White Paper: Influences on Mass Calibration - Minimizing Uncertainties
This white paper explains how to make accurate daily weight calibration measurements by minimizing the associated uncertainty. The extent to which a number of physical influences can affect the weighing performance - and therefore the measurement accuracy - is often under-estimated or unaccounted for. This can lead to uncertainties which do not fulfil the requirements of the applied regulations. In order to achieve reliable and accurate mass measurement, environmental influences sources should be analyzed, so that influences can be reduced where possible. Recognize how to control or correct for the effects of these influences (e.g. air buoyancy correction) in order to generate higher accuracy measurements with confidence. This leads to generation of more reliable calibration results, and full compliance with industry regulations.
