What You Need to Know

The Challenge

To reduce overall water consumption within industrial facilities (beverage bottling plants) through real time water consumption and usage monitoring/analysis, which can help enable water efficiency improvement opportunities.

The existing water meters care not interconnected and rely on manual meter reading to process data. As such, data collection, analysis and management have been difficult, inefficient and error prone, analysis can only be done on a daily basis at most, and delays in data collection have hindered investigation and rectification of water management issues.

Solutions can include but not limited to: sensors, meter-compatible solutions, predictive/AI and cloud-based technologies, IoT water monitoring and analysis networks, hardware-agnostic software services, and innovative SCADA systems.
