With cutting-edge features packed into a compact design, this titrator delivers accurate results and requires less space in the lab. Get accurate water content determination at the push of a button. Designed for the modern lab, this karl fischer titrator is the perfect fit for your testing environment.
- Compact design will save space in the lab without compromising your results.
- Durable heat and chemical resistant body.
- Sealed solvent system helps to keep water out of the system, while giving you minimal exposure to the reagents.
Dynamic Titrant Dosing
The dynamic titration speed allows for timely and accurate titration results by relating the amount of iodine generated to the mV response from the Karl Fischer reaction. This provides for a larger generation of iodine near the beginning of a titration and more precise pulses near the titration endpoint.
Drift Rate Compensation
The HI934 automatically adjusts the titration calculation to account for the effects of any ambient humidity entering the titration cell. This provides a more accurate result by correcting for water not present in the actual sample.
Coulometric Titration System
Purposeful Generator Design
Two styles of generators are available for the HI934; a fritted design ideal for samples with low water content and high accuracy demand; and a fritless generator allowing for easier cleaning and maintenance.
Precision Iodine Generation
Our dosing algorithm allows for an extremely small amount of iodine necessary for the Karl Fischer reaction to be generated electrolytically using a pulsed current up to 400 mA, delivering iodine accurately and precisely.
Titration & Solvent System
Chemically Resistant Vessel & Tubing
The glass titration cell and PTFE tubing is designed to withstand the harsh solvents and reagents involved in Karl Fischer reactions.
Sealed Solvent System
Ground glass joints completely seal the glass titration cell, minimizing exposure to ambient humidity, keeping the system dry, and reducing reagent consumption while saving time between titrations. Solvent may be exchanged in a matter of seconds with a quick fitting adjustment.
High Efficiency Desiccant
High efficiency molecular sieve desiccant helps maintain low and stable drift rates within the titration cell while preventing the ingress of ambient humidity into the sealed solvent system.
Interface & Display
Interactive Color Display
A large, color LCD screen clearly shows the chosen titration method along with results, units, total water, drift rate, and mV value.
Detailed Titration Graphs
A real-time titration curve can be displayed during each titration; this feature is useful when new methods are tested or when a procedure requires optimization.
Simple & Quick Navigation
Virtual key selections present on the display allow for simple and quick navigation between screens and menus without getting lost in a nest of information.
Data & Storage
Customizable Titration Reports
Each titration report is fully customizable so users can ensure they are storing and filing the appropriate data required for their application and procedures.
Flexible GLP Management
All necessary GLP (Good Laboratory Practice) information can be recorded with each sample including: sample identification, company and operator name, date, time, and electrode ID codes.
Effortless Data Transfer
Data can easily be transferred to a USB flash drive or PC with the Hanna HI900PC application software. The USB port allows for the transfer of titration methods, titration reports, and software upgrades via USB flash drive.
Connectivity & Functionality
Configurable Balance Interface
Sample size may be automatically entered from any laboratory analytical balance with a RS232 serial output saving time and labor.
Users can print reports directly from the titrator using a standard parallel printer. An external monitor and keyboard may be attached for added versatility, as well as an analytical balance for automatic sample mass entry for titrations.
Methods of Analysis
The HI934 can store up to 100 user-defined or standard titration methods. Each method may be customized and optimized for performance based on application and user requirements.
Titration Method Support
Onsite installation, training, and customization is available from one of our Applications or Service experts. Hanna offers continued support via phone or webinar for any questions you might have along the way.
Adaptable Standard Methods
Our technical experts can program and customize standard methods developed by such affiliations as ISO, ASTM, AOAC, AOCS, EPA, and more directly onto your titrator. Ask our Sales Consultants which standard methods are possible with our HI934 Karl Fischer system.
