Precision Balances

Precision balances can be defined as weighing machines that measure mass to a precise unit, usually in gram or milligram increments up to 0.001g. Precision balances are seen as versatile, high quality scales that include a range of weighing applications such as density determination, parts counting, percentage weighing and dynamic animal weighing. As a result, they are popular within a wide range of industries, including education, medical, veterinary and jewelry.

Q: How are precision balances different from analytical balances?

Precision balances are typically graded by readability in order to differentiate from other types of precision and analytical balances. Precision balances are seen as offering the lowest level of readability (between 0.1-0.01mg) with analytical balances, semi-micro balances and microbalances offering 0.01mg-0.0001mg respectively.

Precision balances are usually cheaper, portable and more robust than weighing scales with higher readabilities, and can be used for conducting science field experiments and within school classroom environments.
