Product Details
  • Advanced Automatic Internal Self Calibration

    With the PGW 453-i you won't have to worry about buying calibration weights to keep your scale in shape. This Adam Equipment balance has automatic internal calibration that uses internal weights to calibrate the scale. The PGW 453i will automatically calibrate with a significant change in temperature, or whenever ya tell it to. This is gonna come in real handy, especially if ya don't like going through the whole calibration process. If ya prefer to calibrate the scale manually with your own weights, you can do that too.

  • Weighing Hook

    Sometimes the thing ya need to weigh just won't fit on the scale's platform. Now that's a problem for most scales, but not the PGW 453i. This scientific scale has a weighing hook built right into the bottom. This hook works by pulling on the weighing platform when an item is hanging from it, just like if ya were to put an item on top of the platform. All ya have to do is uncover the hook, and hang your item from it to weigh.

  • Checkweighing

    Make sure ya get your weights just right with this scientific scale's check weighing feature. When ya weigh in this mode, you can set weight limits for the stuff you're weighing. So, if your sample weight is too low or too high...the PGW-453i will sure let ya know.

  • Density Determination

    This precision balance determine density of both liquids and solids. All ya have to do is enter a couple of parameters into the balance, and the scale will do the rest.

  • Does This Thing Count?

    You bet it does! All ya need to do is weigh a sample amount of pieces, so the PGW can know how much each piece weighs, then start counting. You'll be finished in no time.

  • RS-232 Serial Port

    The PGW453i has an RS232 port built right in. This is important if you're wanting to send your weight readings and other data to an external source like a computer or printer.

  • Totalization

    You can use this feature to repeatedly add the amounts on the scale together. This is a great feature if you need a scale with cumulative weighing for compounding ingredients or check weighing.

  • Percent Weighing

    This feature will let ya compare the weights of your samples against a predetermined reference weight. This can be helpful in weight checking, compounding, formulating and more.

  • Dynamic Weighing

    This precision balance has a really cool dynamic weighing feature. This feature allows you to accurately weigh unstable items by calculating the average weight of what's on the platform.

  • Protective Windscreen

    When you're weighing with high precision scales like this one, even the tiniest breeze can interfere with weight readings. This Adam scale comes with a durable, glass windscreen to keep out those pesky drafts. Oh, and don't worry, this scale makes it easy to put your items on, or take them off, the platform. The top and sides slide all the way back.

  • Bright Backlit Display

    This precision balance has a fancy backlit display to help ya see your weight readings, even in dim lighting. Not only that! This PGW453i's display will tell ya what work mode your using, if the scale is stable or not, the date, the time, which unit you're weighing in, the weight on the scale, and the load percent. What more could ya need to know?!

  • Stainless Steel Platform

    This precision balance has a durable stainless steel weighing platform to make cleanup a breeze. Unlike gold or silver, stainless steel doesn't scratch easily and keeps its shine without rusting or tarnishing.

  • Tare Feature

    The tare button on the front of this digital lab scale can be pressed to "zero out" the weight on the scale. You can then add more weight, and the display will only show the weight of the items you're adding. This sure is useful when ya want to use an expansion scoop to weigh your things, or if ya want to get separate weights of multiple items.

  • Liquid Level Indicator

    This very handy feature helps you quickly and easily get your scale nice and level. A level scale is important for getting the most accurate weight readings. All ya have to do is twist the feet on the bottom of the scale until the spirit bubble is centered within the level.


    When ya get this precision balance, ya need to go over to the Adam Equipment website and register it to receive a three year warranty.
