It’s time to learn about another (relatively) obscure feature: the peak hold. Available on floor scales and analytical balances alike, it’s a versatile functionality that is not very well known. What does it do? Why is it useful on a weighing scale? How should you use it? Do you need it? Let’s find out.
Scales and balances can be helpful to ensure you’re adding the correct amount of ingredients to your recipes and formulations or for scaling up existing formulations. But rather than weighing just one ingredient at a time, what if there was a better, more efficient way? That’s where the scale’s formulation function comes in.
You might know about animal weighing, and that it’s sometimes called “dynamic” weighing. But why does it have another name? I s it ever used when weighing something other than animals? What does selectable digital filtering mean? How can you use it to get more reliable results? Let’s find out.
Weighing devices used for commercial or laboratory use are often designated within accuracy classes, which are usually referred to simply as classes. What do these classifications mean? Let’s take a look!
Sometimes, you just have to use your weighing equipment in the field. Whether you need to test materials on site to properly evaluate their properties or record field samples before they make it to the lab, there are times when you’ll take a weighing device outside. These tips will help you use your scale or balance on the field while keeping it protected from the elements and in good working order. Most field measurements are taken with compact scales, precision balances or bench scales, due to their portable design.
You’re browsing technical documents to see if a weighing instrument’s specs match your requirements, and you keep seeing “linearity.” What is linearity? Why should you care? What does it mean in the weighing industry? Why are there plus and minus symbols? We’ll answer your questions about linearity, and help you understand why it’s relevant.
