WEBINAR: Sample Preparation for Increased Accuracy in Karl Fischer Titration

The live webinar date has passed. Fill out the form at the bottom of the page to watch the recorded presentation.

The quality and stability of products across all industries depends on accurate moisture analysis. For the best data, these measurements require evaluating water bound to both the surface and internal structures. Sample preparation is an often overlooked, critical step for accurate total moisture measurements of raw ingredients or finished products. Integrating simple sample preparation techniques, like solvent extraction or homogenization, can increase the accuracy of your results by making total moisture available for the titration. Once accurate KF measurements are made, you can leverage this data to implement spectroscopic techniques that replace sample preparation with a simple scan.

Watch this webinar to hear technical expert, Kerri-Ann Blake, explain how different sample preparation techniques work and are used to improve Karl Fischer titration accuracy. Applications scientist, Kyle Hollister, will then describe how to combine this data with near-infrared spectroscopy (NIR) to get accurate moisture without the time required for sample preparation or the need for expensive reagents. Both experts present several case studies demonstrating optimized moisture analysis on samples from the pharmaceutical, food and petroleum industries.
