The EZ-BOD Meter is programmed to provide sludge stability lower than U.S. 503 regulations. The oxygen uptake rate (SOUR) program reports milligrams of oxygen per hour per gram of biomass to determine the stability of digested sludge for landfill or futher processing.
This is performed by placing a diluted sludge sample in the instrument's reactor bottle. An integrated, self-calibrating DO probe is then inserted and instructions for conducting the test appear on a liquid crystal display. The meter monitors DO as the test proceeds, automatically graphs and stores the data, calculates the test results and prints out a report.
The EZ-BOD Meter is preprogrammed to perform SOUR tests (U.S> 503 Sludge Regulations); biotreatability evaluations (ASTM Method 4478); BOD estimation tests; and dissolved oxygen measurements. It can be used in the field with rechargeable batteries or as a benchtop instrument.
