BOD meter OxiDirect
BOD meter to determine biochemical oxygen demand / direct collection of samples / precise and immediate display of the BOD values in mg/l / measurement interval selectable / data storage / comfortable handling / RS232 interface / eco- friendly 

The BOD meter OxiDirect is a device that is designed to determine the biochemical oxygen demand, called B.O.D. By means of the BOD meter the samples can be taken without further ado, and the BOD values are displayed in real-time speed, precisely in mg/l. Each BOD meter features, depending on the edition, six or twelve sample containers. The handling of the BOD meter is very comfortable and the measurement period is selectable for a period of 1 to 28 days. The amount of oxygen expended for the catabolism of organic substance in water samples is called the biochemical oxygen demand. By measuring the BOD, biodegradable substances in water can be determined as well. Therefore the BOD is an important factor to determine the effect of industrial waste and that from private household on the water quality in sewage treatment plants and their receiving waters. The BOD meter OxiDirect allows an exact and comfortable determination of the BOD, following the respirometric principle. Therefore the amount of oxygen that is already metabolized, can be calculated by recording the pressure reduction inside the sealed BOD meter. Due to the fact that the BOD value of the sample correlates with its pollution by organic substances, and by that the value might vary, the BOD meter is customized for the sample volumes listed below, depending on their measurement range. This  results in a total measurement range of 0 ... 4,000 mg/l. The BOD meter can be applied on sewage, for determining bilogical activity rates, on clarification plants, analytic laboratories, in research and development. If there are any questions about this BOD meter OxiDirect , please have a look at the technical specification below or call: UK customers +44(0) 23 809 870 30 / US customers +1-410-387-7703.. Our engineers and technicians will gladly advise you regarding the oxygen meters or any other products in terms of regulation and control, or scales and balances of PCE Instruments.

Measurement range and sample volume

The BOD level of a sample depends on its pollution with organic substances and can be extremely variable. Thus the BOD meter can be configured to the sample volumes below, depending on the measurement range.

Mechanism of BOD meter OxiDirect

During the BOD determination the bacteria inside the sample consume the resolved oxygen. That difference in oxygen of the water compartment is then replanished by the oxygen from the gas compartment of the sample container. The resulting carbon dioxide emerging from the metabolism inside the water compartment and given to the gas compartment enters a chemical reaction with the potassium hydrate solution inside the tubular of the BOD meter. By that it is withdrawn from the gas compartment of the sample container. The ultimate result is a decrease of pressure. That decrease of pressure is linear proportional to the BOD level and is measured by the BOD sensor. The BOD value is then immediately displayed in mg/l. 
The recorded BOD values can be displayed in mg/l anytime, without the need of any additional calculation. Thus e.g. a collection of data over a weekend can be evaluated in the following week without further ado. The measurement interval is eligible within 1 to 28 days. BOD measurements commonly cover a period of 5 days. Short-time measurements can be useful for the purpose of research. Measurements covering a period of time are e.g. demanded for OECD determinations.
