Depending on the type of your scale, you will require it to be calibrated from time to time. Typically it is a good idea to have your weighing equipment calibrated every six months or annualy to ensure it's accuracy. Our SANAS accredited calibration laboratory can help with this.

We offer on site calibration as well as a carry in service to have the process performed in our laboratory. Calibration of the instrument is supplemented with an official SANAS calibration ceritifcate which can be retained as proof. All makes and models of weighing instruments are welcome.

All weighing instruments used to weigh goods for sale / purchase are required to be certified in accordance with the legal metrology Act. This process must be repeated every two years to ensure compliance with the act and is closely monitored by government to promote and ensure fair trade.

Failure to do this could result in heavy fines being issued or even seizure of your scales. To remain compliant, you will need the services of an accredited verification laboratory.

As with our calibration services, verification can be performed in a laboratory as well as on site and is supplemented with an official verification certificate. Speak to us today for any more information or a quotation.

Weight Laboratory

In certain environments scale accuracy requirements are becoming more stringent. To make sure your instrument is weighing correctly at all times, we offer our range of test mass pieces. Depending on your application and accuracy needs, you have options ranging from durable cast iron to fine stainless steel weights.

Our mass pieces are OIML certified and are suitable for use in all industries. We currently stock from 1mg to 20kg but are able to source custom weights if need be. Larger mass pieces for testing road weighbridges and larger platform type scales are also available.

Our cast iron options are neat in appearance and are sprayed with black gloss paint giving them a professional finish.

The brass and stainless steel options can be bought loose or come as a set contained within a sturdy aluminium box for users who like everything in its place. Tweezers come standard with smaller weight sets.

Whether you need peace of mind that your instrument is accurate, or know how to calibrate your own instruments and need a mass piece, our comprehensive range of test weights will do the job.

For customers that need SANAS certified weights, we have a laboratory that is equipped to perform SANAS calibration on the mass pieces and issue certifificates.
