COD Digestion Apparatus is suitable of COD method for monitoring waste water influent and effluent, industrial process water, and more. This instrument is used by Pollution Control Labs. Outer cabinet made of mild steel duly coated. Double wall construction with insulation for minimum heat losses increases the efficiency of the system. Aluminium Block with holes (Dimension 40mm Dia x 80mm Depth) is used to hold 15 nos. COD tubes (Optionally for 6 tubes). Aluminium Block is heated to maintain temperature up to 180 deg.C. Solid state Digital Temperature Controller, appropriate heater & insulation selection assure uniformity in all the samples. Selectable timer up to 120min. with alarm is provided to set the digestion period (Refluxing). After digestion, analyse the sample with either colorimetric or titrimetric method. Supplied with Glass wares.
