Q: What Is an Analytical Balance?
A: An analytical balance, often referred to as a lab balance are designed for measuring mass with a high degree of accuracy with readabilities ranging from 0.01mg (semi-micro) to 0.0001g. Designed for precise weighing of small samples, analytical balances are used in a range of industries such as science laboratories, pharmaceuticals research and development and higher education institutions.
Q: What Precautions Should I Take When Using an Analytical Balance?
A: Whilst your analytical balance will have been calibrated initially by the manufacturer, before you start to use your analytical balance it is extremely important to calibrate it due to its high levels of sensitivity. A change in location can massively affect levels of accuracy due to gravitational pull. If your analytical balance is moved, then it should always be recalibrated to ensure results are always of the highest of accuracy. Adam Equipment offer a range of both external (with weights) and internal calibration models that allow for quick and efficient calibration. Wearing gloves is also highly recommended when using an analytical balance as oil and dirt that may be found on your hands could potentially compromise a sample or the accuracy of tests weights used to manually calibrate a balance which could lead to incorrect and inaccurate readings.
Q: Where Should Analytical Balances Be Used?
A: Due to analytical balances being extremely sensitive, the external environment can majorly affect the results and the validity of data that is gathered, such a breeze from an open window or draft. Therefore, analytical balances should always be used in a dedicated room with as few disturbances as possible. Breeze shields and anti-vibration tables will also significantly reduce vibration and environmental disturbances whilst providing a level and stable surface to use your analytical balance on. Adam Equipment’s range of analytical balance come with either a removable breeze shield or attached chamber. Ensuring stability and using your balance in the right environment means there will be less interference to contend with and ultimately lead to more reliable results.
