Scales and Balances

Gilson offers a wide selection of precision weighing devices and accessories. Laboratory and field offerings include the latest digital, mechanical, and suspension scales and balances as well as moisture analyzers to precisely measure a wide range of substances. They range from compact benchtop units and portable field instruments to heavy-duty floor models with the capacity to accurately handle samples of varying weights and sizes under virtually any condition.


Scales & Balances
  • Digital Scales and Balances offer fast, accurate weighing with convenient features for storing and reporting data. Select models in a range of capacities designed for sensitive, precision laboratory, or rugged industrial field use. Most models have multiple, selectable weighing units.
  • Mechanical Balances provide reliable weighing in any environment, with low-maintenance operation and several different capacities and readability ranges.
  • Suspension Scales are ideal for weighing large, bulky items when increased capacity is needed. The selection also includes models used for determining the specific gravity of pulps, liquids, and dry solids.
  • Pulp Density / Specific Gravity Scale provides direct values for specific gravity, percent solids, and weight in kilograms. Available in three model types, scale only, scale with stainless steel container, or scale with a plastic container.
  • Ohaus Moisture Analyzers are used to provide precise and accurate laboratory moisture content measurements on nearly any substance.
  • Calibration Weights monitor the performance of weighing devices. They allow easy checks of span and linearity, as well as calibration of mechanical or electronic balances. Classes include ASTM Class 1, ASTM Class 4, NIST Class F, and Ultra Class, with several models to choose from within each class.
  • Weighing and Handling accessories allow convenient collection, transfer, and weight determinations of granular and powdered materials. Scoops, chutes, and pans prevent sample loss and feature rugged construction.
