Two predetermined temperature profiles are available for the COD Test Tube Heater: 105oC and 150oC. Total phosphorus and chemical oxygen (COD) digestions are carried out at 150 °C, whereas total nitrogen digestions are carried out at 105 °C. The test tube heater starts heating up automatically and maintains the temperature there until the countdown timer expires. The heating element will switch off and a buzzer will be heard when the timer expires. Despite a timed digestion, the HI839800’s exterior feels cool to the touch. For sample digestions, a full setup includes a test tube cooling rack and an optional lab safety shield.
