The KETOS SHIELD remotely monitors dozens of water quality parameters. Which one do your water operators test most often?
With KETOS, operators can access and monitor their water quality by following 30+ water testing parameters (including nickel). Sampling happens from one device that plugs into existing infrasturcture. With KETOS SHIELD, oragnizations gain lab-accurate readings in real-time right on site.
Discover KETOS SHIELD, a multi-award-winning intelligent water management solution. With KETOS your organization gains access to water quality insights across 30+ water testing parameters. Testing happens on-site in real-time via a self-calibrating device that is cloud-enabled, allowing water operators to manage and monitor their water infrastructure from anywhere.
Why Monitor Water for Nickel with KETOS
Nickel is used in the manufacture of many alloys, stainless steel, batteries, textiles, et cetera. Industrial processes, such as metal manufacturing, waste incineration, and power plant operation, may also cause more significant nickel concentrations to be released into the environment. Since nickel is an ingredient in fertilizer, it can enter waterways and groundwater via surface fun-off.
While nickel is necessary for many organizations, it can be toxic and even carcinogenic if ingested in high doses. That said, the EPA currently has no direction around nickel enforcement. While regulated until 1995, nickel has been remanded back to EPA for further regulation. That doesn’t mean that monitoring for nickel isn’t necessary, and industries that deal with nickel in their water should prepare to take the required steps should remediation protocols change.
Test just for nickel, or test for dozens of variables at once. With KETOS, we make it easy to customize their tests to meet your precise needs.
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.
