BOD-Station and BOD-Station Pro: Provides real-time assessment of Biological Oxygen Demand within water systems, informing on the impact of biodegradable substances

resizedBOD Station

The Chelsea Technologies Group's BOD-Station and BOD-Station Pro systems allow water process engineers to assess real-time levels of BOD in water systems. This is achieved by detecting UV Tryptophan fluorescence, which recent publications have shown correlates with the standard 5-day Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD) test.

BOD-Station comprises a CTG UviLux fluorometer and a Watchkeeper wall mounted data display and logger. CTG’s UviLux fluorometers detect UV fluorescence with industry-leading sensitivity and selectivity and have been optimized for minimal interference from water turbidity.
