Anyone here perform titrations as part of their job?

Found 29th Nov 2009
Hi all.

For my coursework I need to research how titrations are performed in industry, such as equipment used and how measurements are made more precise as well as how they are performed accurately on a large scale. We have been making standard solutions and doing titrations in class with beakers, burets and pipettes where there is an element of error involved so we need to compare the difference.

Have been searching around the net and have picked up a bit of info, would really appreciate anyone's inside knowledge!

Thank you x

can anyone help, please?

Have a look at the Mettler Toledo site, they make automatic titrators and a lot of companies use them as they are much quicker and give traceable results for GLP (Good Laboratory Practice) or GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) verification.

Any local companies likely to use this method? You could contact them and ask for info.

I couldn't find anything on the internet, I am in East London/Essex :thinking:

I gave in my first draft this morning but feel I need to expand on it and explore further so am grateful for any help

I worked at a pharmaceutical qc lab before and I'm afraid even "industry" still has to use manual titration too. But most of time, we have auto titration that could check the end point where colour/pH suddenly change etc. I am not sure about the large scale as I never need to come across with it but I would say for industry if they need to neutralise something in large quantities, then they will simply do it in a small scale test first and then multiply up the quantity. Of course, they will need to take samples to test again after it is mixed.

Thank you for taking the time to reply.
Would you mind naming some of the equipment used so I can look into it, such as the equipment that performs the titration automically?
Would you have used Class A glassware as opposed to the Class B we use in class?

Any info GREATLY appreciated :-D
