Xylem Lab TOC Solution Series

Monitoring organic contaminants in water and wastewater streams? Hear from our industry experts!

BOD measurements have for years been used to quantitate the amount of dissolved oxygen in a given sample that is available for aerobic biological organisms. The typical measurement monitors the changes in these levels over a period of time, typically 5 days, to help the analyst understand the quantity of bacteria in a given sample.

This lengthy measurement time can make it challenging to implement process control in wastewater treatment facilities.  Total organic carbon (TOC) is a technique that quantitates total carbon content quickly but is less specific than BOD measurements but has been shown to provide a good correlation for BOD. In this presentation, Dr. Ojo will cover the potential for TOC to be used for BOD measurements in the wastewater industry.
