The rapid determination of a weight is usually carried out with the aid of a balance. Depending on the working range (weighing range) and readability of the weight value, a distinction is usually made in the laboratory between precision and analytical balances. A weighing table and draft shield reduce measurement inaccuracies. Instruments with internal self-calibration make it possible to dispense with external calibrations using test weights. DAkks calibrations ex works or necessary calibrations are available on request.
In the moisture analyzer, in addition to weight measurement, the ashing of the sample is of fundamental importance. The difference in weight between the introduction and removal of the sample is used to determine the moisture content of the substance used. These devices are frequently used in the food industry.
