The Lovibond ® Thermoreactor is necessary to heat Tubes for certain tests. Heating these tubes is required for the chemical digestion of the samples.
It is used in the photometric determination of:
- Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) at 150°C
- Total Organic Carbons (TOC) at 120°C
- Total Phosphate at 100°C
- Total Nitrogen 100°C
- Total Chromium at 100°C
The required temperature and reaction time are programmed using the membrane keypad on the front of the reactor. The unit works at three different temperatures (100 / 120 / 150°C) and three different pre-set reaction times (30 / 60 / 120 minutes). When digestion is complete, the reactor automatically switches off and LED indication and short beep alarm.
The RD125 reactor is fitted with 24 holes for 16 mm diameter vials.
With the voltage switch on the back, you can switch from 220 V or 110 V.
