Hydro Connect

Hydro Connect is a cloud-based Internet of Things (IoT) platform that gives chemical providers and end users increased visibility into their operations, optimizes production, reduces costs and increases customer satisfaction. Built on the Microsoft Azure platform, Hydro Connect utilizes data generated from the Central Dosing Systems to provide valuable, actionable insights along with simple observations and recommendations. Additionally, clients can make configuration changes without traveling to sites.

  • Alarm reporting: Proactively view alarms to rapidly eliminate abnormal conditions that drive profit loss.
  • Production: Eliminate the use of out-of-date paper logs to document the weight or number of loads run in your facility.
  • Chemical usage: Simplify and improve the accuracy of your billing procedures with metered usage reports on chemical product and formula.
  • Cost: Quickly access a snapshot of the chemical cost by formula to actively manage and improve unprofitable formulas or accounts.
  • Observations/recommendations: Eliminate hours of data manipulation and analysis. For a minimal charge, a Hydro expert will review the monthly data and provide recommendations to help reduce rewash and optimize cleaning results.
  • Real-Time dashboard: View washer status, alerts and key productivity metrics in real-time to proactively pinpoint inefficiencies while reducing rewash.
