Lean Practices are becoming ubiquitous, and laboratories are no exception. Balances and their accessories are a staple of lab equipment, and their proper usage and placement can go a long way to make sure your lab follows Lean Lab Practices. In this post, we’ll explain Lean Lab Practices and give you a few tips that can help make sure you follow them.
A balance is an integral component of lab work, and choosing the correct equipment is essential to obtaining efficient performance and accurate results. There are many considerations in selecting the right lab balance for the job.
Lab balances are very delicate instruments, and it’s important to make sure there are as few disturbances as possible. Factors like air currents, temperature changes or electronic equipment can affect results. In this post, we’ll take a look at the impact static electricity can have on lab balances, and how to mitigate them with an ionizer.
Setting up your balance correctly helps ensure reliable results and a stable work-space. Incorrect setups can create errors and force users to calibrate the balance more often, which can waste time and money.
Scales are used in many facets of agriculture and animal husbandry. In this post, we'll discuss how they're used during the production, sales, and consumption of hay. Buyers and sellers alike can reap the benefits of weighing hay in sales transactions and when measuring animal feed.
Monitoring weight is an essential part of fitness, and even more so for professional athletes. Some sports, such as boxing, have strict weight categories the athletes must maintain in order to fight. In other sports, weight can be an indicator of muscle gain (or loss) and can ensure the player is healthy enough to handle the rigorous training they undergo. In this post, we'll explore how the CPWplus series can be used in sports to weigh athletes.
