The Core compact balance (CQT) series from Adam Equipment is the best choice for simple operation and economy. Core balances offer a variety of features suitable for veterinary, laboratory, medical and educational institutions.

The Core consists of a tough durable ABS housing and a grade 304 stainless steel weighing pan that is easy to clean and able to protect against accidental spills in busy school classrooms and science labs. The unique stackability feature means that a number of Core balances can be stacked on top of each other without damaging the balances and meaning that several can be carried at the same time when conducting field experiments or for efficient storing in supply cupboards and prep rooms.

An easy to read clear backlight LCD display make this scale easily accessible, whilst Adam Equipment's patented ShockProtect™ protection allows Core balances to withstand excessive overload without damaging the main weighing mechanism.

Complete with a removable draft shield, AC adapter, plus integral security slot, Core balances are ready to work right out of the box. We have a number of different models and capacities available, please contact us if you require more information.

What do the 100g x 1mg type numbers mean?

When we show pairs of numbers such as 100g X 1mg or 12kg x 0.1g we are using an industry-wide shorthand which represents: capacity x readability. The 'x' does not mean multiply but could be read as 'with'.

Capacity is the maximum mass that can be measured on that scale or balance.

Readability is the smallest difference that the scale or balance can weigh to and display. Readability can be also be referred to as graduations, precision and resolution.
