Infographic: Charge Neutralizing Technology Ensures Accurate Weighing
In Partnership with Labmanager
While static electricity is a common and naturally occurring phenomenon, it can have a variety of detrimental effects in research laboratories, including during the process of analytical weighing. Static electricity can have a negative effect on either the weighing process itself or the results, thus requiring time-consuming material selection or handling procedures to counter these issues.
An analytical balance with integrated electrostatic charge neutralizing technology is a compact and effective solution to address static charges and ensure accuracy for a wide range of analytical weighing applications. Cubis® II analytical and semi-micro balances integrate charge neutralizing technology to achieve accurate weighing performance.
Commonly Asked Questions:
- How does static electricity interfere with the weighing process?
- When a sample or a weighing container gains an electrostatic charge, it can become unstable. This means unstable readings and potential measurement drift, causing inaccurate results.
- How can static electricity be controlled?
- There are various methods used to control static in work environments. Often work areas are equipped with grounding materials to prevent static charges from taking hold. Even anti-static wrist straps can be helpful in a potentially conductive workspace. Ionization is also used, via air ionization, electric ionization, devices, etc.
