Features of titrators
Although there are many different types of titrators available, you will find that most of them have the same or very similar features. They will all have a burette, along with a titration beaker, and processor for evaluating and storing the data. The processor is also the element that is responsible for the control of the device. These machines have simple to use control panels, but thanks to the power of the processors, they can offer some complex calculations and storage capabilities.
How titrators work
A titrator makes the process of titration much easier to do. You can add the solution of unknown concentration to the device, and then to add the solution of the known concentration, or the titrant, to the device. You will continue to add to the solution until it reaches neutralization. You will know it is neutralized because the color will change. The automated titrators that are available today are able to take care of all elements of the titration process, including the addition of the titrant, monitoring, endpoint recognition, data storage and calculation, and the results.
