Precision and balances are almost synonymous with each other because after all, precision balances need to be precise and accurate. As a type of weighing instrument, a precision balance is defined as “a balance used to weigh quantities to a very precise number, usually up to one milligram”. Commonly referred to as “top loading balances”, this type of weighing device is available in a wide range of capacities. For research and laboratory requirements, a precision balance must have a readability of at least up to 0.001g. Although this may not be as accurate as state of art analytical balances, still they are more accurate than your regular compact or bench scale.
Precision balances have many uses throughout different industries. Some balances, like Adam Equipment EBL 104e Eclipse Precision Balance and the Radwag PS 360.R2 Precision Balance, have the high capacity and durability needed to test different materials with the readability necessary to get precise scientific results. They can be easily transported to the field or used in various testing centersother than lab workstations. Precision balances are commonly used in different laboratory applications and chemical analysis, and are a common sight in various types of labs, from advanced physics classes to biology research among many others.
The introduction of precision balances in the market has significantly improved the research and development industry and various manufacturers continue to introduce more innovative products to cater to this growing need. Precision Balances provide a wonderful solution both for general and advanced weighing requirements whether it is in a laboratory environment or on the field. Proper applications include but not limited to regular weighing, piece weighing, weighing analysis, percent weighing, animal weighing, dynamic weighing, accumulating/net total and density determination of solids and liquids.
Every model may have different features bust most precision balancesis designed with a well-built and easy-to-read backlit LCD display, highly readable primary digits, secondary digits and a capacity gauge. The LCD screen is user-friendly, with a sealed touchscreen keyboard and non-pressure backlit keys that can be used either by hand, with gloves or a stylus. The external menu-driven calibration offers superior weighing precision.
The advances in modern technology has enables precision balances to provide weight measurements that are as accurate and precise as possible. They provide a handy device for measuring the exact quantities of matter regardless of how small they are in a very safe and accurate manner.
