WeighSouth WBT-5001 delivers powerful weighing performance in a portable digital scale that operates on either AC Adapter or 8 AA batteries. This scale can either be plugged into a power receptacle and operate on AC adapter in the school classroom or if you are in the field collecting sample the scale runs on batteries. The WBT5001 weigh up to 5000 grams and increments in 0.1 gram graduations. The large 7" x 6" stainless steel platform is removable for easy cleaning.
This digital scale intuitive 5 button design offers flexibility for a diverse range of weighing applications yet extremely simple to use. A simple press of the units key changes the unit of measurement from grams > kilograms > ounces, etc.
The tare key allows you tare out the weigh of a container so you can determine the net weight of contents only. When you press the tare whatever weight value shown on the scale's display is set to 0.
This comes in handy when measuring components of a mixture.
Say you wanted to mix a 1000 gram solution of 10% salt and 90% water by weight. It's simple - place container on the platform and press the TARE key, now add salt to the container until the display reads 100.0 grams and again press the TARE key so the display now reads 0.0 grams. Now add water to the container that already has the salt in it until the display reads 900.0 grams. It's that simple. You can tare multiple times providing you never have more than 5000 grams on the weighing platform.
Science school teachers attempting to outfit their science classroom with new digital scales on a limited budget select WeighSouth WBT5001 since it provides exceptional usability without sacrificing weighing performance.
