BOD (Biochemical Oxygen Demand) Determination is a simple and easy way for monitoring the microorganisms' activity in water samples with extremely reliable results.
In particular, microorganisms present or inoculated in a water sample containing biodegradable organic substance, consume oxygen for their metabolic activity and produce a corresponding volume of carbon dioxide.
The carbon dioxide get absorbed by a strong alkali positioned in the neck of the bottle. The result of this process is a decrease in gas pressure. The BOD measure this change in gas pressure between the beginning to the end of the analysis and give a result expressed in mg/l .
Safe and Easy to use
Measurement on scales of 90, 250, 600, 999 and 4000 ppm BOD
Higher values can be measured by diluting the sample
Fits directly on the bottle containing the sample
Automatically stores 5 BOD values at 24-hour intervals
Enables analysis to continue over the weekend
Results directly readable at any time, even after five days
Direct readout in mg/l (ppm)
Compact stirring stations
Models with stirring stations offer VELP stirring quality
IP 54 protection against particle and liquid ingress
Class 3 IEC 1010 conformity
