Single Use, Pre-concentrated Water Standards – Karl Fischer moisture content determination is an important laboratory method utilized in industries such as chemical and agrochemical, petroleum, plastics, pharmaceuticals, textiles, and food products manufacturing. Accurate and quantitative standards addition is essential in determining accurate results used to make processing decisions.

Karl Fischer Water Standards


FASTRATE™ Tablets for Titre Determination – FACET LLC has developed a line of calibration standards for use in Karl Fischer titration, FASTRATE™. The FASTRATE™ standards are single use tablets, pre-concentrated to specific moisture contents for instrument calibration and titration of water in almost any substance. More precise and quantitative standards addition is achieved by the elimination of syringes, injections, and the use of bulk powder delivery into the vessel. FASTRATE™ replaces these methods with a single hand transfer of a tablet through the sample port. Differences in technique between analysts are minimized and instrument calibration is simplified and more repeatable because transfer time and exposure of vessel contents to foreign moisture are reduced.

FASTRATE™ can be formulated and pre-packaged to a specific moisture concentration thus reducing lengthy and variable sample preparations.

FASTRATE™, being a solid dosage form, is ideal for fully automated titration methods and also meets the moisture content required by regulatory guidelines.
