Coulometric Entry Level KF Titrator MKC-710B

Coulometric Entry Level Titrator MKC-710B
Coulometric Entry Level KF Titrator MKC-710B

Compact size, easy operation, low cost: The MKC-710B Karl Fischer Titrator is a compact, cost-effective solution for highly accurate water content determinations in products which contain small amounts of water. This model provides an extremely simple user guidance, a new comfortable approach for method development and editing and easy data exchange possibilities.

But there is much more: The MKC-710B can grow with your needs: By adding an MCU-710M colour touch screen control unit it can easily be upgraded to a powerful multi channel titration system, capable of running up to 4 titrations of any type (Karl Fischer volumetric, Karl Fischer coulometric or potentiometric titration) simultaneously.

Smooth method input and method transfer
The MKC-710B titrator offers a comfortable way to edit methods - without requiring a touch screen on the instrument itself: The methods are developed and stored on an USB memory stick by means of a personal computer and can easily be installed on one or several MKC-710B Titrators.

Fast measurements
A new acceleration amplifier provides faster electrolysis with a maximum electrolytic speed of 2.6 mg H2O/min. This shortens the time required for pre-titrations and sample measurements considerably.

Suitable for sticky samples
Easy maintenance when measuring samples which tend to contaminate the diaphragm as eg. oils: The MKC-710B can be equipped with a titration cell with a replaceable ceramic diaphragm.

Smooth data entry and control

Transmitting sample weights directly from a balance, inputting sample names with a barcode reader, entering sample codes with a numeric keypad: The MKV-710B titrator offers all the interfaces and features required for a seamless integration into your workflow.

The MKC-710B offers even the possibility to connect an Android device. The corresponding App can be used to start and stop titrations. It provides a real time display of the titration curves and facilitates the easy input of sample weights.

The AT-710 Titrator is compatible with a wide range of USB devices

A system which grows with your needs

Whatever your titration needs will be in the future – your initial investment will never be lost: The MKC-710B titrator can easily be upgraded to an MKC-710S or to an MKC-710M titrator by simply adding the corresponding MCU-710 control unit. It is thus possible to convert your stand alone titrator to a touch panel controlled titration system, capable of running up to 4 titrations of any type simultaneously – including coulometric Karl Fischer titrations and even potentiometric titrations.

The easy way to transfer your results directly to Microsoft EXCEL

The Data Capture Software is an easy to use and flexible solution to collect measurement results from different KEM instruments (Refractometers, Density Meters, Potentiometric or Karl-Fischer Titrators, Thermal Conductivity Meters) on a Windows personal computer.

  • Up to four different instruments can be connected to one single PC and be used simultaneously. Two of these instruments can be of the same model.
  • The results can directly be stored in EXCEL workbooks. The measured results are always available at a glance in a clear and concise manner.
    • As soon as a measurement has finished, the result appears in the corresponding worksheet.
    • The layout, order and the format how the results are stored in EXCEL can freely be adapted to specific needs.
    • Results can be automatically be processed by EXCEL macros as they are transmitted to the PC. Additional data (comments, sample data, etc.) can be entered at any time by means of the PC keyboard or a barcode reader.
  • All results can at the same time be stored in as CSV files.

  • Dot matrix printer with ink ribbon, prints on regular paper (width 57.5 ± 0.5mm).
  • 24 digits, 144 dots per line.
  • Automatic paper end detection - no loss of data!
  • 2 kB internal buffer memory. Advantage: Less time required per measurement, as the instrument does not have to wait until the results are printed out.

Solvent Pump

Automatic pump to fill and empty the Karl Fischer titration cell
Automatic pump to fill and empty the Karl Fischer titration cell

Automatic filling and emptying system for titration cell

Direct contact with Karl Fischer Reagents should always be avoided. This automatic filling an emptying system for the titration cell (ordering number 98-433-0135) protects operators from direct contact with toxic reagents and vapors. The pump is built into the magnetic stirrer. The connecting cable for the stirrer is included in the standard delivery.
