High Capacity Precision Scales for Your Laboratory
In laboratory weighing applications where frequent calibration is required, high capacity precision scales can provide the precise data you need.
When you need the best possible high capacity balances for your lab, check out Torbal’s most powerful line of scales, the Precision PRO series. The AG high capacity series includes sophisticated scales ranging from 1000g to 4000g with a resolution of 0.01g, making this scale a perfect weighing solution for applications that require advanced weighing.
The Best Ways to Get Exact Weight Measurements Using Torbal Scales
Regardless of whether you want to measure a powder, granules, a solid object, or liquids, exact measurements are vital in any scientific or industrial application. Torbal Scales are excellent tools that can provide accurate readings on a milligram scale, but there is some skill required in taking perfectly accurate measurements. Generally, keeping the following points in mind when making measurements will prevent errors in measurement due to inaccurate readings.
The Best Place for Analytical Balances
For users with the most stringent requirements for accurate measurements, Torbal scales and balances are among the top possible choices for both price and quality. In spite of seeking the highest quality balances for accurate measurements, some end users invariably make the mistake of placing the balance in an area that will cause inaccurate measurements. Just as important as purchasing a high-quality analytical balance and alongside the importance of using it correctly, it's important to give some thought to the exact placement of the balance within a room. Placement of an analytical balance can make a huge difference between milligram-accurate measurements and large error margins.
Torbal Force Gauges Are Built to Last
Force Gauges are compact measuring instruments that are used across a vast array of industries and laboratory environments. A force gauge is used to measure the force during a push or pull test.
In a digital force gauge, the load cell, or force sensor, flexes as force is exerted on it. As it flexes, the device measures this strain as a voltage output. The greater the force, the greater the strain and the greater the voltage output. The voltage is converted into a force value that is shown on the force gauge display.
What to Consider When Choosing a Platform Scale
When choosing a platform balance, be sure to select the right size of weighing platform. You'll want to ensure that whatever you will be weighing will not hang over the edges when the object’s center of gravity is centered on the platform. You also need to consider your desired resolution of the LCD readout, the required accuracy, and the maximum weight that will be placed on the scale. Keep in mind that a platform scale that can measure very heavy weights will not have the precision of one used for smaller items.
Due to power outages, road closures, and flooding caused by storm SANDY, all Fulcrum Inc. operations will be suspended until further notice. We are hoping to resume operations on Wednesday October 31st. Orders can be placed on-line www.torbalscales.com or via fax (973)777-8302 but will not be processed and shipped until operations return to normal.
Technical support inquiries can be submitted via our contact forms http://www.torbalscales.com/contacts or http://www.fulcruminc.net/contact-us.html . We will do our best to address your questions ASAP.
We apologize for the inconvenience, and our hearts go out to everyone affected most by the storm throughout New Jersey and the entire East Coast.
Torbal: A Long History of Quality Scales and Balances
Our company, Fulcrum Inc., was established in 2000 when it acquired Torbal™ and the Torsion Balance prescription line. But Torbal scales and balances have been around for over 100 years. The company dates back to the late 1800s when it became famous for its superior weighing mechanisms. The name Torbal is an acronym for Torsion Balance Company.
New Precision Scales Prove To Be Versatile
Precision scales have evolved tremendously over the last, few years. Having progressed from typical analog scales, precision scales have been adapted to incorporate a streamlined digital technology and can now be connected directly to computers for easy record keeping.
Crane Scales: Industrial Scales for Cumbersome Objects
A crane scale is a useful type of industrial scale with a very specific purpose. Crane scales weigh objects that are suspended above the ground. The scale is attached between a hook and the object being lifted.
Crane scales create a practical way to weigh large or awkward objects that you couldn't easily place on a top-loading platform scale. Built for rigorous, commercial use, these scales often use a hand held remote control for the read out.
Analytical Balances: When Precision Matters
When precision is important, analytical balances can help you get the precise measurement you need.
An analytical balance is a specialized device that can measure masses to within 0.0001 g. These balances are based on electro-magnetic force restoration load cells, which produce a counterbalancing force that essentially picks up the unknown weight and keeps the weigh pan from moving down under the gravitational effect.
How to Care for Washdown Scales
With their heavy-duty design, rugged stainless steel frame and protective seals, Torbal washdown scales are made to withstand even the most hazardous conditions. However, even though it’s a tough, industrial-strength piece of equipment, you should still treat your washdown scale with care. Be sure to provide adequate training for anyone who will be using these precision instruments.
What is geographical calibration of a scale?
Let’s start with what is calibration. We are talking about calibrating a scale in this article. Usually we are talking about using a mass standard to make a scale read correctly for one value of weight when we calibrate a scale..
When a new scale is shipped from one location, like a distributor’s warehouse in Los Angeles, to another location, like a research lab in Denver, CO, it must be calibrated before it is put into use. This is because the parameter we call weight is the result of the earth’s gravitational field acting upon the mass of the unknown.
