“The peCOD L100 unit provided similar CODcr results in minutes allowing us to make process improvements quicker.”

– Associate Process Engineer, Irving Paper Limited

“It (MANTECH Color Application) worked GREAT!!! Just a little FYI for you my first PT was reported at 59.4 with a true value of 60.0! and the second was was reported at 66.9 with the true value at 66.9!!!!! Thank you soooo much for your help!”

– Tammie Heslin, Environmental Specialist, Tampa Electric Company

“We received it (PeCOD)…I was able to get it up and running last week on my own. I was able to watch all the YouTube videos and read most of the manual for it. I ran a dozen samples through it last week and it looks to be running perfectly. To be honest it has outperformed our expectations. I have ran a couple samples through it that we have also sent to our local lab (accredited) to verify it’s performance, which it did against the lab using the standard SM 410.4 analysis method. This (PeCOD) will without a doubt prove to be invaluable during plant upsets where we fear steam condensate/ boiler feed water contamination from our amine gas sweetening process. This will save us hours in analysis time which is huge for an operating gas processing facility.

– Jason, Lab Coordinator, Petrochemical Plant

“My MANTECH Titration Systems are very good, reliable and they work every day with very little maintenance.  Technical support is excellent.”

– Hemendra Patel, Laboratory Supervisor, City of Houston

“All is going well with the PeCOD; our results have been pretty stable and steady. For our needs the instrument works well and results are obtained instantly (vs. 3 hours later by dichromate COD)”

– Michelle-France Manuel, National Research Council Canada – Montreal

“We had a successful week of peCOD testing validated against the CODcr method, and the significant improvement in our operations by the fast peCOD results convinced us to stop the 3-4 hour CODcr test, not to mention eliminating the hazardous waste”

– Jason, Lab Coordinator, Liquefied Natural Gas Plant

“PeCOD® is surprisingly simple to use!”

– Sommer Lee, Water Treatment Process Engineer, Region of Niagara

“CWRS has been experimenting with PeCOD® applications since 2011. These applications have included monitoring of wastewater in Northern communities, and source and treated drinking water monitoring. Most significantly, the PeCOD® has been able to give our group additional insight into drinking water biofiltration performance by quantifying organic matter removal across biofilters that was largely unrealized by measuring dissolved organic carbon alone. PeCOD® is now being integrated into many of our projects that require a measurement of natural organic matter.”

– Centre for Water Resources Studies, Dalhousie University

“We have purchased a MANTECH system to automate our suite of pH, Conductivity and Turbidity analysis. From industry feedback we knew that this suite is notoriously difficult to automate and the MANTECH system presented a new and viable solution to the problem. Camlab, the UK representatives have helped us from the very outset with the financial justification and there on with the development of our methods and engineering support. The staff, from product specialist to the engineers at Camlab have understood the constraints of our methodologies and have worked with us as a partnership to deliver the high performance we need.”

– A. Rodrigues, Affinity Water

“The [BOD] system gives us a safer environment and equipment, increased capacity, the ability to automatically deliver the dilution water, updated software and better usage of analyst time.”

– Nancy Coglan, Supervising Chemist, City of San Diego

“I am PeCOD® user, I am happy using your product. I would like to congratulate your team for the approval of PeCOD® method in Canadian MOE. I am happy with your technical support. Thank you.”

– Gunawan, Qatar Chemical Company

“I’m familiar with the systems from my time at Other Commercial Laboratories so I know they [MANTECH] outperform the other systems.”  

– Luke, Intertek Commodities, Minerals

“MANTECH instruments used by ALS have proven to be robust analytical solutions, generating accurate and precise results with a low per sample operating cost.”

– Tim Kilmister, General Manager AsiaPac, ALS Life Sciences

“The MANTECH automated titration and multi-parameter system is running beautifully, I have reduced my chloride backlog to manageable levels and have had no issues to deal with. I figured out how to import my sample numbers and get the results from the export file for quality control calculations and uploading into our LIMS system. I have also used the scheduling feature to start the titration with success. We are very happy with its performance and can accept the speed with which it works.”

– Rick, Lee County Environmental Lab

“Since early 2017, a Massachusetts Water and Energy Testing Facility has been utilizing the On-Line MANTECH PeCOD® for detection of low levels of chemical oxygen demand in a nearby river. The automated functionality of the instrument makes it user-friendly, as it requires very little attention and operational parameters can be modified with ease. Measurement with the PeCOD® is rapid, giving accurate results, and is sensitive enough to detect the occurrence of various events. The PeCOD® provides empirical results not requiring correlation or calibration against separate laboratory techniques. It has proven to be a reliable tool and will be adopted for use in future projects.”

– A Massachusetts Utility

“During our laboratory audit, our auditor recommended a MANTECH [system].”

– Laboratory Manager, Uranium One

“Thank you for your follow-up. One of our analysts who used a PC-Titrate in a previous position will be calling you with questions. It looks like if we buy the PC-BOD/Titrate Duo, we can do all the analyses with 1 person and it takes 2 analysts now. We really need this.”

– Laboratory Manager, California Utility

“The support was excellent from all vendors but the software and hardware support teams for the MANTECH PC-Titrate system were local and are marketed and supported by the same company. The precision was superior on the PC-Titrate system as was the multi-valve cleaning system, which included more titrants, and purging of titrant lines. In conclusion the PC-Titrate system met our needs most closely and was the best long-term choice for our solutions analysis.”

– David, EMD Chemicals

“I ran a MANTECH autotitrator for hardness and alkalinity at my previous job. At the time (and it still may be) it was the largest set up in the US. We did our best to run that instrument as hard as we could. As long as we did a yearly PM and kept user error out of the way we were analyzing 150+ samples per day with it. It was one of the more reliable pieces of equipment I ever used.”

– David Smith, Technical Specialist at Environmental Express

“When I was at DNV Petroleum services we have Mantech instrument that is very useful, and software is also good, thank you sir.”

– Joseph, Petroleum Geologist, Intertek

“Speed of (PeCOD® COD) results creates a more efficient process and really drives clean compliance for us which is critical.”

– Ian Culverwell, General Manager of Clean Harbors Guelph Facility

“Aurora Water (Aurora, CO) has been analyzing low level chemical oxygen demand (COD), at source and drinking water levels, using the photo-electrochemical PeCOD® instrument as part of Water Research Foundation Project #4555. We are excited to have a rapid method available to determine low level COD, and look forward to further understanding how the information that is gathered may help with operational decision making and treatment optimization.”

– Pamela Benskin, Water Quality Analyst IV, Aurora Water (City of Aurora, CO)

“Our Annacis Research Centre researchers have remarked that PeCOD® produces results very quickly, which allows them to complete research more rapidly. They have also been impressed with the fact that it doesn’t use harmful chemicals, reducing safety risks to researchers and to the environment. They have also found that the PC Titrate equipment is very effective. It gives extremely accurate results, is well designed, and works automatically, saving researcher time. We are thankful to the University of British Columbia and MANTECH for the donated equipment, and look forward to its role in advancing research in the region.”

– Jeff Carmichael, Director, Annacis Research Centre

“I worked with three multi-parameter systems running applications such as pH, conductivity and alkalinity. It was wonderful being able to set up my run and then move on to other tasks around the lab. One of the systems often ran for ten hours straight (approximately 750 samples). The MANTECH systems were easy to use and very durable.”

– Holly, Laboratory Analyst from Ontario, Canada

“The PeCOD® is very user friendly and accurate, Though for me the best aspect of the PeCOD® is how fast the test is! This revolutionary piece of equipment is a fast but powerful way of COD analysis, giving consistent and quality results every test!”

– James Bissell, Bridgnorth Aluminium

“The Mantech PC-BOD automated instrument allows an accurate and efficient method of being able to process BOD and CBOD. Analysts do not have to worry about the accuracy of the reagents being pumped. This frees up time for analysts to prepare samples and perform other work while the instrument is running. I have found it especially handy with a large sample loads. It is also customizable to fit your needs as a laboratory and can be as simple or complex as you need it to be. These features make it very user friendly. The most impressive part of Mantech is the irrefutable customer service. If there is ever a question, problem, or any form of maintenance, these are the people I would want helping me.”

– Laboratory Supervisor, North Carolina Utility

“I have been operating a PC-Titrate system for the past 12 years and would recommend it. We replaced the 10 year old PC-Titrate with a new one in 2010 but even at that time the 10 year old system was still consistently producing reliable results without issue. The system we use is set-up for pH, conductance, total alkalinity and Gran alkalinity. The system is very reliable and requires very little other than standard maintenance, replacing electrode, changing fill solution, cleaning pumps, etc…. The maintenance of the instrument is straightforward. The pump and valve can be removed for cleaning, reassembled and the instrument set-up for analysis within a few hours.”

– Laboratory Technologist, Environment Canada

“I prefer the term PeCOD wizard lol! Seriously though, it is a very straight forward machine, plus with all the reference material, it’s hard not to make it work. :D”

– Thaila Riden, Organics Compliance Officer and Sustainability Champion, Beau’s All Natural Brewing Company

“What I like most about the [BOD] system is that it allows me to have the freedom to do other things.”

– Laboratory Supervisor, North Carolina Utility
