The Undestroyable 520 PHASTbloc Balance

Precisa’s 520 PHASTbloc™ precision cell is a force to be reckoned with. Combining the advantages of conventional weighing cells with monolithic weighing cells, this flexible and cost-effective weighing cell packed a powerful punch when a 1kg weight was dropped on it from a height of 20 cm.

In this video, a series 520 PB 220A Analytical Balance with 0.0001g (0.1mg) readability and a maximum weighing capacity of 220 g, shows what happens when a weight of 1kg is dropped on it from 20 cm, not once but three times. A robust analytical balance, the 520 PB took it all in its stride and continued to perform within its technical specifications. A fine example of Swiss technology at its very best.
