The Lovibond sensor system BD 600 is a 6 sample system that allows precise measurement of BOD based on the manometric principle. Manometric respirometers relate oxygen uptake to the change in pressure caused by oxygen consumption while maintaining a constant volume. Thanks to the modern integral pressure sensors, it is no longer necessary to use mercury for pressure measurements.

The Lovibond BOD measuring system BD 600 is therefore calibrated for the various sample volumes and the corresponding measuring ranges listed in the table below.

The BOD values are stored automatically in the sensor memory in regulary intervals and can be called up on the large-format display at any time without the need for time-consuming conversion using factors. The measurement period is user-selectable between 1 and 28 days to suit the application. While short measurement periods are useful for scientific applications, standard BOD measurements tipically extend over a period of 5 days and manometric determination of OECD, for example, generally takes place over a period of 28 days.
