The Adam Equipment LBK compact bench provides precision measurements with a two-second settling time that allows for increased productivity. The stainless steel weighing pan resists corrosion and can be removed for easy cleaning. This low-profile scale can be operated using AC power, or the built-in rechargeable battery for up to 90 hours, for full mobility in the field and when a power supply is hard to find. The auto off function can be enabled to power off the scale automatically during periods of inactivity to conserve power. This scale has an automatic external calibration system, and overload protection prevents damage to the weighing cell if too-heavy samples are mistakenly used. Using the keypad, the scale easily switches into preset parts-counting and percent-weighing modes.
The scale has a backlit digital display for readability and weighs in five different units. The ABS plastic housing is durable and easy to clean, and is built to withstand tough field and lab environments. Adjustable nonslip feet provide level measurements and stability, so the scale will not tip under eccentric loads.
Scales or balances are measuring instruments used to determine the mass of an object. 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 than analytical balances. Analytical balances measure to a high degree of precision and accuracy (0.0001 g 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.
