Guide on Efficient Weighing Workflows in Chemical Industry

Efficient weighing workflows in the 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 Industry

Good 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:

  • Formulation
  • 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

The guide provides practical tips to improve balance operation, streamline processes and enhance productivity - all while staying within tight budget limits and maintaining high quality standards.

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.
