Laboratory balances come in a few different shapes and sizes, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. Since they’re highly specialised equipment, it’s important to know the distinctions between semi-micro, analytical, precision, and top-loading balances. This blog post will do just that, using our Equinox, Solis and Luna balances as examples.
Moisture analysis is a key component of quality testing in domains ranging from construction to food production. The pharmaceutical industry is no exception, but how moisture content relates to medicine might not be intuitive. In this post, we’ll explain why moisture analysis is so important for the pharmaceutical field and how a moisture analyser can help.
You’ve invested in a high-quality balance for your lab, and you want to do everything you can to ensure consistent, accurate results. An important part of maintenance is regular balance testing. What are the best methods to test your lab balance? Let’s find out.
When you think of knitting, you might imagine various tools, but you probably don’t expect a knitter to brag about their scale. Yet a reliable scale is a very useful tool in a knitter’s kit. In this blog post, we’ll find out why some people measure yarn with a scale, why it’s so practical and which scales are best for knitting projects. This can be helpful for people who knit and crochet for a living, or for people who are very passionate about their knitting hobby.
Digital scales, balances and moisture analysers are invaluable tools in the field of chemistry. Dosing is essential for chemistry: a chemical that is harmless or beneficial in certain quantities can become toxic or volatile when mixed with reagents. But chemistry is a field with a lot of variation, and it can be difficult to understand which weighing devices to use. In this post, we’ll go over the different types of scales, balances and moisture analysers, and where they fit in within the domain of chemistry.
When you’re working with high-accuracy lab equipment like semi-micro and analytical balances, one of the first things you learn is just how sensitive they are to outside forces like vibrations, air currents and even air temperature. To help ensure the integrity of weighing results, these factors must be mitigated. In this blog post, we’ll look at how to address the effects of even the most subtle reverberations with an anti-vibration table.
