Balances are laboratory equipment that require periodic maintenance to keep them in the best operating conditions. All this in order to guarantee the conservation of its characteristics. Balance calibration is widely recommended because it offers numerous benefits. The main one is that reliable measurements can be obtained, exact weighing processes that guarantee the reliability of the operations or final products.

Similarly, calibration saves waste costs, product withdrawals or processing because it helps identify in a timely manner those equipment that no longer work properly and facilitates decision-making regarding the resolutions to apply in such cases. Another advantage of doing balance calibrations is the detection of aging equipment. 


Types of Balances that a Laboratory may need

Analytical Balances

An analytical balance is a measuring instrument used to determine the mass of an object, it provides a high degree of precision in the order of 0.001 grams. Created in 1750 by the Scottish chemist Joseph Black, it is currently considered an important scientific instrument for delivering data with great accuracy. For its operation, it must be positioned under a specific environment and have controlled environmental conditions.

Analytical balances deliver very accurate measurements, since they employ an electronic system capable of measuring minute differences in mass. They are manufactured inside a transparent box provided with doors to isolate it from certain factors that may affect its operation. Therefore, due to the need for extreme precision of the measurements made, they must have specific rooms for their handling, with controlled environmental conditions.


Multifunction Weighing Scale

Electronic balances are highly valuable measurement equipment for chemical, analytical and formulation operations in industries and quality laboratories. They are used, like scales in general, to measure the mass of a body or substance, only since it is a precision scale, the measurement is exact. To weigh correctly on a laboratory balance, it is necessary to take into account the possible sources of error and act to avoid or minimize them.

Despite the perfection achieved in the manufacture of balances, the disturbing effects of the environment and poor practice can result in weighing errors. When you use these amazing tools, you have to be very careful because even if it is very easy to use devices, if you don't follow the steps in the right way, you increase the risk of making mistakes.
