Karl Fisher Titrator; The ugly Aquapal III that could…
Wow! This 10 year old Aquapal III (coulometric Karl Fisher Titrator) came in for service last month looking pretty rough. After an initial inspection of the unit we were able to determine only minor repairs were needed; Replacing the keypad, adding a new paper roll for the internal printer and replacing the detector electrode.
Since the unit had not been sent in for service before we also ran a factory “calibration service” on the unit. We tried to clean the unit but found it difficult to remove the urethane type substance from the main body. Overall we were able to fix the unit and put it back into service within a day or two. As the unit was being shipped out to the customer a couple of us remarked how ugly the unit looked – but how happy we were to see a unit like this take a licking and keep on ticking.
I think it would be fair to say that the Aquapal III coulometric Karl Fisher titrator is very suitable for rough environments.
The Aquapal III is manufactured and serviced in Fairfax, VA USA by CSC Scientific Inc. and distributed by Scientificgear LLC. Scientificgear also provides technical training and service support for the Aquapal III.
