The items required for volumetric titration are a Karl Fischer titrant and methanol or a dehydrated solvent (used to dissolve or disperse the sample).
AQUAMICRON® offers a wide range of products suitable for measuring the moisture content of various samples at every levels. Users can select a solvent that is suitable for the samples based on the following tables.

  • When using a moisture vaporization method, mix Solvent GEX with propylene glycol(PG) in a 3:1 ratio (e.g. 90mL of GEX + 30mL of PG).
  • When using Solvent KTX, it will be needed to make proper adjustments to the parameters. Please contact a manufacturer of the instruments.
  • An addition of 3g of salicylic acid enables the time for dehydration to get shorter at the first measurment in combined use of 50mL of Solvent SU.
