Digital scales, balances and moisture analysers are invaluable tools in the field of chemistry. Dosing is essential for chemistry: a chemical that is harmless or beneficial in certain quantities can become toxic or volatile when mixed with reagents. But chemistry is a field with a lot of variation, and it can be difficult to understand which weighing devices to use. In this post, we’ll go over the different types of scales, balances and moisture analysers, and where they fit in within the domain of chemistry.
When you’re working with high-accuracy lab equipment like semi-micro and analytical balances, one of the first things you learn is just how sensitive they are to outside forces like vibrations, air currents and even air temperature. To help ensure the integrity of weighing results, these factors must be mitigated. In this blog post, we’ll look at how to address the effects of even the most subtle reverberations with an anti-vibration table.
If you need a floor scale, this guide will help you understand floor scales, their main features and what to look for when purchasing one.
When choosing a lab balance and evaluating whether it fits your criteria, uncertainty is not as well-known as other factors such as readability or linearity, but it’s just as important. While uncertainty is used in a wide variety of sciences and variables, in this blog post, we’ll help you understand weighing uncertainty as it pertains to laboratory balances.
In an era of disposability and planned obsolescence, sustainability continues to take on increasing importance. As more companies implement reuse and refill programs, scales have a prominent role to play in helping conserve resources.
Weighing instruments are often used throughout agriculture, from the science of soil to weighing harvests or even monitoring livestock. In this blog post, we’ll explain how scales are used in farms and other agricultural settings.
