ASTM Class 6 Weights Calibrate Balances and Scales

August 31, 2011
A line of precision stainless steel weight sets for calibrating balances and scales used in education, food, forensic, pharmaceutical and other laboratory and quality control applications is being introduced by Alliance Scale, Inc. of Canton, Mass. Alliance/Ohaus ASTM Class 6 Weight Sets feature stainless steel weights for calibration applications that require greater accuracy than general purpose weights. Packaged in a wood box with foam to cradle and protect each weight, these kits each include 12 weights that meet Class 6 adjustment tolerances and come with tweezers for proper handling without touching.
