Digital Titrator Kits  

Digital Titrator Kits

Hach's Digital Titrator makes field titrations a practical reality. Results are comparable to buret titration, with none of the problems associated with glass burets.

  • Many procedures usable for EPA reporting
  • Self-store titrant cartridges reduce waste
  • Cartridges can be easily switched in field

Drop-Count Titration Kits  

Drop-Count Titration

Drop count procedures provide a low-cost method for titrimetric determinations. Typical accuracy is ± 1 drop for titrations requiring up to 20 drops and ± 5% for titrations requiring over 20 drops.

Instrument-Based Kits  

Instrument-based Kits

Colorimeter-based kits provide the highest level of accuracy and repeatability. Pre-programmed for easy use, Hach's single-parameter field colorimeters provide years of reliable service.
