Key Features

  • Metric and U.S. customary grip-handle test weight for testing field standards and industrial devices
  • Painted cast iron weight has chip-resistant paint that resists corrosion and conforms to NIST Handbook 105-1 standard
  • Sealable adjusting cavity for adjusting total weight
  • Meets National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Class F specification for commercial "Legal-for-Trade" weighing operations

Product Description

The Rice Lake grip-handle test weight is constructed of painted cast iron, is available in metric and U.S. customary (also referred to as English and avoirdupois), meets National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Class F specifications, and is designed for testing field standards and industrial devices. The sealing cavity can be used to adjust the total weight. Painted cast iron weight has a chip-resistant paint that is corrosion-resistant and conforms to NIST Handbook 105-1 standards. A sealable adjusting cavity allows the weight to be fractionally adjusted to meet individual specifications. The weight meets NIST Class F specification for commercial "Legal-for-Trade" weighing operations often required by state and local weights and measures officials, device installers and service technicians. Class F weights can be used to test the accuracy of most Class III scales, all scales of Class III L or IIII, and scales not marked with a class designation. NIST Class F weights are manufactured to specifications of NIST HB-105-1.

Calibration weights are used to measure the weight or mass of an object using a balance or scale, or to calibrate other weights or instruments. Calibration weights can be certified or uncertified. Certified weights meet strict guidelines for accuracy and can usually be recertified. Certified weights are used in labs where a high degree of accuracy and repeatability is required. Uncertified weights are used where a lower degree of accuracy is required, including student laboratories, rough weighting operations, and measuring force. Hooked and slotted weights are often used to measure pressure, torque, and tensile strength, and to demonstrate basic laws of physics. Calibration weights differ from lab weights, which are general purpose weights used to hold an object in place, similar to a paperweight.

Science education products incorporate applied math and science principles into classroom projects. Teachers in pre-K, elementary, and secondary classrooms use science education kits and products alongside science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) curriculum to demonstrate STEM concepts and real-world applications through hands-on activities. Science education projects include a broad range of activities, such as practical experiments in engineering, aeronautics, robotics, energy, chemistry, physics, biology, and geology.

Rice Lake Weighing Systems manufactures weight-related and process-control equipment for use in research, scientific, and quality control labs. The company, which was founded in 1946 and is headquartered in Rice Lake, WI, meets International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9001:2008 standards, and is accredited by the National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP) to ISO/IEC 17025:2005.
