Product Description

The Adam Equipment aluminum triple beam mechanical balance is operated by positioning the 10g, 100g, and 500g sliding weights along the notched and tiered beams. The weights have an indicator in the center, and the beams are graduated to help ensure accurate readings and repeatable results. The stainless steel weighing pan resists corrosion from spills of most sample materials and the aluminum housing is sturdy and durable. The balance has an integrated weigh-below hook for determining the density of solid samples. The three included counterweights for weighing above capacity can be stored on the balance base.

The aluminum housing has a built-in ruler, protractor, and measurement conversion chart for various measuring applications. An integrated security slot for locks and cables safeguards the balance from unauthorized use or theft.

Balances are measuring instruments used to determine the mass of an object, while scales are used to measure the weight of an object. The measurement results from balances are generally considered to be more precise compared to results from scales. Mechanical balances are the simplest type of balance, and use a lever and slide to indicate the measurement. Conventional balances are commonly used in offices, the jewelry industry, and in kitchens, and display results digitally, but are less precise and accurate than analytical balances. Analytical balances measure to a high degree of precision and accuracy (0.0001g or better), and display results digitally. These balances have a cover with doors to prevent dust and airflow from affecting the measurement. Moisture balances analyze moisture content in a material sample, using infrared or halogen heat sources to dry the sample and then calculate the moisture content from the before- and after-drying weight, and display results digitally, on the balance, or transfer the information for display on a computer.

Adam Equipment manufactures balances, scales, and related accessories for laboratory, educational, industrial, retail, and medical applications. The company, which was founded in the United Kingdom in 1972 and has an office in Danbury, CT, meets International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9001:2008 standards.

Size: 2.61kg Capacity, 0.1g ReadabilityColor: No Tare Verified Purchase
This scale is very accurate even though the quality is average. It does a fine job of weighing in grams. The scale would be fine for a school or individual but does not measure up to professional lab level quality. I had questions about the scale and contacted the company but never got any answer. I later found the same scale under a different brand name. The price is a little much but since it does the job for me I'm satisfied.

I am pretty anal about the accuracy of scales, but this one meets all my expectations. It is accurate to 0.1 gram, excellent for measuring the exact amount of sugar or whatever if you are watching your calories intake. Unlike digital scales where springs might have resistance until that resistance is breached, this three beam balance scale you can just watch it swing up and down until it settles. It's worth every penny.
