Detecto's compact and rugged 1100 Series Heavy-Duty Bench Scales offer high accuracy and sturdy construction with minimum scale maintenance, due in part to their thermal elastic temperature-compensating springs and oil dashpot which are standard and add long-term accuracy.
The underlying principle of the 1100 Series is precision engineering, with every component part specially designed to ensure sustained, long-term accuracy under prolonged usage. Special tip locks and bearings prevent platform tipping which avoids pivot and bearing abuse and assures accurate long life weighing. Side checks bring the platform to rest quickly, providing accurate readings from the large 19" (483mm) dial. Zero adjustment is located on the top outside of the dial housing making it readily accessible.
