Hubgrade combines digital tools and the expertise of Veolia employees at the service of operational and environmental efficiency. Its specificity: capitalizing on human competency and digital power to process data in order to provide our customers with a continuous supply of optimized solutions adapted to their priorities.
Associated with Hydrex® chemical solutions, Hubgrade allows users to optimize chemical treatment results and protect assets through enhanced supervision.
Leveraging the performance of your chemical programs
For any water system, measuring performance is key in order to optimize chemical consumptions and prevent any damage and efficiency loss. Hydrex chemical solutions offer a range of controllers that allows for real-time monitoring of key performance indicators (KPIs), calculation of out of compliance conditions, and corrective actions in both water conditions and chemical feed.
When combined with Hubgrade digital services, Hydrex Controller remotely connects with the customers to provide information and give access to a range of features dedicated to enhancing the chemical treatment performance even further.
Particularly suited for cooling towers, boilers and wastewater applications, the key benefits of Hubgrade for Hydrex are:
The detection of the early-warning signs of operation deviations so as to mitigate risk for regulatory compliance and to maximize your equipment uptime.
A continuous performance optimization to ensure operational cost control and long-term durability of your asset.
A support adapted to all the levels of the organization which allows each team member to stay focused on their key tasks and the day-to-day management and planning of their activities.
A contractual KPI dashboard (for multi-site follow up, for example), enabling benchmarking between comparable sites.
