Scale calibration is the process of checking the accuracy of the scales, ensuring that the weight displayed is accurate and correct. Scale calibration is important in every industry, such as calibration in a lab setting or for the food industry. All industries we service use the service of scale calibration and understand its importance.

What Kinds Of Scales Need To Be Calibrated And What Are The Benefits?

All types of scales need to be calibrated regularly to ensure accurate results. Depending on what industry you’re in, the scales in your lab or office are most likely used daily or at least weekly. Scales such as doctors’ scales will need to be calibrated often as they’re used more often. In addition to this, here at BTS, we understand that lab equipment also needs to calibrate regularly, so along with scales, we calibrate all kinds of lab equipment

Ensuring proper care of your equipment increases longevity and also provides you with the peace of mind that any minor fractures or breaks will be picked up by our team. Having your scales regularly calibrated is a great way to fix equipment before it breaks. When using measuring equipment so often, small brakes are often overlooked or not even noticed. Ensuring that your scales are calibrated regularly is a great way to fix equipment before it breaks, saving money in the long run.

No matter what industry you’re in, being able to save time and money is a bonus. With inaccurate scales, you’re provided with inaccurate results, which leads to needing to repeat measuring and having to complete tasks, taking up your time and potentially costing money.

Inaccurate Results

Discovering that you have inaccurate results is more than frustrating. Not only does this mean you need to complete the task again, but you also have wasted products, time and money. Having your scales calibrated regularly is a great way to keep on top of accurate results. If you leave your scales to be calibrated at a later date or continue to put them off, it’s hard to know which results are accurate and that is incorrect.

Inaccurate results are also misleading, specifically for those within a laboratory environment. Having misleading results is the opposite of what you’re trying to achieve. When working in a lab, everything needs to be accurate, so calibrated scales are imperative.

Inefficient Work Environment

Being efficient in a work environment is a great way to ensure you have proper use of your time and those around you. It’s important to understand that scales play an integral part in this. If your equipment isn’t working as it should be, it makes it nearly impossible to work efficiently within your work environment.

BTS has several locations across the USA. If you need to have your scales calibrated, we have facilities in San Diego, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Arizona, Nevada and Utah.

Along with having your scales calibrated, BTS also offers the service of weight calibration in Los Angeles. Weight calibration is a crucial step when calibrating your in-house calibration equipment. Like scales, weights can get damaged over time, so it’s imperative to keep on top of calibration to ensure accuracy.

How Often Should I Have My Scales Calibrated?

This is a great question and one we get all the time. This depends on how often you use your scales and what they’re used for. An example of this is if you only use your scales every few months, they’ll have a lesser need to be calibrated as opposed to scales that are used daily. Keeping track of when your scales were last calibrated is imperative, using a spreadsheet or document is a great way to know when your scales are due for their next calibration.
