Question
Will Oxygen Scavengers have an effect on my BOD or COD measurements?
Summary
Oxygen Scavengers in BOD/COD
Answer
Oxygen scavengers are likely to appear directly as COD. However, some oxygen scavengers are active only at certain pH or temperature levels. Oxygen scavenger concentration is usually low compared to COD or BOD levels, so this should not present a problem for most users.
