Features of balances & scales

Some of the modern balances and scales will have digital readouts on them, which can make them easier to read. Most of the scales will also have a top loading feature. Balances will have two separate plates, one on either side. The features for each of the scales will be different based on the type of scale that it actually is.

How balances & scales work

balance and scale rentalsWhile each of the different types of balances and scales might be slightly different, they all work in much the same way. The goal of each is to accurately weigh some type of item. Some will use spring mechanisms, while others will use pendulums. Digital scales are quite popular, and today they are quite accurate, which can make them a good choice. You simply place the item that you need to weigh onto the scale, and then check the readout on the display. Different types of scales will work differently though. For example, a pendulum scale has a weight fixed to an arm that swings upward when being weighted. It will keep swinging until it reaches a balance. A spring scale features a metal spring to balance the load that you are weighing. The amount of distortion to the spring will indicate the weight of the item.

About balances & scales

Some of the most essential parts of any laboratory setting today are balances and scales. While they are a relatively simple part of lab equipment, and they’ve been in use for hundreds of years, they are still vital. They ensure accuracy when measuring and weighing items, and accuracy is always important in the lab. Many different types are available today depending on your preference and what you really need for the job. They are available in digital, spring, and pendulum options.
