The new Torbal model ST-1 dial balance guarantees long-lasting, dependable accuracy. There are no knife-edges or friction pivots to be abraded by use, no loose weights to slow the operator. Instant silicone-fluid damping eliminates arrestment in handling dial and beam. The new Torbal meets them all. It has the same exclusive no-friction, no-knife-edge construction that has been standard in Torsion’s line of quality laboratory balances for over seventy-five years. The fine-weighing dial mechanism has proved itself in thousands of Torsion’s laboratory balances over the last five years.
