Here's an example of a school lab titration.

And here's an example of an industrial titration.

Industrial
(From Copybook)

Various titrants are pumped from the reagent bottles into the stirred sample.

The sample changer automatically rotates to the next sample when a titration is finished.

The titration curve and calculation results are sent to a computer, and any desired information can be sent to a printer.
