  • Beyond Karl Fischer: Titration Methods

    Almost every industry is concerned about water concentration levels in some way. Food and pharmaceuticals automatically come to mind, but fuel, explosives, agri-chem, and polymer processing businesses (to name a few) all rely on moisture content as a critical quality attribute. Karl Fischer titration (KFT) is the best-known technique for determining water levels in samples, and it is supported ...

  • Measurements of moisture contents of vegetable oils for fuel use: short communication

    Measurements of the moisture content of a number of plant oils potentially suitable for use as biodiesel have been measured with a Karl Fischer titrator. The oils studied were rapeseed oil, corn oil, spent rapeseed cooking oil, sunflower oil, olive oil and hempseed oil. Trends in moisture content with such factors as degree of prior exposure to the atmosphere are identified and discussed. ...
