Food analysis: new, compact titrators from Metrohm
04/01/2016

Compact standalone 916 Ti-Touch titrator

The titrators from the Ti-Touch family are compact analyzers offering the maximum in the class of stand-alone systems for routine analysis in the food industry.

Several different titrimetric determinations are used in food analysis. Apart from acid-base titrations, this also includes precipitation titrations as well as complexometric and redox titrations, e.g.:

  • Citric/tartaric acid in lemonades and soft drinks
  • Chloride determination in meat and cold cooked meats
  • Determining calcium in milk products
  • Sulfur dioxide in wine
  • Water content determination in coffee, confectionery, etc. 
The Ti-Touch titrators are suitable for all of the titrations required in the food industry – not only potentiometric determinations but also applications of the Karl Fischer method for water content determination.

The following models are available for selection:
The Ti-Touch titrators are operated using a touch screen. Comprehensive user administration is available, which, among other things, allows up to 14 favorite icons per user to be saved to the start screen which can be touched to start the respective method.

Thanks to the intelligence of the various components, operating errors are virtually impossible. All system components are identified and registered automatically once they are connected; when the titration method is started, not only the titrants and their titers, but also the electrodes and their calibration data are all verified. Plain text messages will be displayed to the user in case of an error.

The instruments have an Ethernet interface which can be used to implement TCP/IP communication. This means that raw data and tamper-proof PDF reports can all be saved directly to the network or be printed out on the network printer, without an additional PC. The USB interface allows various input and output devices to be connected, e.g., balances, barcode readers, printers, or USB flash drives
