Pressure-based BOD measurement updated for labs and treatment plants

BOD instrument

WATER analysis specialist Lovibond Tintometer has announced its latest instrument for BOD measurement for wastewater samples. Measurement employs the manometric method. Manometric respirometers relate oxygen uptake to the change in pressure caused by oxygen consumption while maintaining a constant volume. Thanks to modern integral pressure sensors, it is no longer necessary to use mercury for pressure measurements.
The new system has been specifically designed for use in laboratories, treatment and purification plants with automatic BOD measurement at customizable intervals (over 2 to 28 days). Results are continuously monitored and displayed on the large screen with easy-to-monitor graphical representation of measured values. Flexibility is paramount with individual programming of each of the six sample bottles and data transfer via USB or SD Card. Designed to work with the Lovibond® TC Series of thermostatically controlled incubators, the remote control functionality enables adjustments to be made even through a closed glass door.
