Suitable for use in a range of industries including education, research or production, the Solis SPB 363e Precision Balance (360g Capacity) is a high-tech top-loading balance that offers intuitive operation. It has a bright clear display, clearly marked arrow keys, and has a maximum capacity of 360g, making it ideal for measuring medium-sized samples.
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 Solis SPB 363e Precision Balance
The Solis SPB 363e Precision Balance has a capacity range of 0.02g - 360g, yet still retains a high readability of 0.001g. As such, it is a great choice for measuring relatively large samples to a highly precise figure, and can be used for:
- Parts counting
- Percentage weighing
- Dynamic weighing (e.g. liquids, animals)
- Determining density
- Peak hold
- Cumulative weighing
How Do I Operate the Solis SPB 363e Precision Balance?
With colour-coded navigation and a bright, clear screen, the Solis SPB 363e is very easy to use, even if you don't have a lot of technological expertise. For more information on the set-up and use of your Precision Balance, take a look at the PDF Instruction Manual below:

Quick and Easy to Use
Despite this balance offering a number of state-of-the-art features, it is incredibly easy to set up and operate. It has an icon-driven display and clearly marked arrow keys for straightforward navigation, while its relatively high capacity allows you to measure bigger samples all at once.
The bright, high resolution display ensures you can read your results with ease, even if you don't have 20/20 vision. On top of this, it is also programmed to cater to different languages, and can therefore be operated immediately by non-English speakers.
What Is the Capacity of the Solis SPB 363e Precision Balance?
The Solis SPB 363e Balance has a maximum capacity of 360g, yet still returns a precise result with a readability of 0.001g. As the pan is big enough to hold large amounts of a sample, it can enable quick, efficient measuring of anything from powders to liquids.
How Do I Calibrate the Solis SPB 363e Precision Balance?
The Solis SPB 363e Precision Balance relies on external calibration which must be carried out manually using calibration weights. This design can take a little more time to set up before testing, but it is the more cost-effective option compared to self-calibrating balances.
Date and Time Printouts for Data Traceability
In adherence with Good Laboratory Practise (GLP) guidelines, data printouts supplied by the Solis SPB are time and date stamped for improved traceability. This can help you keep track of your processes for a more functional, organised laboratory environment.
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.
