    A Burette is an essential laboratory instrument, commonly used in the titration process for quantitative analysis in many industrial chemical tests where solutions of known concentration are used to find the concentration of unknown solutions.

    The Electronic Burette or E-Burette has an electronic display, electronic control panel and motor-controlled piston movements that eliminate all problems of the digital burette which dispenses manually. The accuracy of an electronic burette is higher than a digital burette due to motor controlled dispensing. This motorized system eliminates human errors in the titration/dispensing process, making the titration more precise.
