Use the following decision tree to help narrow your equipment selection.
What type of laboratory balance do you require?
Precision Balances are those with a readability typically between 1 mg (0.001 g) and 1 g. Precision lab balances offer the widest range of weighing capacities with maximum capacities usually around 70,000 g.
Please choose one of the following capacity ranges.
1 - 500 g
This group of small capacity precision balances has a range between 1 g and 500 g
500 - 20,000 g
This group of precision balances has a capacity range between 1 g and 20,000 g. Most manufacturers offer a precision balance in this range.
20,000 - 70,000 g
Higher capacity precision balances with a weighing capacity of 20,000 g to 70,000 g. Most manufacturers offer a precision balance in this range.
Analytical balances are those with readability between 0.01 mg (0.00001 g) and 0.1 mg (0.0001 g). Analytical lab balances offer the second widest range of weighing capacities usually around 500 g.
Choose one of the following capacity ranges.
1 - 250 g
With a weighing capacity range of 1 to 250 g, this group of analytical balances will fit your needs for small analytical measurements. Analytical balances are some of the most common types in the lab, so you should find a large selection to choose from.
250 - 500 g
With a weighing capacity range of 250 to 500 g, this group of analytical balances will fit your needs for larger analytical measurements. Analytical balances are some of the most common types in the lab, so you should find a large selection to choose from.
Microbalances are those with a readability of 1µg (0.000001 g). Lab microbalances usually have a maximum capacity of approximately 50 g.
Choose one of the following capacity ranges.
0 - 25 g
A smaller weighing capacity range of 0 to 25 g represents the first grouping of microbalances. This small weight is required in order to obtain the high resolution a microbalance provides your lab. The selection of manufacturers to choose from is limited as only a few can produce such an outstandingly accurate balance.
25 - 50 g
A slightly larger weighing capacity range of 25 to 50 g represents this second grouping of microbalances. This small weight is required in order to obtain the high resolution a microbalance provides your lab. The selection of manufacturers to choose from is limited as only a few can produce such an outstandingly accurate balance.
Ultra-microbalances are those with a readability of 0.1 µg (0.0000001 g). Laboratory ultra-microbalances usually have a maximum capacity of approximately 5 g.
OHAUS Explorer® Analytical
The OHAUS Explorer Series of analytical balances combine modern features and design elements to offer unmatched functionality in a line of high-performance balances unlike any other on the market. These smart and intuitive balances and all of their intelligent features simplify even the most complex laboratory measurements.
A large color touchscreen gives access to the advanced application modes and icon-driven application software features such as user manager, library, and minimum weight indication.
Explorer features fast stabilization times, optimized linearity and repeatability specifications, enhanced vibration filtering as well as AutoCal™ calibration to ensure accuracy.
The draftshield provides easy entry to the weighing chamber through the flip or sliding top door and the top-mounted side doors which can be automatically controlled on /AD models.
OHAUS Pioneer® Plus Analytical
The OHAUS Pioneer Series of analytical balances are designed for basic routine weighing in a variety of laboratory, industrial and education applications. With the right combination of performance and features, the OHAUS Pioneer offers uncomplicated performance for all your basic weighing needs.
Pioneer's draftshield is constructed of all glass panels and three sliding doors, which are easy to remove for cleaning or storage.
The up-front level indicator is located right next to the display and allows the user to quickly make sure the balance is level prior to each use.
Pioneer is designed with selectable environmental settings and three filter modes in order to ensure accurate operation in a variety of settings.
OHAUS Adventurer® Analytical
Striking the ideal balance between inventive features and functional, uncomplicated weighing capabilities, the OHAUS Adventurer incorporates all of the applications necessary for routine weighing and measurement activities. With a color touchscreen, GLP/GMP compliance capabilities, two USB ports, and much more, Adventurer is the most complete balance in its class.
Fast stabilization and reliable operation are enhanced by the AutoCal™ option to ensure solid weighing performance and accurate, repeatable results for standard laboratory applications.
The wide viewing angle color touchscreen provides access to all of Adventurer’s applications, while dual USB ports with GLP/GMP tracking capabilities assist in the monitoring and reporting of data.
The two-piece, top-mounted draftshield doors reduce the footprint of the doors in the rear of the balance when open, and open wide on both sides in order to provide ample room to place samples.
Summit Measurement PBW-3200 High Capacity Balance
The PBW is a new high capacity balance from Summit Measurement that reads 3,200g x 0.01g. It is a great value for the spec, and a reliable balance. Comes with a ton of weighing units: g, ct, oz, dwt, oz t, lb, GN, kg, g/m2
The PBW-3200 comes with an RS232 interface that allows for connectivity to a PC, printer or other peripheral system integration.
The platter is a larger than usual 6.2" square, as compared to most lab balances with a smaller useable area.
The PBW comes with a user manual, power adapter, and everything you need to plug-and-play.
Summit Measurement PM Series Milligram Balance
A milligram balance has a resolution of 0.001g, or 1 mg. This balance is designed similarly to it's more expensive counterpart: the analytical balance. The glass doors are known as an analytical type draft shield, and they shield the sample pan from any draft, breeze, or environmental changes while weighing. The doors are very handy when working with a pouring application, as other milligram balances with a cylindrical design draft shield require pouring from the top (causing splatter)... With the PM-300 milligram balance from SummitMeasurement.net, all you have to do is slide the door back, pour your sample and close the door. The balance will display the weight of the sample on the LCD.
Summit Measurement SMB Series Moisture Balance Kit
Offering the highest quality in Moisture Analysis at one of the lowest prices around. Displays results for solids and liquids. Very stable unit is easy to learn and use. Comes in a carrying case with a 50 g calibration weight, pan tweezers, pan pliers, 50 disposable aluminum sample pans, 25 disposable glass fiber pads and an owners manual.
