Karl Fischer titration

Mettler-Toledo V30S Compact Volumetric KF Titrator and Mettler-Toledo C30S Compact KF Coulometer, and Stromboli sample changer.

The Karl Fischer platform allows determination of the water content of organic solvents and inorganic solids, in the concentration range between 10 ppm and 100%. For samples with a low water content a coulometric Karl Fischer apparatus is used, whereas for samples with a high water content a titrimetric Karl Fischer apparatus is used. The Stromboli sample changer enables up to 14 samples to be titrated in unattended operation. The samples are automatically transferred into a temperature controlled oven from where the evaporated water is transferred to the titration cell via an applied gas flow.
