Aqualabo BD600 BOD Analyzer

Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD)
BOD – biochemical oxygen demand – is an expression for the quantity of oxygen required for biological degradation of organic matter in a waste water sample. BOD measurement is therefore used as a basis for the detection of biologically degradable organic matter in water. The difference between BOD and chemical oxygen demand (COD) is that COD additionally registers biologically non-degradable organic matter. BOD measurement is an important measurement of the effects of domestic and industrial waste water on sewage plants and outflow points.

Respirometric BOD measurement using BD 600
The AQUALYTIC® sensor system BD 600 is a 6 sample system that allows precise measurements of BOD based on the manometric principle. Manometric respirometers relate oxygen uptake to the change in pressure caused by oxygen consumption while maintaining a constant volume. Due to the modern integral pressure sensors, it is not necessary to use mercury for the measurements
