BL Series Platform Balances
Highly Stable Platform Balances for Routine Weighing


BL Series Balance Model Lineup

Shimadzu’s BL series are electro-magnetic platform balances. Due to high stability, a quick response, a compact body, and time-saving features, the BL series are perfect for routine weighing applications.

BL Series models:

  • BL-H platform balances, maximum weight range 220 g to 3.2 kg

  • BL-S platform balances, maximum weight range 320 g to 3.2 kg

Quick Response and High Stability

The BL series balances provide a very quick response, making repeated weighing efficient. The high stability of the weighing response produces steady readings even under poor environmental conditions.

Compact, Electro-magnetic Balance

The highly precise electro-magnetic system inside the BL series of platform balances is just as compact as a portable scale.

Time-Saving Additional Features

The analog bar display shows remaining weighing capacity at a glance, which is especially helpful when filling containers to a certain weight. Piece counting is enabled at the touch of a single key and allows quantity to be read as soon as parts are placed on the pan.

Optional Electronic Printers

The BL series platform balances are compatible with the EP-100 and EP-110 electronic printers, which allow quick printing of weighing reports.
