Torsion’s Dial makes the difference.
And what the difference it makes! You can now make three times as many weighings per hour as before Torsion’s new Dial Balance. Here’s why:
Conventional laboratory balances use a graduated beam and slide weight for “fine” weighing after the weight has been determined with 1 gram. Under the old procedure the balance is arrested, slide weight positioned, balance released, balance comes to rest, position of indicator noted, balance arrested again, slide weight repositioned and so on until weight is determined within .01 gram.
All this time consuming “cut-and-try” procedure is replaced with a simple graduated dial which can be turned without arresting the oil-damped balance. This means that the time consuming part of the weighing (below one gram) can be “dialed-in” and in 1/3 the time.
In keeping with Torsion’s Million-Plus construction, the new Dial mechanism retains it’s original accuracy after more than a million weighings. That’s why Torsion Balance has unconditionally guaranteed the accuracy of the entire Dial mechanism.
Torsion’s new Dial Balance is available in two models.
DLT2 has a capacity of 120 grams, and sensibility reciprocal of 10 mgs. (10 mgs. moves the rest point one division).
DLT2-1 has the same specification but is equipped with a scoop for seeds or other bulky material.
