Application Note: Analysis of Quality Parameters in Oils and Fats
22 January 2019
Oils and fats are characterized principally by their state of unsaturation determined by Iodine value (IV) and %Trans fat content. The MB3600-CH10 Analyzer comes pre-calibrated to measure these two key properties. Analysis of additional properties, not included in the basic analyzer configuration, can be provided on special request. Examples of other properties are Moisture content, Melting Point, Cloud Point, Saponification Number, Acid Value and Free Fatty Acid (FFA) content. It is also possible to provide oil degradation parameters such as Peroxide Value or Anisidine Value. Another common request is to develop a custom calibration for low IV in order to provide higher accuracy for specific products.
