Environmental Testing Equipment: Laboratory Balances for Environmental Sciences
What are Environmental Sciences?
Environmental science is the study of the earth’s environment. This includes a wide range of fields such as biology, ecology, chemistry, geology – and more. Environmental scientists analyze samples from the environment to determine their quality and measure their matter. From their findings, they are then able to understand the earth’s system, make predictions about environmental shifts and global warming, and work to find solutions to environmental problems. A vital piece of environmental testing equipment for environmental science is the laboratory balance.
This article will explore the different areas of environmental science and how laboratory weighing balances can assist in each area.
Weighing Scale for Chemistry
Chemistry applications, such as environmental chemistry require exact measurements of small quantities of matter and therefore a balance that provides extremely precise readabilities is crucial. Semi-micro and analytical balances from Precisa offer the precision and readability needed for chemistry weighing.

Ecology is a branch of biology that studies organisms and their surroundings. Ecology is useful to agriculture as it can advise farmers on how to keep soil healthy.
Precisa has a wide range of balances that can be used as ecological scales: analytical balances, precision balances, moisture analyzers. Each instrument assists in ecological research and plays a vital role in agriculture to ensure optimal soil condition.
To find out more about how Precisa can assist in ecology and soil testing, read our previous article: Measure and Determine Soil Moisture Content using the Gravimetric Method.
Waste Treatment: Sewage Analysis with Precisa
Quality control in wastewater treatment requires laboratory balances and moisture analyzers. For wastewater to be treated sufficiently, it is essential to perform sewage analysis to determine the moisture content. Precisa’s range of moisture analyzers provide the most accurate measurements and results of moisture content. Precisa excels with a wide variety of moisture analyzers, which meet the highest requirements in research, production, and quality control.
