The purpose of this guide is to identify most common factors affecting weighing accuracy and to explain the basic rules of weighing the right way. more
Guide on Efficient Weighing Workflows in Chemical Industry
The guide explores six common lab workflows in the chemical industry where weighing plays an integral role: Formulation, moisture analysis (loss on drying/ignition), particle size analysis/distribution, density determination, sample preparation for titration, and preparation of reference substances for HPLC or GC.
Efficient Weighing Workflows in the Chemical IndustryGood analytical results start with a good weighing process. The free weighing guide focuses on optimizing 6 common lab workflows in the chemical-industry where weighing plays an integral role:
- Moisture Content, Loss on Drying (LoD), Loss on Ignition (LoI)
- Particle Size analysis and distribution
- Density determination of solids and porous or viscous materials
- Sample preparation for titration
- Preparation of reference substances for HPLC or GC analysis
Weighing is the first step in virtually any analysis. Therefore, optimizing the process - for example, weighing directly into tare containers - has a positive impact for subsequent steps. Likewise, errors or unmet standards that remain unaddressed at this stage can multiply down the line, causing rework, costly lost batches, or consumer liability.
