The Ohaus TP2611 Triple Pro mechanical triple beam balance has a capacity of 2610g and an accuracy of 0.1g (often known as readability). The balance is operated by positioning the 10g, 500g, and 100g sliding weights (often known as riders or poises) along the three notched, tiered beams. It has a spring-loaded tare adjustment to prevent accidental changes to the setting and obtain precise results, and a rod and clamp assembly for below-balance weighing to decide specific gravity. The built-in storage lock secures moving pieces to prevent damage all over transport and storage, and an integrated security slot for locks and cables safeguards the balance from unauthorized use or theft. A covered compartment at the base of the balance stores the included three-piece mass set when not in use. The stainless steel weighing pan resists corrosion from spills of most sample materials. The balance is manufactured to ISO 9001:2000 standards and, when used according to manufacturer’s recommendations, it is covered by a 10-year warranty against defects in workmanship or materials.

Balances are measuring instruments used to decide the mass of an object, at the same time as scales are used to measure the weight of an object. The measurement results from balances are most often regarded as to be more precise compared to results from scales. Mechanical balances are the simplest type of balance, and use a lever and slide to indicate the measurement. Conventional balances are commonly used in offices, the jewelry industry, and in kitchens, and display results digitally, but are less precise than analytical balances. Analytical balances measure to a high degree of precision and accuracy (0.0001g or better), and display results digitally. These balances have a cover with doors to prevent dust and airflow from affecting the measurement. Moisture balances analyze moisture content in a material sample, the usage of infrared or halogen heat sources to dry the sample and then calculate the moisture content from the before- and after-drying weight, and display results digitally, on the balance, or transfer the information for display on a pc.
Ohaus manufactures scales and balances for laboratory, educational, retail, food, and jewelry applications. The company, which was once founded in 1914, is headquartered in Parsippany, NJ.
