How to set up a balance Tips for Density Determination
A density determination can be carried out with a balance. A new poster by Mettler Toledo gives tips on how to set up the density measurement.
Using a balance to determine the density of solids such as precious metals and jewelry has never been easier. However, setting certain simple parameters prior to the measurement can help ensure that the density determination exercises are highly accurate as well. A new poster from Mettler Toledo references 7 tips that will help you obtain accuracy when determining density using your JET/JE/JP balance. Starting with a quick refresher on Archimedes’ principle, the poster will help prepare the tools and set up environmental conditions so the laboratory technician are sure to capture the information he or she needs. Fast, balance-based density determination has application in quality-control labs and jewelry manufacturing facilities around the world. This easy and convenient method delivers highly reliable results when compared to methods where density is determined independent of weight. Density kits are easy to mount on a Mettler Toledo balance. To learn more about successfully obtaining accurate density determinations in a lab, retail or manufacturing facility, the download of the poster is free of charge.
