The 7 Best Triple Beam Balances

video play icon

This wiki has been updated 17 times since it was first published in December of 2018. Triple beam balances are mechanical scales that utilize a fulcrum and work on the physics principle of moments. Since they don't make use of any sensors, electronic components, or batteries, there is almost no chance of them malfunctioning and they are known to be one of the most accurate methods for measuring the mass of an object. On our list you'll find models that fit within every budget. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

December 31, 2018:

We know that most people buy triple beam balances instead of digital scales because they are known to be more accurate and reliable, despite them being significantly larger, heavier, and bulkier. With this in mind, we focused on only selecting models from reputable brands that provide consistent results every time. The only exception to this would the Epic Analytical MB, which is the budget model in the number two slot. While it may not be a smart choice for laboratories that need the utmost accuracy, it is more than suitable for classroom use.
