Mechanical Balances

Simple, straightforward, and to the point, mechanical balances are a great method for providing for your measuring needs. Capable of quick and accurate weighing for a large variety of objects, these tools are favored for their simplicity and ease of use. In addition, not being digital means they are always ready to work, and you will never have to worry again about running out of battery or needing to connect to a power source. A compact, lightweight design makes them easy to store anywhere and use on the go, so they are a highly flexible and versatile piece of equipment for just about any situation.


The best features of using mechanical balances are accuracy and precision. With readability down to .01 grams, they allow users to get a very accurate reading with each and every use. Also, they are precise down to fractions of a gram, so you know you can rely on your readings without worry. Convenience is also another favorite, and these scales are very easy to set up and use. Top loading scales can be loaded in seconds, providing an instant measurement effortlessly. Beam balances employ the same convenient top loading technology, but allow more control over the measuring process to provide a higher degree of precision.

The convenience and intuitiveness of these scales make them a fantastic choice for any fast paced job. They are commonly seen in schools because they provide students with an intuitive and simple method for taking measurements and are a great tool for teaching. They are also useful in labs, kitchens, and any environment in which quick measurements are needed. With durable, long-lasting construction, they are perfectly suited to measuring solids, liquids, powders, or anything else you need. This flexibility makes them an easy place to look first when you are in need of effective measuring.

We are proud to offer a great selection of the best equipment from top manufacturers such as Brecknell, Ohaus, Adam Equipment, and more. All of our mechanical balances are at the best possible prices to ensure you can get the equipment you need. Mechanical options are often much more affordable than digital, making them an economical solution to your measurement needs, while still providing the same power and effectiveness you expect.
