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
- 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.
