Luna LPB 423i Precision Balance (420g Capacity)
A brilliant choice for any laboratory, the
Luna LPB 423i Precision Balance (420g Capacity) is durable top-loading balance with many high-tech features. It is self-calibrating, able to measure substances up to 420g in weight, and is very easy to clean and maintain due to its sealed keypad and stainless steel holder. Please note that a calibration certificate for this device must be purchased at the same time by ticking the box at the top of the page. You cannot purchase this certificate for a balance or scale that has already been ordered. What Are Precision Balances?
Precision balances are also known as 'top loading balances' and offer a good compromise between precision and high capacity. They don't offer the same level of readability as analytical or semi-micro balances, but are still very precise compared to standard scales and are usually able to hold larger amounts of a substance at once.
Applications for the Luna LPB 423i Precision Balance
The Luna LPB Precision Balance has a decently sized pan for holding larger loads, and is easy to clean after accommodating messy substances like powders. It is therefore suitable for carrying out vital tasks in chemical or biological labs, including:
Weighing Parts counting Percentage weighing Dynamic weighing (e.g. liquids, animals) Determining density Checkweighing Cumulative weighing How Do I Operate the Luna LPB 423i Precision Balance?
With colour coded navigation and a bright, clear screen, the Luna LPB 423i Precision Balance can be used with little coaching. For more information on the set-up and use of your Precision Balance, take a look at the PDF Instruction Manual below:
User Instructions What Is the Capacity of the Luna LPB 423i Precision Balance?
The Luna LPB 423i Balance has a relatively large maximum capacity of 420g, yet still returns a precise result with a readability of 0.001g. Additionally it has a 120mm diameter pan, so can be used for a number of lab-based applications, including weighing liquids or medium-sized sample loads.
How Do I Calibrate the Luna LPB 423i Precision Balance?
The Luna LPB 423i Precision Balance offers both self-calibration or external calibration. Self-calibration can help you save time before tests, but you may want to use external calibration to verify measurements or if your laboratory follows a manual calibration process.
Date and Time Printouts for Data Traceability
In adherence with Good Laboratory Practise (GLP) guidelines, data printouts supplied by the Luna LPB Balance are time and date stamped for improved traceability. This can help you keep track of your processes for a more functional, organised laboratory environment.
Easy to Use
The Luna LPB Balance is full of advanced features, yet is still able to provide intuitive operation. It features colour-coded icons which mark commonly used functions, and has a bright, clear display with straightforward navigation.
To ensure your results are as reliable as possible, it's important that your balance is well-aligned and stable before use. Supplied with a level indicator and adjustable feet, the Luna LPB 423i Precision Balance makes this set-up process quick and simple.
What Security Features Does This Balance Have?
As this balance is a valuable, high tech piece of lab equipment it has been fitted with a security feature to help reduce the risk of theft. This consists of a security slot for Kensington-type locks and cables, which can prevent a balance from being taken out of a lab or work place.
