A test to determine whether the display of an analytical balance is affected by the load distribution on the weighing pan.



Related Terms

CREEP ERROR

The error that occurs during a mass determination with a digital analytical balance when a value is read, printed, or processed before the display has reached its final position.

MOBILITY

The ability of an analytical balance to react to small load changes; affected by friction and degree of looseness in the balance components.

ANALYTICAL BALANCE

A balance with a sensitivity of 0.10.01 milligram.

TIMKEN OK LOAD

The heaviest load that a test lubricant will sustain without scoring the test block in the Timken Test procedures, ASTM Methods D 2509 (greases) and D 2782 (oils).

CONVEYOR BELT BALANCE

A balance used for weighing unpackaged, loose, continuously transported material on a conveyor belt by weighing the load being moved and measuring the belt speed.

ANIMAL BALANCE

A balance designed to weigh living animals, with a readout or display relatively unaffected by the pulse or movements of the animal.

CLOSED-LOOP TELEMETRY SYSTEM

  1. A telemetry system which is also used as the display portion of a remote-control system. 2. A system used to check out test vehicle or telemetry performance without radiation of radio-frequency energy.

MACROANALYTICAL BALANCE

A relatively large type of analytical balance that can weigh loads of up to 200 grams to the nearest 0.1 milligram.

DIAL WEIGHT

A weight piece that acts on the invariable arm of an analytical balance and is added or removed from outside the case by a weight-lifting dialing system.

COUNTERWEIGHT

  1. A device which counterbalances the original load in elevators and skip and mine hoists, going up when the load goes down, so that the engine must only drive against the unbalanced load and overcome friction. 2. Any weight placed on a mechanism which is out of balance so as to maintain static equilibrium. Also known as counterbalance; counterpoise.
