BOD Measurement Including Sample Pipetting, pH Setting- and Aeration of the Sample

The most flexible Robotic BOD platform available today for fully automatic BOD analysis.

The analyzer automates the following steps:

  • Sample pipetting
  • Bottle (de) capping
  • pH setting of the sample
  • The addition of dilution water
  • Nitrification inhibitor (ATU) and seed
  • Sample aeration
  • Homogenization
  • Measurement of dissolved oxygen
  • Calculation of the BOD result according to the required regulation

The analyzer matches an extensive range of pH probes/meters, BOD bottles and incubator trays and is compatible with all current models of oxygen meters & probes. The analysis is carried out in accordance with all (inter) national regulations such as EPA 405.1/ISO 5815-1/ EN-1899-1/2, Standard Methods 5210 B, DIN 38409 etc. as well as customer specific methods.

The automation of the labor-intensive BOD application with Skalar’s SP2000 platform can save up to 96% of operator time and provides the required consistency for the application.
