What is precision balance?

What is precision balance?

In the weighing industry, we define precision balances as “a balance used to weigh quantities to a very precise number, usually up to one milligram”. They’re sometimes referred to as “top loading balances”. Precision balances are available in a wide range of capacities, from several hundred grams up to kilograms.

What is the precision limit of an analytical balance?

An analytical balance will measure the accuracy of 0.0001 to 0.00001g.

Where are Radwag scales made?

ELLIPSIS. Radwag is a leading manufacturer of a wide range of modern analytical balance, moisture analyzer, electronic scales and accessories for many industries in Poland and in the world.

What is the accuracy of balance?

The accuracy of the balance relates to the measurement uncertainty of each reading, i.e., the ± tolerance in the result. A fast, stable weighing result is not necessarily an indication of accuracy. A balance that is inaccurate cannot reliably produce repeatable results.

How do you find the precision of a weighing balance?

W = 2 x 0.01 / 0.001 = 20mg Since the balance will be accurate enough to weigh 20mg, you know you’ll be fine to weigh 100mg. However, if you want to weigh a 10mg sample with the same maximum uncertainty tolerance, a balance with 0.01mg repeatability won’t be suitable.

How do you use chemical balance?


  1. Raise the beam slowly and note that the pointer swings equal decisions on both sides of the zero mark.
  2. Adjust the balance before taking weights on the pan.
  3. Always take the weight of permitted load and never overload the balance.
  4. If the weighing substance are wet use watch glass or weighing bottle.

How do I calibrate my balance?

Steps to calibrating an electronic balance

  1. Turn on the electronic balance.
  2. Ensure it is levelled and stable; and is placed away from any draughts.
  3. Enter the balance into Calibration Mode (instructions for this will be found in the product manual).
  4. Select Span Calibration (as per the manufacturer instructions)

How precision is calculated?

It is calculated as the ratio of correctly predicted positive examples divided by the total number of positive examples that were predicted….The precision for this model is calculated as:

  • Precision = TruePositives / (TruePositives + FalsePositives)
  • Precision = 90 / (90 + 30)
  • Precision = 90 / 120.
  • Precision = 0.75.

How do you find precision and accuracy?

The accuracy is a measure of the degree of closeness of a measured or calculated value to its actual value. The percent error is the ratio of the error to the actual value multiplied by 100. The precision of a measurement is a measure of the reproducibility of a set of measurements.

When should a balance be calibrated?

For the best accuracy, the balance should be calibrated regularly or if the local ambient temperature changes more than two degrees Celsius and you are making high-accuracy measurements.

How do you calibrate a precision scale?

Calibrating Your Scale Power on the scale and allow it to warm up (usually 30 seconds) Begin the calibration mode sequence. Follow the instructions on the scale’s display. Once the calibration process has been completed, remove the calibration weight and return to normal weighing modes.
