“I made one hundred and ten grammes instead of one hundred grammes. What do I do? Can I leave it?”

In our everyday life, episodes like this one are very frequent, and in the specific relationship with the butcher it has become a tacit convention.

However, we seldom pay attention to familiar situations and objects, thinking about the essential importance that impeccable precision has had during the weighing phase in that particular circumstance.

From the car that we drove yesterday evening, produced thanks to the essential contribution of industrial electronic scales, to the cereal box that we ate for breakfast, from the paint that we will use to decorate the fence of our garden next weekend, to the monitor that we are watching right now to read these lines.

Weigh in the correct way components, semi-finished and final products is a very important activity in every market area, such as automotive, food, electronic or industrial sector, just to name a few, but in some cases the accuracy to milligramme literally represents the difference between a successful production and a worthless batch.

Let’s discover some characteristics of laboratory and pharmacy scales.

Laboratory scales: when precision can’t be optional

In contexts where the accuracy to milligramme, mentioned earlier, is a mandatory request, we have to use laboratory scales. Among the various models available on the market, the best support is offered by measuring instruments such as precision scales which can weigh from 100 grammes to 3000 grammes, with a level of guaranteed accuracy to 0.001 gramme, LCD backlit screen for an easier consultation, weighing and counting functions and 17 different units of measurement available in order to be used immediately in all the countries of the world.

Every day researchers, professionals, specialists and scientists in every part of the world rely on these precious instruments to design and develop solutions that influence in many different ways our everyday life. Which side effects could be caused by a weighing mistake of even less than one gramme during the production of a medicine, the synthesis of a flammable chemical compound, or the organization of a testing system inside a physics laboratory? Potentially destructive, likely to compromise completely the expected result and, in some cases, to be very dangerous for the safety of one or several people.         

Scales for pharmaceutical sector

Scales for pharmaceutical sector are a great example that represents how precision is an essential production requirement. When pharmacological compounds and medicines are studied, analyzed or prepared, nothing can be left to chance. That is why precision scales used in this specific sector are often equipped with particular systems or mechanisms to reduce the margin of error, such as monobloc sensor, automatic internal calibration, anti-vibration functions with 6 levels, adjustable weight stabilization time, 20 units of measurement, PC connection through specific plugin and much more.        

Scales for chemistry laboratory

Scales for pharmaceutical sector aren’t the only devices in which the accuracy to 0.001 gramme is highly recommended. Also industrial, electronic and non-electronic, laboratory and chemical scales need state-of-the-art measurement systems. In chemistry laboratories, for all technicians it is important to use instruments with a good, useful and practical weighing pan, equipped with conductive painting resistant to impacts and contacts with different elements, safe and non-slip support, windproof cage to prevent interferences of external agents up to the weight of 1 milligramme, and high-contrast LCD display for an easy and fast reading of the data.

Scales for physics laboratory

Analyzing the most suitable solutions for physics laboratories, we have to talk about precision scales which can combat highly damaging phenomena for the success of experiments and procedures. Wrong reference mass, draughts, friction between moving parts, static powder, misalignment between pans, inclined supports and pans, interferences of magnetic and electric fields are some of the inconveniences that laboratory scales must absolutely avoid. In order to guarantee the success of the complex and delicate procedures applied by scientists and researchers, it is absolutely fundamental to rely on precise measurements and high-quality weighing systems: a good starting point to learn more about cutting-edge solutions is certainly the section dedicated to laboratory scales on our website.
