PGW-153i milligram balance with internal motorized calibration offers 150 grams maximum weighing capacity and increments 0.001 grams. Internal calibration software senses temperature changes and quickly calibrates automatically or sets a preset time for your calibrations.

Choose from 17 different units of measures including gram, kilogram, carat, grain, newton, pound, ounce, troy ounce, pennyweight, plus 1 custom weigh unit. PGW electronic balances provide outstanding precision for advanced weighing applications at affordable prices.

PGW precision milligram balances offer the level of performance students and instructors need at the best prices for high school AP studies, teacher prep, and university labs. Die cast aluminum housing, 4 panel glass draft shield and removable metal top, large 4.9 x 5.7 inch weighing pan, brilliant oversized display, and intuitive operation make this digital balance easy to use and highly durable. Innovative features of the PGW balances simplify even your most complex weighing applications.

The PGW balances meet the standards of reliability and quality that Adam’s customers expect. The metal housing is much more rugged than plastic cases and has been designed to divert spills away. The large, stainless steel pan can be removed for easy cleaning or storage.

PGW laboratory balances offer valuable features like track weights of tared objects and their contents. Simply using the tare key, you can automatically track every component of the weighing process, whether you need to know the value of the tared container, the goods it contains, or the total of both together. The PGW’s display can show both the total gross weight and the net weight at the same time when needed.

Quality control checks made simple with the Adam PGW153i. Filling and checking the weight of objects with this balance makes it easy to meet your quality control expectations. Set your own limits and the display will indicate when the weight is too low, too high or on the mark and a selectable warning indicates when you are on target. The software’s true flexibility lets you select one or two target points. Use the capacity tracker to give you a visual perspective of your check weighing.

Weighing and customized units. Up to 17 weighing units are included as standard, offering you the flexibility needed for every laboratory application. One custom unit allows you to perform independent custom calculations. For example; using the PGW to work out a cost per weight reading, or a weight per square meter, gives you added flexibility.

This precision lab balance comes with color coded keys and large LCD display for easy operation.  Brilliant backlit display with 1” high digits and graphic capacity tracker. Two adjustable feet and leveling bubble insures proper and accurate readings. Weigh below hook for weighing hot or magnetic materials plus density and specific gravity measurements (under hook is an optional accessories found in the optional accessories section by scrolling further down).

  • Spacious, easy-to-clean weighing chamber with top access
