Mechanical Balances and Scales
Adam Equipment offers mechanical balances for applications requiring fast, easy weighing without electricity or battery power. Several kinds of mechanical balances are widely used through the world. The triple-beam balance is one of the most popular types, as it is simple to use and transport. It features a weighing pan and counter weights, and offers speedy calibration using the weights that frequently are provided with the balance. Triple-beam balances are commonly used in classroom settings to weigh powders and bulk ingredients.
Another type of mechanical balance is usually referred to as a weighing scale. This balance requires a person to stand on a platform and slide several weights across a marked beam until the beams are level. These balances are generally found in physician's offices, school infirmaries, fitness centers, gyms, and health clubs.
