Remote Monitoring Chemical Service
We at Chardon can utilize technology to provide our chemical treatment service with the use of remote monitoring to continue to provide reliable water treatment service.
Monitoring Systems Using Cloud-Based, Online Software
Through REMCOMM internet communications connected to your Advantage MegaTron XS or MT Controller, a live constant feed of reporting can display a variety of water quality measurements. With the installation of this controller and internet card, WebAdvantage cloud-based software comes included. This software includes measuring levels such as conductivity, pH, Oxidation-Reduction Potential (ORP), chemical feed, and much more to provide reliable information to prevent shutdowns and equipment issues like scale, corrosion and microbial growth.
These systems also can send alarms to on-site personnel and Chardon to warn of chemical feed problems, spikes in water usage, or a variety of other out of spec issues. All of this information can be monitored using any computer, smart phone or tablet that is connected to the MegaTron controller.
This becomes especially useful in cooling tower systems regarding the control of growth of Legionella bacteria. This allows our technicians to monitor systems in between service visits to ensure that the treatment program is operating as it is designed. Through the WebAdvantage portal, biocide feed levels can be altered remotely rather than a second visit from a technician to follow Legionella best practices.
The WebAdvantage portal also houses all reporting history to monitor trends throughout different peak seasons, start-ups and shut downs, and to show effects of the chemical treatment program over time on water usage.

Chardon is committed to providing proper water treatment to your cooling tower systems and boiler systems, making sure that during these challenging times your equipment is operating efficiently and safely.
