Controlling Parameters in Water Analysis
Pure Water and Highly Purified Water
Pure water and highly purified water are crucial factors to production in numerous processes and industries and can be used as a raw material, auxiliary and/or for process operation. It is very important to pay particular attention to the quality of the water used as it is crucial to product quality and the safe operation of the production facilities. Therefore, continuous monitoring is essential - from an ecological as well as an economic point of view.
Process water is one of the most challenging for analysis instrumentation. Mostly this water is characterized by a certain purity, fluctuating loads, as well as very high salt concentrations. Since any disturbance in water-circuits can lead to an entire plant shutdown, resulting in huge costs, reliable and fast online water analyzers are an essential. Due to the diverse demands of various measurement challenges, application-specific analyzers provide huge advantages against standard analyzers that are used for...
Waste water, especially industrial waste water, is the most challenging water for instrumentation. Mostly, this water is characterized by highly fluctuating loads, very high salt concentrations as well as a high particle density. Hence, the accurancy and speed of measurements depends on the measurement system itself and the oxidation technique used. Obviously, application-specific analyzers provide huge advantages against standard analyzers that are used for all applications.
PeCOD® Case Study: 15 Sewer Use By-Law Monitoring: Batch Release Tracing City of Austin, Texas
Municipal wastewater treatment plants are designed to process a calculated range of organic loading in the raw influent. The calculation of this loading is based on characteristics of the plant’s region, such as population and industry type. Organic loading is most often quantified by the concentration of parameters such as Total Suspended Solids (TSS), Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD), Total Organic Carbon (TOC), and Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD). These parameters all sum a specific aspect of the organic...
Chemical Oxygen Demand and Biochemical Oxygen Demand results in 15 minutes - Case Study
Arauco, a Chilean pulp and paper company, has been using a PeCOD® Analyzer in full-scale operations since 2013. As a result, the company has reduced the use of hypochlorite in its bleaching processes with no loss of product quality, and decreased the amount of organics in its wastewater stream. The net result was a further reduction in chemicals and energy used in water treatment that saved the company US$3 million in the first year. Benefits: Fast & accurate results in 15 minutes Mercury &...
PeCOD vs Other Organic Pollution Testing Methods
Find out How MANTECH’s PeCOD measures up with other systems in organic pollution testing methods! In James Pickup, Rijkswaterstaat Internship Thesis, read how our PeCOD analyzer performs beside the Total Organic Carbon (TOC) method. Also learn how the PeCOD exhibits a strong correlation to the traditional chemical oxygen demand (CODCr) method, Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD5) method and improved sensitivity vs TOC in applications such as; Breweries, Pulp and Paper, Surface Waters and Treated drinking...

PeCOD® Analyzer oxygen demand analysis for source & treated drinking waters
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...
