPEX subscription model.
As an award-winning intelligent water management solution, KETOS SHIELD provides timely monitoring for mercury and 30+ other water testing parameters (including inorganics, environmental factors, and nutrients). Monitoring variables is easy via our interoperable, modular system that uploads data to the cloud for secure 24/7 access from anywhere.
Why Monitor Water for Mercury with KETOS
Mercury is a highly mobile and extremely toxic element that can bioaccumulate in fish, which can put humans and animals that eat them at risk.
The Clean Water Act regulates monitoring mercury in effluent, waste, and ambient waters to protect human populations and the environment. The EPA also issues mercury guidelines and national standards for wastewater discharged to municipal sewage treatment facilities and surface water. There are also specific guidelines across other industries, including electric steam utilities (coal, oil, natural gas) and their resulting waste (for example, coal ash ponds, a by-product of coal-powered plants).
The EPA, under the Safe Drinking Water Act, has set enforceable regulations for mercury at 0.002mg/L. Public water systems are under strict regulatory scrutiny to ensure mercury levels do not rise above this two ppb threshold.
With mercury being such a toxic element and compliance in place to ensure its careful regulation, it’s crucial to have trusted solutions in place that can prevent contamination events and ensure high levels of mercury do not enter the surrounding environment.
Get a device that covers multiple water testing parameters at once. With KETOS, your organization can watch levels of mercury and other heavy metals like lead, selenium, copper, and more from one convenient, user-friendly dashboard. Choose from 30+ water testing parameters, set threshold alerts, and build a 24/7 snapshot of water quality across operations.
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.
