Measuring real-time COD is becoming increasingly important as we strive to take better care of the environment. In-line COD measurement can help you to trace leaks in the factory and to determine their possible causes. Moreover, this can save money during the production process as well as in the WWTP (less consumption of oxygen and therefore less sludge). The Rhosonics CCM 9585 COD Meter can measure the COD value of brewery wastewater streams.
Chemical Oxygen Demand is normally measured in the laboratory through chemical reactions with oxygen. Rhosonics offers a different way to measure the number of COD in real-time: CODeq (equivalent results, but using improved technology). In addition, we also use a combination of multiple ultrasonic technologies in a single sensor, in combination with a conductivity sensor, to determine CODeq and TSSeq: the CCM 9585. Factory-programmed calibration is an advanced regression model, based on the ultrasonic properties of a variety of the most common organic materials, such as, alcohols, sugars, and so on.
The CCM 9585 employs a hybrid ultrasonic sensor that measures a number of ultrasonic properties of water. In conjunction with the electrical conductivity, an ultrasonic equivalent value determines the COD value of the water.
