The determination of Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) is widely used in municipal and industrial laboratories to measure the overall level of organic contamination in wastewater. The contamination level is determined by measuring the equivalent amount of oxygen required to oxidize organic matter in the sample.
CHEMetrics’ leakproof reagent vials contain premeasured solutions of sulfuric acid and potassium dichromate. To perform the COD determination, the analyst simply removes the Teflon-lined screw cap from the vial, adds sample to the vial, and replaces the cap. The vial is then heated for two hours at 150°C in a standard digestor block. Once digestion is completed, results are obtained using any photometer that accepts 16-mm diameter cells. CHEMetrics COD vials can be directly used in our V-2000 multi-analyte photometer, CHEMetrics’ single analyte COD photometers, as well as in many Hach1 spectrophotometers. Built-in Hach COD methods and calibrations can be used without the need for a new calibration. A generic calibration equation is included within the CHEMetrics™ kit for use with other spectrophotometers.
