Mass comparison: 300 g laboratory balance

Kari Riski

Research output: Book/ReportReport


A comparison of a 300 g laboratory balance (d = 0,1 mg) was carried out in December 2010 at the Centre for Metrology and Accreditation (MIKES). Seven participants; one from MIKES and six from four accredited calibration laboratories; took part in the comparison. Reference values were calculated as weighed means of all participants. The measurements were made at MIKES. The loading points were given in advance by MIKES. Otherwise the participants calibrated the balance according to their own measurement procedures using their own weights. Measurement results of the laboratories were taken from calibration certificates. The results were in agreement with the reference value.
