Oxygen Consumption Testing

Oxi-top Pressure vessels
Oxi-top Pressure vessels

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.
