Precision Balances Help

Q: What is a precision balance?

A precision balance or precision scale is used to describe a higher grade of balance or weighing scale with a high precision (up to 0.01g readability). As a result, precision scales are precise and accurate with measurement and are ideal for customers looking for a scale with a fine resolution.

Q: What is the difference between an analytical balance and a precision scale?

A: The difference between analytical balances and precision scales are usually confined to the degree of precision and the features utilised for this purpose. For example, if we compare Adam Equipment's Nimbus precision scales to the analytical balances also within the Nimbus scale range, we find that analytical balances provide a 0.0001g readability compared with 0.001g for the precision scale. However, the Nimbus precision balance has a greater pan size and capacity compared with the Nimbus analytical balance.
