Over deze norm
This standard specifies an electrochemical method for the determination of dissolved oxygen in water by means of an electrochemical cell which is isolated from the sample by a gas permeable membrane. Depending on the type of probe employed, measurement can be made either as concentration of oxygen in milligrams per litre, percentage saturation or both. The method measures oxygen in water corresponding to 0 percent to 100 percent saturation. However, most instruments permit measurement of values higher than 100 percent i.e. supersaturation. The method is suitable for measurements made in the field and for continuous monitoring of dissolvedoxygen as well as measurements made in the laboratory. It is the preferred method for highly coloured and turbid waters, and also for waters containing iron and iodine fixing substances, all of which may interfere in the iodometric method specified in ISO 5813. Gases and vapours such as chlorine, sulfur dioxide, hydrogen sulfide, amines, ammonia, carbon dioxide, bromine and iodine which diffuse through the membrane, may interfere, if present, by affecting the measured current. Other substances present in the sample may interfere with the measured current by causing obstruction, or deterioration of the membrane or corrosion of the electrodes. These include solvents, oils, sulfides, carbonates and algae. The method is suitable for natural, waste and saline waters. If used for saline waters such as sea waters, or estuarine waters, a correction for salinity is essential.
