chemical oxygen demand monitoring News

  • New application notes published for the PeCOD Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) Technology

    Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) and Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) are important diagnostic parameters for the determination of water quality in natural waterways and waste streams. The standard BOD test requires five days to complete, and is therefore unable to provide continuous monitoring of organic load. COD is therefore often used for BOD screening. The PeCOD method for COD analysis is a new ...

  • Gas detection solutions for monitoring compressed breathing air

    At first glance the physiological demands of the firefighter, the scuba diver and the hospital patient have little in common. One is trained to deal with fire and rescue, one swims underwater and one is concerned with either regaining or improving their health. Yet all three depend to some extent on a safe source of compressed breathing air. In the case of the firefighter, portable breathing sets ...
