MANTECH’s chemical oxygen demand (COD) analyzer is breaking new ground in the science of monitoring source and treated drinking water. In addition to providing 15-minute COD results and biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) estimates, MANTECH’s PeCOD® Analyzer measures natural organic matter (NOM) in raw and treated drinking water. The NOM Analyzer™ — which is the drinking-water application of MANTECH’s novel PeCOD® COD-testing system — does what no other technology has done before. It quickly and safely measures oxygen demand and the associated oxidative changes in organic matter in raw and treated drinking water, at low concentrations and without the use of hazardous chemicals.

Problem: Industrial manufacturers face stringent regulations for discharging wastewater to the environment and municipal sewer systems. Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) is a primary concern for many discharge limits, as wastewaters high in BOD can have adverse impacts on the aquatic environments by leading to oxygen depletion. In some cases, as a means to supplement BOD, it is also desirable to monitor chemical oxygen demand (COD) of industrial effluents. Both of these tests, are time and labour intensive reducing the frequency at which they can be measured for a given effluent.
