Core® Portable Compact Balances

The Core series of compact balances from Adam Equipment is the best choice for simple operation and economy. Core balances are ideal for entry-level weighing options in schools, labs and field work. Due to their portable nature, they are frequently used by jewellers on the move for checking the weight of gems, gold and diamonds.

The tough durable ABS housing is designed to withstand education, field and laboratory environments, while being easy to clean and protected from accidental spills. The large, grade 304 stainless steel top pan means that this balance can be cleaned down easily after use.

Built-in ShockProtect™ protection means that Core balances can withstand excessive overload without damaging the main weighing mechanism.

The unique stackability feature means that a number of Core balances can be stacked on top of each other without damaging the balances and meaning that several can be carried at the same time. These balances come complete with a removable draft shield, AC adapter, plus integral security slot, Core balances are ready to work right out of the box.
