[responsivevoice_button voice="US English Female" buttontext="Play"] / Go to Source Article This difference may seem like a minor thing, but in certain circumstances it can be very important.  For instance, let’s assume you have a sick child on your hands, and you need to give them antibiotics.  You need to put the antibiotics into a fluid, preferably a sweet one so they’ll actually swallow the medicine. That’s not something you want to have an inaccurate measure of. Weighing liquids is a relatively easy process when using an analytical balance.  The first step is procuring the necessary equipment for weighing, like containers of the right size for t...

The Versatile Force Gauge

In Business by Scientific Industries

Page Views:

[responsivevoice_button voice="US English Female" buttontext="Play"] / Go to Source Article The Force Gauge most often uses a strain gauge load cell to measure the amplitude of the force vector, and this is more consistent with industrial types of weigh Scales, which are of a somewhat reduced accuracy.  The strain gauge load cell is a more robust and much lighter and less complicated device, and is much better suited to the force gauge application.  Force Gauges may be single capacity devices, where they have a single built in strain gauge load cell, or they may use interchangeable strain gauges that allow them to change their measurement capacity ...

About Moisture Analyzers

In Events by Scientific Industries

Page Views:

[responsivevoice_button voice="US English Female" buttontext="Play"] / Go to Source Article The oven should not interfere with the scale’s weighing capability in any way, and is almost always a flip up design.  The oven is tipped up or raised in order to load the sample being evaluated into the center of the oven. What type of heating is used?  By far, the most popular type of heaters is halogen lamps because they generate large amounts of radiant energy, which heats the sample quickly.  However, this type of heating, while rapid, is not uniform. It heats the exposed surfaces very rapidly and relies on the thermal conduction to heat the core of t... Read More

[responsivevoice_button voice="US English Female" buttontext="Play"] / Go to Source Article If the load cell is the heart, then the computer is most certainly the brain of the scale, and the software enables it.  The software not only controls all of the scales operational functions, like parts counting, percent weighing, animal weighing, check weighing, etc., it also is involved in the metrology of the scale.  It corrects for the non-linearity of the force motor, it corrects for the overall temperature drift of the mechanisms, it changes the sensitivity of the scale every time the scale is recalibrated, and can provide...

Laboratory Balances, Analytical Balances, Semi-Micro Balances, Micro Balances, Why?

In Business by Scientific Industries

Page Views:

[responsivevoice_button voice="US English Female" buttontext="Play"] / Go to Source Article Almost all of these balances are based upon electro-magnetic force restoration load cells.  These load cells produce a counterbalancing force that essentially picks up the unknown weight and keeps the weigh pan from moving down under the gravitation effect upon the unknown weight.  The current required to produce the necessary magnetic field to balance the unknown weight is proportional to the weight and is what is measured and computer compensated for magnetic non-linearity and temperature effects. Please note that what is measur... Read More

The Difference between a Scale and a Balance

In Business by Scientific Industries

Tech News Keywords:

[responsivevoice_button voice="US English Female" buttontext="Play"] / Go to Source Article A scale, on the other hand, is a weighing device where the unknown weight is determined by scaling a different parameter into a weight value. The spring scale is a good illustration of a scale. In a hanging spring scale, the unknown weight stretches a coil spring which has a pointer attached to it. The pointer moves next to a “scale” that has been scribed on to the scales surface and is calibrated such that it reflects the unknown weight that caused the deflection.  In this case distance that the spring stretches is scaled to match the unknow...

Tips for Properly Using and Storing Weights

In Events by Scientific Industries

Page Views:

Precautions When Using and Storing Weights When working with weights, accuracy is key. However, many people underestimate how delicate weights really are. If they are mistreated or stored improperly, their mass changes. The little scratch or amount of rust can affect their mass in a big way. Here are a few tips for properly using and storing weights to ensure the most accurate results.  Using Weights Use Gloves - Bare hands should never touch weights. Oil from the skin and salt from sweat will stick to the weight eventually resulting in rust and causing a change in mass.  Use Wooden Tools - To prevent scratching the weight, it is important to use wooden tweezers and too...

Water is vital to sustaining life. In fact, every living organism that we know of requires sufficient water to thrive. Destructive bacteria and enzymes, however, also require sufficient water to thrive. Out of balance, too much water content multiplies the microorganisms that hasten decay. For this reason, moisture analysis becomes critical in food production. At least three things are making food processing and moisture control even more important.1. A reliance on speed and convenience.As our social norms lean more toward prioritization of speed and convenience, our processed and packaged foods have become more and more popular.
