Adam Equipment offers mechanical balances for applications requiring fast, easy weighing without electricity or battery power. Several kinds of mechanical balances are widely used through the world. The triple-beam balance is one of the most popular types, as it is simple to use and transport. It features a weighing pan and counter weights, and offers speedy calibration using the weights that frequently are provided with the balance. Triple-beam balances are commonly used in classroom settings to weigh powders and bulk ingredients.
Another type of mechanical balance is usually referred to as a weighing scale. This balance requires a person to stand on a platform and slide several weights across a marked beam until the beams are level. These balances are generally found in physician's offices, school infirmaries, fitness centers, gyms, and health clubs.
