1 Monitor the temperature
If the temperature differs between the weights and the balance, wait to calibrate until the weights adjust to the same temperature as the balance.
2 Handle with care
Handle weights with gloves or tweezers to help protect the surface from fingerprints, dirt or lint.
3 Keep them clean
If dust or fingerprints are presenton the weight, use a soft brush to remove them before starting the calibration process.
4 Store in proper case
Always store weights in a protective lined case. Even small dust particles on the weights can affect calibration results on highly sensitive balances.
5 Certify for traceability
If your lab applications require traceability, calibration weights can be sent to an outside facility to be certifed to a master set of weights.
