Volumetric Entry Level KF Titrator MKV-710B

Volumetric Entry Level Titrator MKV-710B
Volumetric Karl Fischer Titrator MKV-710B

Compact size, easy operation, low cost: The MKV-710B Karl Fischer Titrator is a compact and cost-effective solution for a wide range of routine water content determinations. With its exchangeable burette unit and automatic evaporator control it is well equipped for routine water content determinations in a wide range of different products. The MKV-710B provides at the same time 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 MKV-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.

Suitable for different types of Karl Fischer reagents
The automatic solution impedance compensation function of the MKV-710B (patent pending) reliably prevents over titration without needing to adjust the polarization voltage according to the type of Karl Fischer reagent used.

Possibility to add a second burette
The MKV-710B can be equipped with a second burette. With an additional burette the MKV-710B can perform automatic Karl Fischer back titrations and can therefore be used to analyse samples which release the water only very slowly without need to heat the titration cell.

Smooth method input and method transfer
The MKV-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 MKV-710B Titrators.

Versatile data export
The MKV-710B titrator offers convenient possibilities for measurement data acquisition and storage whether or not the instrument is permanently connected to a personal computer. Titration results can conveniently be stored as pdf files on an USB flash drive (memory stick).

Details

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 MKV-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

Substantial accuracy and reliability enhancement

High resolution burettes, small dead volumes: The MKV-710B titrator comes with all the prerequisites that ensure highly accurate results: The burette drives have a resolution of 20'000 steps. No more classical turning valve connected to the burette – a newly developed valve mounted directly on top of the burette offers substantial advantages: Less connecting tubes, which means less cross contamination when replacing the reagent and less room for air bubble formation.

A system which grows with your needs

Whatever your titration needs will be in the future – your initial investment will never be lost: The MKV-710B titrator can easily be upgraded to an MKV-710S or to an MKV-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.

IDP-100 Printer

Dot matrix ink printer for GLP compliance.

  • 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 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.
