  • 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 ...

  • Lab Gas Price Bulletin November 2018

    A major gas company has increased the gas price for hydrogen and nitrogen gases in North America. This will have a knock-on effect for laboratories who buy nitrogen to supply their instruments. Labs can avoid the gas price increases by replacing their bulk supply with a nitrogen generator. On the 1st of October Air Products increased gas prices for liquid nitrogen, as well as increasing ...
