Abstract and Summary
An automatic titration system (ATS) controlled by a microcomputer was developed for potentiometric or pH titrations. The titrator is equipped with a piston-type glass buret which is operated by a stepping motor driven by computer-generated pulse. The droplet volume of titrant is 0.00211 ml per pulse which enables very accurate titration. The titration rate is controlled by regulating the intervals of pulses according to the potential changes accompanying the progress of titration. The point giving the maximum pulse interval is detected automatically as the end point. Accordingly, it is not necessary to present the potential or pH value of the end point. Sample beakers are sent in turn with an endless mode. As examples of practical application of ATS, saponification value, amine value, acid value, total chlorine content, and chloride ion content were determined. The ATS makes it possible to contribute not only to the improvement of precision but to the simplification of analytical procedures in fats and oils chemistry.
