It is essential to know the functions offered by the scales that suit the requirements of the laboratories, and for this, it must take into account the design, size, calibration capacities, weighing capacity, weighing units (grams, kg and / or lbs.), margin of error and battery durability. Based on this, the analytical balance meets the requirements within the laboratories, offering more accurate results, and easier reading.

This tool, specializes in its accuracy, and sensitivity, becoming an instrument that provides data and results, measures with real values, avoiding the smallest possible error.

Finally, the analytical balance offers functional characteristics, because it has sensors to measure the weight, visible on a well-lit screen, and at a size that facilitates vision.

Types of Scales a Lab May Need

Analytical Balances

An analytical balance is commonly used to determine the mass of an object, it provides a high degree of precision in the order of 0.001 grams. For its correct operation, the analytical balance must be positioned under a specific environment and have controlled environmental conditions so that it does not suffer alteration in the absolute value of the weighing.

Applications of an analytical balance

Among the main applications of analytical balances we find:

  • Preparation of standards.
  • Formulation
  • Determination of density.

Precision Balance

Sensitivity is determined by the ability to accurately determine results for very low or low values, and can be expressed as the difference between extreme values ​​of several measurements of the same magnitude.

A measuring instrument is more sensitive the smaller the quantity it can measure. In the case of the balance, the sensitivity can be defined as the variation that the equilibrium position experiences when a 1 mg overload is placed on one of its pans. The sensitivity of a balance depends on its capacity, that is, a balance designed to weigh kilograms will hardly have the necessary sensitivity to have reproducibility in milligram weighings.
