Abstract:

A Breadboard Electrochemical Organic Content EOC Analyzer has been designed and developed for on-line monitoring of organic solute concentrations in ozonated effluents. The performance of the Analyzer has been improved through the addition of the intermittent flow accessory that employs in situ electrochemical reduction of dissolved oxygen in order to measure EOC values without interference from dissolved oxygen. The accessory allows accurate and precise EOC measurements to be made at electrode potentials where the EOC response to organic solutes is sensitive, but which normally are subject to interference by oxygen. The operation of the accessory and its checkout tests are described. Results and conclusions are presented. Author
