Precise and accurate results of the determination of water contents are important for the quality of raw materials used in production processes and also for the finished products. The main challenge is how to produce reliable and comparable results by choosing the right application method, instrument and reagents for your Karl Fischer Titration. Whether you are determining the water content using the volumetric Karl Fischer titration or using a coulometric Karl Fischer instrument, there are many aspects of the applied measurement method that require careful consideration to ensure that the results measured are accurately giving the water content in the sample. In this webinar we will view both sides: the instrument adjustment and maintenance and the method and reagents used for the Karl Fischer Titration By viewing this presentation you will learn... How to do a precise titer determination and instrument check and how you can detect and avoid influences on your titration results. What needs to be considered when testing samples (e.g., influence of side reaction or insoluble substances.) Many practical hints for daily water determination.
