At first glance the term waterproof scale brings to mind environments filled with liquids that can overflow onto the device.  While that scenario is often true regardless of the process area, dry environments can also necessitate waterproof scales. Many times, the material being weighed can spill onto the scale surface, and smaller granular material can render the air dusty and settle on the scale display.

Whether the scale in question is being used to package a final product or stage a raw material, the operator is not going to think twice before unleashing a water hose to clean the piece of equipment.  Proper industrial hygiene is essential to workplace safety, which means that the equipment present in the production area needs to withstand the rigorous demands of production and cleanup.

Jewelry Scales Ensure Accurate Sales

Dec 6, 2013 9:13:00 AM

Jewelry scales often aren't the focus of the jewelry industry. After all, who cares about a simple scale when you have precious metals and gemstones all around you? The humble jewelry scale certainly can take a backseat to the glamor, but it shouldn't. In reality, the jewelry scale is one of the most important aspects of the jewelry industry.

Consider, for example, that your humble, insignificant-looking jewelry scale can be the difference between a great transaction and losing money. With a substance as precious as gold, even a few tenths of an ounce can represent a lot of money. For that reason, you have to make sure that when you're weighing jewelry, your scale is accurate.

Moisture analyzers help researches determine the amount of moisture within a product. They accomplish this by measuring the weight of a product once is has completely dried over a certain period of time. This measurement is called, LOD. The LOD helps researchers solve a variety of issues from product durability to shelf life. These analyzers dry products using microwaves or infrared heaters mounted on top of the scale.


Without moisture analysis, many industries would not be able to regulate society's most valuable products. From the food industry to the pharmaceutical industry, moisture analyzers play a significant part in determining an item quality and efficiency of use.

Washdown scales aren't exactly the most glamorous piece of equipment. In fact, they don't even have a very glamorous life. They get slopped on, wet, dirty, and trampled on a semi-regular basis. What most people don't consider though is that washdown scales are absolutely imperative to many industries, and the research world is just one of them. Think for a moment about medical research. What comes to mind is probably mice and rats, but those aren't the only animals that are used to find cures for modern diseases.

No two scales are alike. They differ on capacity, accuracy, and construction. These qualities contribute to the overall functionality of a scale as to whether it measures correctly or not. It is important to consider this when trying to find affordable scales that are right for business or laboratory use.

 

Differences in Scales

 

There are many kinds of scales. Each one is designed with different capacities and accuracies for specific jobs. Some are designed for more delicate work in microgram ranges while others are constructed to meet heavy-duty industrial uses in kilograms

When it comes to buying a school scale, it's useful to know how they are used so you can choose the right one. One of the most basic concepts taught at early levels is a wide category that involves weight concepts. You might think it is nothing more than putting something on the scale and reading the number, but it is so much more. Let us explain.


Weighing a substance starts with holding it in the hand and identifying the properties. What is its volume? How heavy it is relative to something else? From here, talks lead to talking about balances and scales and what weight actually means.

Many new, small businesses are cropping up that cater to the growing organic and homemade-style food market, causing many amateurs and newbies to get into the pre-packaged food industry. When it comes to making organic foods, this often presents new challenges because manufacturers cannot use traditional preservatives to increase shelf life. Food moisture content then becomes even more important.

Water is one of the most plentiful substances in the world and one of the most powerful. It can cause problems in all instances where precise conditions are necessary. The degradation it can cause, even during small-scale exposure is dramatic.

In order to ensure that a lab always works the way it’s expected to, it’s always important to make sure that items such as the water resistant scale you use conform to quality control standards. This is an issue that many people take for granted, but which can turn out to be the bane of any lab if not taken care of well. According to the CDC, quality control “encompasses a range of activities that enable laboratories to achieve and maintain high levels of accuracy and proficiency despite changes in test methods and the volume of specimens tested.” It is important that all labs try to follow such standards to ensure that they end up providing the quality that they are expected to in terms of results after tests are done.

It is one of the most sought-after natural resources in the world. It provides the weapons for guerrilla revolutions. It is used to signify a lifelong commitment. For centuries, it has held great value by mankind while remaining embroiled in controversy. This is the diamond of course. For hundreds of years there has been a competitive market for trading in diamonds, but where did all start? 

 

Trading in diamonds dates back over 1,000 years, to India. At the time, India controlled the entire supply of the world’s diamonds. The ‘wholesalers’ carried the diamonds across Arabia to be traded with Jewish merchants. These merchants would then resell the diamonds in Europe. The diamonds became so common that they were used as collateral for loans and large payment amounts.

The Kilogram Standard for Lab Scales

Oct 11, 2013 1:52:12 PM

Everyone knows what a lab scale does, and we all have a general idea of what the measurements represent. The words pound, ounce, gram, and kilogram are used in labs, factories, airports, and even at your gym, but do we really know what they mean? For instance, we can conceptualize the kilogram, we know that it is 1000 time heavier than a gram, but how did we decide how much the kilogram weighed in the first place? 

 

For thousands of years, humans worked to perfect the balance but no matter how precise the tool became the need for a standard was clear. We needed a measurable constant that we could place on one side of a balance for all other things to be measured against. The idea was sound, but the early implementations were rocky.
