Wheaton Science Products 300mL BOD Bottles are designed for incubating diluted samples of sewage, sewage effluents, polluted waters, and industrial wastes to determine the amount of oxygen required during the stabilization of the decomposable organic matter by aerobic biochemical action. These bottles are ideal for the five-day BOD test as referenced in Standard Methods for the Examination of Water and Wastewater, 18th Edition, 5210B, 1992.
The 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 meters for BOD and dissolved oxygen. All of the BOD bottles have large, permanently screened-on marking spots. The numbered versions of the 300mL size bottles are supplied with bar codes for quick and accurate recording of bottle numbers. Manufactured from Type 1 borosilicate glass. Diam. x Height: 69 x 165mm.
