Calibration Weights

Calibration weights are used to calibrate your digital scale so that it is accurate. Depending on the size and accuracy of your digital scale, you may need to use different calibration weights. For example, a 100 gram weight may be required for a more accurate scale, while a 10 gram weight may suffice for a less accurate one.

Calibration Weight FAQs

Calibration weights are weights that are used to calibrate weighing scales and balances. They are typically made of stainless steel or other materials and are available in a range of sizes and weights.

The calibration weight you use will depend on the capacity and accuracy of your scale. You should consult the manufacturer’s instructions or guidelines to determine which weight(s) you need for calibration.

The frequency of calibration will depend on the type of scale, how frequently it is used, and the level of accuracy required. As a general rule, scales should be calibrated at least once a year, but more frequent calibration may be necessary for scales that are used frequently or in harsh environments.

No, only weights that are traceable to a national or international standard should be used for calibration. These weights are typically certified and come with a certificate of calibration.

To use calibration weights to calibrate your scale, you will need to follow the instructions provided by the scale manufacturer. Typically, this will involve placing the calibration weight(s) on the scale and verifying that the scale reads the correct weight. If the scale is not reading the correct weight, you may need to adjust the calibration settings or perform a zero calibration. American Scale also provides calibration services. 

What Our Customers Say

"The technicians that come here are great! The best thing is that they know exactly where everything is and are familiar with all the staff. Most important is this service is one of the few that I don't have to monitor or call, as it is always automatic for them."

"I received a call from a gentleman at Conway Freight regarding your service at Conway in Louisville.  Apparently he was extremely impressed with the service, repairs and installations American Scale completed at the terminal.  During the years we have been doing national service, this is the first time one of the national accounts has called specifically to compliment a dealer.  He has never walked into a terminal and not called me with some issue that needs to be fixed.  He said a couple times over there was not one little thing wrong with the scales that he could find. I want to thank your for everything you have done to present because American Scale represents Rice Lake and you have made both companies look great!  The gentleman who called is also the person who controls the reweighs and scale purchases for Conway corporate.  With that said, he was impressed!"
