OHAUS   TRIPLE  BEAM  BALANCE  SCALE



TRIPLE BEAM BALANCE SCALE     OHAUS, Florham Park, NJ / USA   (1980)
********************************************************************
Scale-1 = 0 ... 500 g ;  Scale-2 = 0 .. 100 g ;  Scale-3 = 0 .. 10 g

This METRIC  » Precision-Scale «  weights here a souvenir:

             A can of  "BERLINER LUFT"  = 28.9 Gram

This OHAUS SCALE  is the classic weighing instrument used in science
laboratories all over the world. Magnetically damped; 610 g capacity
0.1 g sensitivity; die cast aluminum body  w. 3 aluminum alloy beams
with sliding weights. Capacity is expandable to 2610 g with a weight
set, attachable to the hooks at the end of the beam.

                    HOW MECHANICAL SCALES WORK ...

?? What is the  "Extension-Weight-Set"  for an additional  + 1 kg ??
====================================================================
EXPERIMENT:
                 150 g  Extension-Weight represents  500 g WEIGHT
             2 x 150 g         - " -     SET  -"-   1000 g WEIGHT
             4 x 150 g         - " -     -"-  -"-   2000 g WEIGHT

For example:  MADE AN EXTENSION-WEIGHT-SET OUT OF WASHERS ...

  

2 x 500 g WEIGHTS are in balance with the  2 x 150 g  EXTENSION-SET.
- When not used, it rests in the groove of the OHAUS under the beam.

If the + 2 kg Weight-Capacity is needed: Make Extension-Weights with
hooks on both sides to be chainable - Think in its limited height!
