SKS now offers a variety of Ohaus digital scales to meet your laboratory, academic, forensic, industrial, and all other general needs. Choose from our variety of digital scales ranging in size from pocket scales to precision moisture analyzers, from compact scales to bench scales:

Digital Scales

Bench scales

Moisture analyzer

Pocket scales

Analytical balances

Triple-beam balances

Floor scales

Dial-type and pull-type spring scales

and many more...

Many of the scales are portable for your ease of use. Special scale applications simplify complex laboratory measurements and help reduce errors in manual calculations. Choose from our selection of digital scales to find the scale which best fits your needs!

Common scales specifications and terms explained: Maximum Capacity: This is the maximum weight a scale can tolerate. If the weight is exceeded during operation (and even when shut-off) the load cell (see below) can be damaged.

Accuracy (or Readability): Sometimes referred to as resolution. This establishes how accurate the scale is, because of it's ability to read the most minute weight. In other words, the scale's smallest measurable weight. For example, 0.002g Accuracy: 0.002, 0.004, 0.006, 0.008, 0.010, 0.012... OR 0.05 Accuracy: 0.05, 0.10, 0.15, 0.20, 0.25, 0.30, 0.35, 0.40, 0.45, 0.50...

Load Cell (or Strain Gauge): The load cell is essentially the heart of any scale. These series of sensors convert the asserted weight to electrical signals for digital calculations.

Repeatability: This refers to a scale's consistency to repeatedly measure the same weights respectively while zeroing after each measurement.

glass vials

Our new variety of clear and colored glass vials provide the ideal packaging for lab samples, scientific testing or general containment. These vials prove ideal for containing specimen, components, samples, and small parts.

Glass vials with Black Bulb Dropper - These vials come with a dropper for simple sample measurement and distribution. The clear glass allows ease of visibility, while the colored glass deters ultraviolet specimen degradation. Both types of glass provide higher insular qualities than most plastic vials.

Glass vials with Black Cone lined Caps - These vials come with black cone lined caps to ensure a positive seal. The clear glass allows ease of visibility, while the colored glass deters ultraviolet specimen degradation. Both types of glass provide higher insular qualities than most plastic vials.

Glass vials with Black Polypro Foil lined Caps - These vials come with black polypro foil lined caps to ensure a positive seal. The clear glass allows ease of visibility, while the colored glass deters ultraviolet specimen degradation. Both types of glass provide higher insular qualities than most plastic vials.

Glass vials with Orifice Reducers and Black lined Caps - These vials come with an orifice reducer and black lined caps to ensure a positive seal. The clear glass allows ease of visibility, while the colored glass deters ultraviolet specimen degradation. Both types of glass provide higher insular qualities than most plastic vials.

Glass vials with Black Phenolic Cone lined Caps - These vials come with a black phenolic cone lined caps to ensure a positive seal. The clear glass allows ease of visibility, while the colored glass deters ultraviolet specimen degradation. Both types of glass provide higher insular qualities than most plastic vials.

Glass vials with PE stopper - These vials come with a PE stopper to ensure a positive seal. The clear glass allows ease of visibility, while the colored glass deters ultraviolet specimen degradation. Both types of glass provide higher insular qualities than most plastic vials.
