Question
Do oxygen scavengers have an effect on 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 and does not present a problem for most users.
