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.

Phosphorus control protects surface waters
Phosphorus is the decisive factor for excessive algae and plant growth in water bodies, that’s why quality standards require reductions in the amount of phosphorus released from wastewater treatment plants into rivers and lakes. In recent years, the outlet limit values have not only been reduced on national levels. Depending on the vulnerability of ecosystems, especially low target values have been defined on regional levels. Examples are regional values for Lake Constance, the Baltic Sea or the Colorado...
The Secret to Quality Food Products
Quality is everything when it comes to food, and accurate moisture control is essential to quality. Decrease spoilage, wasted products and lost profits by making sure you’re accurately monitoring the moisture content of your food products. Join us July 17-19 in Chicago, IL at the International Food Technologists Annual Meeting & Expo (IFT), booth 4164, and see the difference that an accurate, user friendly and reliable moisture, solids or ash analyzer can make to your quality control process. Why...
PureAire Oxygen Analyzers & Oxygen Monitors for Nitrogen Generators
Nitrogen has many uses in industrial applications where oxidation would be undesirable. From carbonizing beer to preserving food, reducing fire danger, and cleaning equipment, nitrogen is a safe,inexpensive gas. For companies that need a steady supply of nitrogen gas, nitrogen generators work well. Learn about the uses of nitrogen generators and why you should use oxygen monitors in environments where nitrogen gas is created. How Nitrogen Generators Work Nitrogen for packaging works well in the food and...
FTIR gas analyzers support management of fire at UK waste facility
The capability to convene a multi-agency Air Quality Cell (AQC) was established in England in 2009 following the Buncefield Oil Storage Depot incident. A review of this event identified the need to rapidly co-ordinate the acquisition, analysis and interpretation of air quality data in major incidents. Arrangements have been made in England to bring together experts from the Environment Agency (EA), Public Health England (PHE) and the UK Meteorological Office on a 24/7, 365 days and year basis to form an AQC for...
Measurement of TOC in Perfluorochemical (PFOS) Solution
PFOS is an extremely stable compound with strong carbon - fluorine bonds, and reports of its accumulation in wildlife and the environment have attracted international attention and concern, leading to the designation of PFOS as a persistent organic pollutant (POP).The persistent nature of PFOS prevents oxidative decomposition using wet chemical oxidation TOC analyzers; however, the Shimadzu high-temperature catalytic combustion TOC analyzer quantitatively recovers PFOS with high sensitivity and accuracy. Here, we...
