Laboratory Balances

Balances are laboratory equipment that need constant maintenance to keep them in the best operating conditions. All this in order to guarantee the preservation of its full functions.

Balance calibration is widely recommended because it offers numerous benefits in terms of the results obtained.

The main one is that you can obtain reliable measurements, exact weighing processes that guarantee the reliability of operations and end products for which measurement is required.

Similarly, calibration allows to improve processes because it helps to identify in a timely manner those equipment that no longer works correctly and facilitates the collection of decisions regarding the resolutions to apply in such cases.

How to use an analytical balance correctly?

The balance is a piece of equipment that measures the mass of a specific body, providing accurate data about its weight. Among the many existing models, the analytical balance that has a high power of rigor stands out, since with it great precision can be obtained. The analytical balance is a measuring instrument that offers us a high degree of precision, but requires experience and skill from the operator. For its operation, it must be positioned under a specific environment and have controlled environmental conditions so that it does not suffer any alteration in the absolute value of the weighing.

Differences between analytical and electronic balance

The balance is an instrument whose purpose is to measure masses of bodies in greater or lesser quantity. They are characterized by their accuracy, their precision and their sensitivity. The first quality refers to the property that any physical instrument possesses to supply the result of a measurement with a value coinciding with the true one; this implies that the error is as small as possible. The term accuracy is often taken to mean precision. Sensitivity is determined by the ability to accurately determine results for very small values, and can be expressed as the difference between extreme values of several measurements of the same magnitude.

Balance: precision and accuracy

The balance is a piece of equipment that measures the mass of a specific body, providing accurate data about its weight. Among the many existing models, the analytical balance that has a high power of rigor stands out, since with it great precision can be obtained.

Precision is the number of decimal places used to express what is measured, while accuracy indicates the degree of approximation between the measured value and the actual value to be measured. On the other hand, if we refer to a series of measurements, precision is the degree of grouping or repeatability of the measured values or dispersion of the results, while the accuracy represents the degree of approximation between the mean of the measured values and the real value.

Our Best Selling Scale

The model of this analytical balance has an electromagnetic sensor. In addition, it also has an LCD backlight display that makes viewing values much easier and clearer. In addition, it is operator friendly with direct weight and directly reads the weighing results. This model is very smart, making it the right outfit for you. One of its most important characteristics is that it increases and returns to zero within the entire weighing range. Also, it has an overhead screen.

Sliding weight scale balance

It has two known masses that can be moved on scales, one with a graduation

Laboratory analytical balance

It works by comparing masses of known weight with the mass of a substance of unknown weight

Laboratory top plate balance

This type of balance has a weighing pan placed on the top of the instrument.

Laboratory replacement balance

It is a single pan scale. An unknown mass is placed on the weighing pan


What is your ideal laboratory balance?

There are countless models, so it is normal that you do not know which laboratory balance to buy that suits your needs. At Kalstein, we test them to find what you're looking for.

Errors when using a balance

Electronic balances are highly valuable measuring equipment for chemical, analytical and formulation operations in industries and laboratories.

Balances in the Kalstein Laboratory

The most common types of laboratory balances and scales are ultramicrobalances, microbalances, semi-microbalances, analytical balances, and precision balances.

Care and correct use of a balance

Balances are instruments that are used to measure the mass of a body or substance or also their weight, in laboratories it is of utmost importance

Do you know how an analytical balance works?

The balance is a laboratory instrument that measures the mass of a body or chemical substance, using the force of gravity acting on the body as a means of comparison. The word comes from the Latin terms:

  • bis which means two
  • linx which means dish.
