Camlab now offers automated water analysis solution for BOD by day and titration by night

Camlab, one of the UK’s leading scientific suppliers and service/repair agents, has been appointed by Man-Tech Associates to represent and support the company’s range of automated water quality analysers in the UK.

The PC-BOD™ system, which is designed to automate the 5- and 7-day BOD analysis method, simplifies the complex BOD measurement procedure required by many discharge consents to analyse the quality of wastewater.   The system is designed to automate dilution water, seed and inhibitor addition as well as rinsing procedures, critically the system simplifies the whole measurement process for BOD5.

Featuring a durable autosampler, the PC-BOD™ system provides a range of rack configurations to suit the users sample requirements all designed around the standard 300ml BOD bottle.  The rinse pump, liquid level sensor control and BOD probe stirrer control are built in to a compact module.  The pumps are designed to deliver accurate volumes at a speed which ensures sample trays can be completed in reasonable time-scales, a liquid level sensor ensures that no samples are overloaded.  The PC-BOD™ oxygen measurement is delivered by a standard BOD probe allowing for easy replacement when required.

The PC-BOD™ enables laboratories to conform to regulatory Norms such as Standard Methods 5210B, 21st edition; Standard Methods 5210B, 20th edition; and DIN EN 1899-1.

Camlab can also configure a number of variants of the PC-BOD™ technology to address differing laboratory operating requirements.  The cost-effective PC-BOD™ Mini system, an 11 bottle capacity solution, is ideal for laboratories needing to prepare and analyse samples for BOD5 at a rate of five to 50 samples a day, for three, five or seven days per week.  The key element of all of the PC-BOD™ systems is the software used for the BOD calculation, the Man-tech BOD software offers a significant improvement on the built in calculation in many commercial dissolved oxygen meters.  The software and autosampler setup are seamlessly linked in one package on the control PC.

Offering a simple upgrade path, Man-Tech’s PC-BOD/Titrate Duo™ enables laboratories to prepare and analyse samples for BOD5 then, with the simple change of a rack and probe holder, analyse different samples for pH, conductivity, alkalinity, turbidity and more.  The system allows organisations to carry out BOD sampling and titration with a single integrated system.  The PC-BOD/Titrate Duo is best suited for environmental laboratories with smaller to medium sized throughput.  The duo system can be purchased as an upgrade to an existing PC-BOD™ or PC-Titrate™ system, ensuring upgrade flexibility whatever the initial purchase.

David Miller, Business Development Manager of Camlab Ltd said: “Mantech’s PC-BOD™ technology offers an automated BOD analysis solution that is not only simple to operate but is also scalable.  BOD measurement is inherently a complex procedure but Mantech’s intuitive software capabilities help to simplify the overall process and make it possible to readily add an automated water quality analyser to the same sampler at a later date if and when required.  The degree of scalability makes the Mantech technology a highly cost-effective water quality analysis package.  The PC-BOD™ Mini is the perfect size for the smaller laboratory and offers an even quicker return on investment for laboratories that run only a few BOD samples per day.”
