Titrators and Titration Systems

Titration is a method used to determine the amount of a specific compound, referred to as the analyte, contained within a sample material. With manual titration, the sample is added into a flask or crucible along with a solvent and a color change indicator. Then, another chemical liquid called a titrant is slowly added via a graduated glass burette until the analyte has totally reacted, which is indicated by a change in color. Automatic titration enhances the precision and repeatability of manual titration, cuts down on waste and boosts analyst productivity. Automatic titrators are made to drip titrant in very small, often microliter increments. With this enhanced precision, sample size can be refined to use less titrant, saving on costs.
