The Acid Number Titrator is designed for the determination of free fatty acids in oils and fats. Its operating mode complies with IEC 62021-1:2003 and ASTM D664-95 standards for mineral oils.
The acid number (or "neutralization number") is used as an expression for the freshness of fats, e. g. in the food industry. For the measurement of free fatty acids, a volumetric titration method with potassium hydroxide is used.
Once the oil sample was solved in the reagent, the titration with KOH is started. Then the sample weight is entered manually into the software. Besides, the titration speed is precisely adapted with regards to the slow reaction rate. Our special software controls this titration process reliably.
The titration is performed automatically to the endpoint of measurement. At the end of the measurement, results are calculated in mg KOH/g oil, or any other result units if desired.
Type of result:
mg KOH/g oil or using the
0.01 ... 250 mg KOH/g oil
0.01 mg KOH/g oil
