What Is The Difference Between A Balance & A Scale?

HOW ARE BALANCES AND SCALES DIFFERENT?

From cows and calves to trucks full of rock, grain, or gravel - weighing scales are commonly associated with the weighing of heavy objects that send the scale’s numbers skyrocketing. High-capacity scales, however, are just one piece of the modern weighing puzzle.

A typical animal or platform scale, for example, offers capacities as high as 3,000kg to 5,000kg, down to the gram. Precision balance scales, on the other hand, are generally more sophisticated, offering finer resolutions for smaller weights as low as 150g in 0.01g increments.

The fine level of measurement and precision of a balance scale means they’re ideally suited for laboratories, chemists, pharmacies, and other professional environments. Environments where the success or failure of the task at hand relies on the precision weighing of very fine objects.

WHERE CAN I FIND AFFORDABLE, PRECISE BALANCE SCALES?

Precision often comes at a cost, but trusted suppliers such as Meltrons can provide you with a balance scale for a reasonable price without having to compromise on quality. When the margin for error is so small, can you really risk it?
