MANTECH is pleased to announce the release of the PC-BOD/Titrate Duo™. The PC-BOD/Titrate Duo enables laboratories to prepare and analyze samples for BOD5 then, with the simple change of a rack and probe holder, analyze different samples for pH, conductivity, alkalinity, turbidity and more!
BOD by Day, Titrate by Night
The PC-BOD/Titrate Duo is best suited for environmental laboratories with smaller to medium sized throughput. For example, a laboratory with 30 BOD bottles per day PLUS 20 samples per day for pH, conductivity and alkalinity. The Duo system is utilized more effectively, and it takes up less bench space than two separate systems. Because of the Duo advantage, it will be easier to justify a capital investment, and will deliver an even better return on investment.
Key Features and Benefits:
Follows US EPA, Standard Methods and ISO approved methods
Lower cost of training due to the DUO platform
Simple and easy switch between configurations
Common, dynamic rinse station for both platforms
Durable, reliable system, delivers results that stand the test of time
Innovative Autorun buttons simplify operation
Automated import and export from/to LIMS
Easily add more samples to the batch while running
Available with AutoMax™73 or AutoMax™122
Automated addition of dilution water, seed and inhibitor
Standard YSI probe and meter
Follows 21st edition of Standard Methods allowing seed to be added after 2/3 dilution water volume has been added, followed by filling to the neck with dilution water
Quick and easy sample set creation
Pre-defined sample sets including blanks, seeds and GGA’s
Capability to analyze BOD and CBOD samples in the same batch
Automates 5- and 7-Day BOD analysis methods
TitraSip Multi-parameter Advantages:
Autodilution capabilities for high concentration samples
Analyze pH, conductivity, alkalinity… all from a single sample pH/conductivity/alkalinity in 3 minutes or less per sample (total cycle time dependent on alkalinity concentration)
Rapidly generated results are accurate and precise
IntelliRinse™ system ensures system and probes are clean before moving to the next sample
PC-BOD/Titrate Duo - Rack Capacities:
1. The batch size for the BOD system may larger (e.g. 100 bottles in a batch). The software prompts the chemist when it is time to change racks to continue the batch analysis.
2. Additional titration/ion analysis racks are available, e.g.; 28x125ml for AutoMax73.
The powerful PC-BOD software is flexible enough to be setup to adapt to your protocol requirements, but simple enough to be used on a daily operational level by technicians.
