Why You Should Use a Scale to Weigh Yarn

Why You Should Use a Scale to Weigh Yarn

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.

Mass Measurements in Chemistry

Mass Measurements in Chemistry

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.

For Analytical Balances, There are No “Good Vibrations"

For Analytical Balances, There are No “Good Vibrations"

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.
