Titer Point Determination
A titer point is the exact opposite of a melting point and is used to determine the purity of fatty acids. The temperature at which a fatty acid crystallizes is a characteristic of its purity. The titer device removes energy (not temperature) from the sample at a controlled rate. As the sample crystallizes, the heat of crystallization causes a temperature rise. This peak temperature is the titer point. The Infinity controller regulates the rate of energy transfer, stirs the sample, and measures the titer point with 0.10 ° accuracy, then saves the data to a corporate server.
