Q.What kind of standards should be set up when inspecting the performance of a balance? Please give me actual examples.
This question is frequently asked. Criteria used when inspecting the performance of a balance is basically determined in advance by the user himself/herself, and are not numerical values that must be matched to. Even assuming two or more balances of exactly the same model, the control values of each respective balance will differ according to what the user is using the balance for, circumstances in which it is controlled, and various other factors. Be that as it may, if the criteria are too strict, this would necessitate more frequent calibration. Alternatively, if they are too lax, this would mean that the basic high performance of the balance will not be sufficiently used. So, Shimadzu has established general criteria that it recommends.
