Ultra Precision Laboratory Scales for Accurate Weighing

Ultra Precision Laboratory Scales for Accurate WeighingWhen your industry requires a high level of accuracy in your measurements you don’t want to worry that you might not have purchased the right scale for the job. A scale that is too inaccurate will cause you problems in measurement, but you don’t want to spend too much on a scale that may be more than you need. This balance of accuracy and price is seen most in choosing equipment for the laboratory.

Laboratories are one of the areas of industry where you want to make sure you have a highly accurate scale. When measuring reactants for laboratory tests, it is critical that you neither have too much, nor too little for your test. Either measurement error could cause problems with your test and give you a false result leading to either accepting a bad batch or rejecting a good batch of material.

Ultra Precision from Arlyn Scales: The Benefit of SAW Technology

While other scale dealers and manufacturers have precise scales for weighing in laboratories, they are expensive and often difficult to use. To combat this problem, the design team at Arlyn Scales has patented a technology that reduces the price of these scales without limiting the precision. Using the kind of Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) technology you would find in the fabrication of semiconductors and integrated circuits, Ultra Precision scales technology can measure much smaller deflections in a load cell for better precision.

By using SAW technology, Arlyn Scales can use much thicker load cells that are more resistant to damage from overloading and shock, providing a much more rugged piece of measuring equipment. This is made possible because the SAW technology can provide more accurate measurement of load cell deflection with one tenth of the bending of the load cell. With these rigid load cells, you get an increased overload capacity, much more stability in measurements when dealing with air currents, temperature drift or nearby vibrations, and scale capacities much higher than the alternative—as high as 1000 pounds.

With accuracy twenty times better than strain gauge scales, but one-third the cost of an equivalent Magnetic Force Restoration scale, why would you consider sacrificing either quality or cost in your scale purchase?

Series SAW-H Industrial Bench Scales: With the unmatched accuracy of SAW technology, this scale has a capacity of 200 pounds and a resolution of 0.002 pounds (or 90 kg by 1g). This easy-to-use bench scale is invaluable in the laboratory. A state-of-the-art graphics display system is easy to read, allowing your operator to devote his or her time to taking measurements, rather than tinkering with a difficult-to-use scale. Because this model is built with sturdy materials, the overload ruggedness of the scale is 250% of the rated scale capacity so you don’t need to worry about a slight excess of weighing material damaging the scale. Platform size is 12” by 16” and includes a wide variety of standard connectivity options such as RD-232, Wi-Fi, USB and Ethernet.

Large Ultra Precision Scales: When You Need Something Bigger

While the Ultra Precision SAW technology scales form Arlyn Scales give excellent precision and accuracy, they are only available in platform sizes up to 12” by 16”. What if you need an ultra precise scale that is larger? For weighing larger items, Arlyn has a series of ultra precision scales that have platforms measuring 20” by 23” and 31” x 31”.

These larger scales still provide superior accuracy that is at least ten times better than regular scales, with sensitivity up to 20 times that of a regular scale. Scale accuracy is 0.005% with an internal resolution of 1 part in 2 million and a display resolution of 1 part in 400,000. These units are automatically calibrated and require no expensive service or setup.

To provide the easiest of use, these units have no button functionality on a user-friendly backlit LCD dual display that includes part counting and check weight functionality. It offers 15 different weighing units including grams, pounds, ounces, kilograms and more. Add a rugged, die cast aluminum frame with click switches to this, along with a stainless steel weighing pan, and you have a rugged scale that is built to last.

SAW-HL, SAW-JL & SAW-KL Large Ultra Precision Scales: Arlyn’s three standard large ultra precision scales all have an accuracy of 0.01% of the full scale capacity and operate over a 14°F to 104° F temperature range. Capacities and resolutions on these three units are 200 pounds by 0.002 pounds, 300 pounds by 0.002 pounds and 500 pounds by 0.005 pounds respectively. Platforms are stainless steel, 4” in height, and have a platform size of 20” by 23”. Power requirements are 117 VAC, 50/60 Hz.
