0.1mg readability, 4 place or 0.0001g readability balances with capacities up to 520g with or without internal calibration

















What are Analytical Balances?

Analytical balances are highly sensitive lab instruments which accurately measure mass in the sub-milligram range  to a high degree of precision . Analytical Balances have a weighing capacity in the range of 100-500 g and a readability of 0.1 mg – 0.001 mg


Analytical balances have a draft shield or weighing chamber in the form of a transparent enclosure so that air currents and dust do not affect the Analytical Balances Operation. Analytical balances should only be used by trained personnel.


Analytical Balances differ from precision balances in terms of readability. Analytical balances have a have a higher readability (0.0001g)  versus precision balances (0.001g) and as a result tend to be more expensive.


Analytical Balance Applications include;


What industries are Analytical Balances used in?


Analytical Balances are utilised across a large variety of industries.  They are commonly used in laboratories due to the level of precision required in scientific experiments. In the lab, Analytical Balances can be used for weighing medicine, chemicals and other hazardous compounds, density determination and pipette calibration. Analytical Balances can also be used in Universities or by veterinarians for measuring compounds.


Where should I keep Analytical Balances?


These Analytical Balances detect very fine increments and so should be kept in a separate interior room where there are few disturbances as small vibrations, temperature fluctuations,  breezes, spills and general foot traffic , as these can all skew results. Analytical balances benefit from low-impact environments. Anti vibration tables and anti-static mats may be used to ensure weighing accuracy. Analytical balances must be carefully maintained and regularly calibrated.


How do I use an Analytical Balance?


Factors affecting Analytical Balances

As Analytical Balances are so precise (up to four decimal places), they are very sensitive to external disturbances in the environment and also by the way they are installed and handled. This affects readability and could potentially give inaccurate results.
