BOD BOTTLES OVERVIEW
Used for incubating diluted samples of
sewage, polluted waters, and industrial wastes to determine the amount
of oxygen required during the stabilization of the decomposable organic
matter by aerobic biochemical action.
Wheaton polyethylene cap prevents
evaporation of the water seal during incubation.
The 300 ml
capacity bottles are recommended for the 5-day B.O.D. test as referenced
in Standard Methods for the Examination of Water and Wastewater, 18th
Edition, 5210B, 1992.
These B.O.D. bottles have a specially designed shoulder radius that
sweeps all air from inside the bottle during filling. The
interchangeable stoppers have a tapered bottom that also prevents air
entrapment. The bottles have a flared mouth to form a water seal around
the stopper that prevents air from being drawn into the bottle during
incubation. The stopper joint is compatible with the probes of the
leading B.O.D. and D.O. meters.
All of the B.O.D.
bottles have large, permanently screened-on marking spots. The numbered
versions of the 300 ml size bottles are supplied with bar codes for
quick and accurate recording of bottle numbers. All of the bottles are
manufactured from Type I borosilicate glass.
