Don't let static charges disrupt your weighing accuracy

Electrostatic Charges During Weighing

Electrostatically charged samples or containers can be difficult to weigh. Static charges can cause unstable balance readings and measurement drift, leading to slow and inaccurate weighing results. Understanding what causes electrostatic charges during weighing, and how to avoid or eliminate them, is critical to avoiding disruption to weighing processes.

This white paper covers everything a balance user needs to know about electrostatic charges during weighing:

  • What causes electrostatic charges and how long they will be present;
  • The effects of static charges on the weighing process and how to recognize them;
  • How to prevent or reduce electrostatic forces; and
  • A comparison of solutions for detection and elimination of electrostatic charges.
