KF Karl Fischer Moisture Analyzer
all three stacked

KF™ portable model

Easy to use and fully automatic, KAM KF Karl Fischer Moisture Analyzers make the determination of water content in crude oils extremely simple, fast and accurate. Whether you are using it in the lab or the field, the KAM KF is specially designed for oil-industry applications with a rugged exterior, extra storage and convenience all in mind. 

In most cases, KAM moisture analyzers process samples in less than 5 minutes, accurately determining the water content in crude oil samples for all custody transfer operations: production, pipeline, marine, or truck. They can also be used to analyze refined products, transformer oils, jet fuels, chemicals, and most other liquids.
