The KETOS SHIELD remotely monitors dozens of water quality parameters. Which one do your water operators test most often?
KETOS SHIELD can monitor for orthophosphates and an organization’s choice of water testing quality parameters in real-time. The device helps lower up-front costs with an industry-leading $0-CAPEX subscription model while removing the need for third-party lab analysis and on-site manual testing.
As an award-winning intelligent water management solution, KETOS SHIELD provides lab-accurate monitoring for orthophosphates and 30+ other parameters. Stay up-to-date on the latest water testing parameter readings of items such as heavy metals, inorganic materials, and various environmental factors). Monitoring is easy via an interoperable system that provides easy access to your data from any device (laptop, mobile, or tablet).
Why Monitor Water for Orthophosphates with KETOS
Orthophosphate is used to create a protective barrier within plumbing. Thanks to this barrier, it can reduce lead contamination in drinking water and is the industry standard when dealing with lead corrosion in municipalities worldwide.
The EPA recognizes orthophosphate as an effective additive in reducing lead levels. Additionally, under the US Food and Drug Administration, it is recognized as safe and is considered non-toxic. It is a food-grade additive that treatment plants run through their systems to create a coating inside service lines – including lead surface lines. As a barrier, orthophosphate is an effective corrosion control against lead contamination.
Therefore, it is essential to understand orthophosphate levels over time to better manage critical and vulnerable water infrastructure and protect it from corrosion or potential contamination.
Orthophosphates is also a crucial plant macronutrient in Agricultural applications and is commonly added through external fertilzers.
Test orthophosphate levels and a variety of other water testing parameters from one place via KETOS.
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.
