Oxygen Consumption Testing
We offer oxygen consumption rate tests that determine oxygen consumption rates of
mining waste materials through both abiotic and microbial mediated sulfide
oxidation. The constant volume respirometers we utilise (WTW Oxi-Tops) rely on the measurement of pressure
drop within a sealed vessel of constant volume using a manometer. The drop in
pressure can be inferred to the consumption of oxygen through respiration and /
or oxygen consumption by some other chemical reaction.
