Balances are for weighing in high resolution. In this category, we feature scales that can display 1mg or less. Scales that can display 1/1000 of a gram are usually very sensitive to air movement and are often best used with a draft shield. Many of our balances come with draft shields and some do not. Also, balances perform better on very heavy and sturdy surfaces. Economical balances use strain gage technology and are sometimes not stable for long periods. For example, you might have decent and repeatable performance when placing a load on the scale for 5 seconds and then removing it. If you leave the weight on the scale for a minute or more, you might see some drift. High performance balances use other types of technology to sense weight. This will allow for greater capacity with high resolution and will have less drift. These high end scales often have many functions built into the scale for analysis, self calibration and the ability to hang a load below the scale to calculate mass. Products listed here are a representation of what we offer, but not all the scales we can provide for you. Call us with your specific needs and we can find you a great fit for your operation.
Look at the Setra Himalaya HI410 and Seirra SI410 series balances in the Setra Section - thay both feature 410g by .001g and include a draft shield. These are very good scales with high end scale perfomance and a mid to low range cost.
