Mass comparators or comparator balances are professional-grade laboratory balances used in metrology testing and laboratory calibration houses.
Comparator balances feature exceptionally high resolutions in order to measure calibration weights from OIML F1 class and below. Minute weight deviations can be detected using mass comparators which makes them ideal for for testing procedures that require absolute precision.
These balances may also be used for weighing unstable substances such as chemicals, liquids and powders.
A&D's MC mass comparator can be customised with self-centering weighing pans, remote-control calibration and printer-mounting kits; the balance is also fully GLP compliant.
Looking for calibration weights? We stock a wide variety of M1, F1, E1 and E2 calibration test weights manufactured and Adam Equipment and Kern.

Mass Comparators Help
Q: What features should I expect with a mass comparator balance?
Mass comparators are top-of-the-range weighing balances that include a wide range of unique hardware and software configurations. We currently stock A&D's MC mass comparator which includes the following features and many more:
- Extra decimal place - The addition of an extra decimal place for monitoring fine weight changes with heavy tare weights.
- Stabilizing filter - The stabilizing filter minimises the effects cuased by vibrations and drafts whilst weighing a sample.
- Automatic Internal Calibration - Whilst available on many professional balances, the MC mass comparator includes automatic internal calibration that can be controlled via a remote control accessory or one-touch activation.
- Numerous weighing units - As well as the usual gram, kilogram and pound measurements, the MC includes a wide range of distinct weighing units including Taels, Carat, Messghal and Grains.
