Worry-Free Weighing: Dealing with Static and Drafts

On Demand Webinar
Learn how to improve weighing accuracy and have more confidence in the weighing results generated. Understand the impact of environmental influences on weighing, such as air turbulence or drafts, temperature differences and electrostatic charges, and discover how to minimize or eliminate these effects.
40 minutes

Weighing is one of the most common activities carried out in the laboratory. In most cases, weighing is the critical first step in the preparation of a substance or sample for further analysis or processing. If the weighing result is unreliable, it can have a profound effect on the quality of the final results. However, many factors that can influence the accuracy of a weighing are often overlooked. This 40-min webinar describes the impact of environmental influences on weighing accuracy and provides advice on how to minimize the impact of air turbulence and drafts, temperature differences and electrostatic charges. Discover how the latest developments in weighing technology, including methods and accessories for analytical and precision balances, can help to reduce or even eliminate these influencing factors, to make the tasks of a balance-user more straightforward and less prone to error. Learn how to improve the reliability of weighing and have more confidence in the weighing results generated. 

Key Learning Objectives:

  1. Improve weighing accuracy by recognizing common external influences
  2. Understand how to control electrostatic influences on weighing results
  3. Discover how to manage temperature differences to maximize the accuracy of weighing
  4. Recognize the corrective measures that can be implemented to eliminate the effect of drafts or air turbulence on the weighing result

This webinar will be of interest to:

  • Analytical Laboratory Managers, Directors, and Department Heads
  • Laboratory Managers, Laboratory Supervisors, and Production Managers
  • GMP and CMC Consultants, GLP Auditors, and Quality Consultants
  • Anybody who is concerned with accurate weighing in the laboratory
