To ensure accurate measuring, you must consider the following factors prior to the selection of a new balance or scale:
- Largest weight to be weighed (including tare) -> specifies the capacity of the scale
- Smallest (net) weight to be weighed -> specifies the minimum weight of the scale
- Weighing accuracy required -> sets the upper limit to the allowable measurement uncertainty of the scale
- Environmental conditions and weighing application -> specify further properties of the scale
Scientifically select the balance or scale you need
GWP® Recommendation integrates metrological science with your specific requirements in a simple tool. It ensures that you purchase only equipment with measurement uncertainty smaller than the weighing accuracy.
GWP® Recommendation provides documented evidence that the selected instrument meets metrological, environmental and regulatory requirements.
GWP® Recommendation is globally available free of charge and can be issued for any METTLER TOLEDO balance or scale.
