Customer application: Titrimetric analysis of fatty alcohols with a laboratory robot in shift operation


Industrial alcohols (e.g., fatty alcohols) and high-purity alumina are produced at the Sasol Germany GmbH plant in Brunsbüttel. Fatty alcohols can be produced from fats and oils. At the organic quality control lab of Sasol Germany GmbH, various wet-chemistry parameters of the raw, intermediate, and finished products such as acid number, saponification number, iodine number, peroxide number, carbonyl number, and hydroxyl number are determined and used for characterizing the fatty alcohols. The measurements are fully automated.
