Mass comparison: 5 kg laboratory balance

Kari Riski

Research output: Book/ReportReport


A comparison M4 of a 5 kg balance was carried out in June 2003 by the Centre for Metrology and Accreditation (MIKES). Six participants from four accredited calibration laboratories from Finland participated in the comparison. The reference laboratory was MIKES. The comparison was made with a high resolution (d = 1 mg) laboratory balance. The measurements were made at MIKES. 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. All results were in agreement with the results of MIKES.
