Scale with Remote Display Gives 0.1g Resolution

The ILS/ILJ Industrial Scale with 0.1 g resolution
The ILS/ILJ Industrial Scale with 0.1 g resolution

The separate weighing platform of the new ILS 50K and companion ILS 30K, 50 kg and 30 kg capacity industrial scales, each with 0.1 g resolution and a 5 g minimum load, makes these laboratory balances ideal quality control instruments for accurately weighing heavy toxic, odor-emitting or contaminated samples under fume hoods or in glove bags. The rugged stainless steel weighing platform handles compact high-density samples such as drilled cores and sawed beams of concrete, and is connected to the control and display unit by a cable approximately 1 meter long.

Now available from Tovatech, these lab scales are offered with external calibration (the ILS configuration using a separately purchased 30 or 50 kg weight) or with automatic internal calibration (the ILJ configuration).  ILJ models will re-calibrate every 3 hours or when there is a temperature change of 3⁰C or more.  With a linearity of ± 0.4 g and reproducibility of 0.2 g both models have a pre-tare function to compensate for the weight of sample containers and both feature a large backlit liquid crystal display.

Multipurpose Industrial Lab Scales

In addition to precision weighing the Kern ILS and ILJ lab scales can be used for

  • Piece counting against reference quantities
  • Percentage determination as a % deviation from the target value (100%)
  • Metric/non-metric weighing such as grams, kilograms, carats, ounces
  • Tolerance or check weighing for portion division, dispensing or grading
  • Step by step solid or liquid density determination aided by a display mounted user guide
  • Manual or automatic totalizing

The scales support GLP/ISO record keeping of weighing data with date, time and identification number when connected via an RS232 interface using Kern printers also available from Tovatech.  They carry a 3-year warranty and are shipped with a detailed instruction manual.

About Rachel Kohn

So how did an MIT Ph.D. end up selling refrigerators? When I figured out that a lot more scientists buy lab refrigerators than innovative leading-edge instruments. I hope that my many years of lab experience will help you find the right equipment for your work. Before co-founding Tovatech I worked in business development and project management at Smiths Detection, Photon-X, Cardinal Health, and Hoechst Celanese. And before that I spent 12 years as an R&D chemist at Hoechst Celanese and Aventis working on advanced drug delivery systems, polymer films and membranes, optical disks, and polysaccharides. Some day, eventually, I’ll make enough money to develop an innovative technology that will change the world. Read More
