Analytical Balances

What is an analytical balance?

Analytical balances are high precision weighing machines with up to 0.1mg readabilities. They are commonly regarded as a mid-range laboratory balance sorted by readability, starting with precision balances (0.1mg) and moving up to analytical balances (0.01mg), semi-microbalances (0.001mg) and microbalances (0.0001mg).

An analytical balance is used for advanced scientific weighing and are commonly found in research and development facilities, medical institutions and science laboratories. Analytical balances include a wide range of features including accumulation, dynamic weighing and density determination for accurately weighing chemicals, compounds and liquids in tiny increments.

Scaletec's analytical balances for sale

Scaletec currently stock Adam Equipment's most popular range of analytical balances, the Nimbus. Nimbus analytical balances are high-performance balances for laboratory weighing at an affordable price, with a readability range of 0.1g to 0.1mg and a weighing capacity up to 250g.

Nimbus balances feature a durable, compact design that can easily fit on a lab bench surface. The balance includes a protective draft shield for preventing exterior forces from affecting the weighing area. A grade 304 stainless steel weighing pan allows the scale to be easily wiped down and cleaned after weighing. The balance's base is formed from a single piece of extruded aluminium, a material that provides superior temperature regulation.

The Nimbus comes with a wide range of weighing applications including density determination, parts counting, percentage weighing and dynamic/ animal weighing; perfect for university, medical and food labs as well as other laboratory-based operations.

Q: What is the difference between an analytical balance and precision balance

Analytical balances usually have a higher degree of precision (up to 0.0001g) than precision balance models (0.001g), as a result, analytical balances are typically more expensive and can complete with protective draft shields in order to protect the weighing chamber from vibrations and outside fluctuations.

When using an analytical balance, it is recommended that users work on an anti-vibration table for the most accurate results.

Q: What are the parts of an analytical balance?

Modern analytical balances comprise of a weighing pan, front-level indicator, draft shield, connectivity ports as well as the keypad and display as standard. Most types of analytical balance can be customised with below balance weighing hooks and other hardware for performing chemical analysis and more complex weighing tasks.

In the case of Adam scales, weighing applications such as dynamic weighing and density determination can be accessed through the keypad menu.

Q: How to calibrate an analytical balance?

the process for analytical balance calibration will differ depending on the model. Analytical balances with internal calibration can be easily calibrated by going into the balance's setup menu and selecting the internal calibration option; in some cases there may also be an option for auto-calibration that will allow the balance to automatically calibrate at set intervals. Analytical balances with external calibration will require regular use of approved calibration weights to ensure reliable and accurate results. Most high-end analytical balances will require E2 class calibration test weights
