From laboratory research and development to pharmaceutical production plants, Rice Lake provides high-quality measurement solutions.

In pharmaceutical settings, accurate weighment is critical. From precision balances, test weights and bench scales to floor scales designed for large-scale material handling, Rice Lake offers a broad selection of weighing products ideal for the pharmaceutical industry.

Precision Balances

When precision laboratory measurement is needed, Rice Lake’s TP Series compact tuning fork balance provides portable precision weighing. The TP Series balance is designed with mono-metal tuning fork sensor technology for exceptional stability and remarkable response time. Class II, NTEP Certified TP Series balances not only have a quick response time but are also ideal for pharmaceutical applications requiring weighing in grams, milligrams and pharmaceutical counting.

The TS Series tuning fork balance offers a polished stainless steel housing and exceptional durability for laboratory environments. An IP65 rating means this balance protects electronic components against the ingress of dust and liquids that can happen from spills and splashes. The smooth, continuous lines of the TS design make cleanup effortless.

The Cubis modular system from Sartorius® offers a selection of display and control units, weighing modules and draft shields. Cubis systems combine any number of these modules to achieve the best laboratory balance for pharmaceutical applications. Cubis systems meet advanced pharmaceutical compliance including user/password management for security, audit trail function logs and integrated bi-memory.

GF-P Series balances from A&D Weighing® offer pill counting features, which comply with Handbook 44 requirements. A fast, super hybrid sensor (SHS) provides ultimate response speed. An IP54 splash-proof operator keyboard protects against dust and spills, and its stainless steel weigh pan assures easy cleaning. The GF-P Series meets GLP/GMP/ISO compliance and is NTEP Certified and Pharmacopia approved.

Test Weights and Calibration Services

Rice Lake offers individual weights and weight kits for precision laboratory applications with OIML and ASTM Classifications. ASTM Class weights are designed for calibrating Class I and Class II balances and Class 4, 5 and 6 weights. These ultra-accurate test weights are ideal for precision laboratory use and force measurement. OIML Class weights are designed specifically for calibrating balances and weights, laboratory use and as mass standards. Rice Lake’s high-precision calibration weights provide ultimate accuracy and easy handling.

Rice Lake’s metrology laboratories guarantee a four-day calibration service turnaround and have accreditation from NVLAP and A2LA. An expert metrology staff continues to participate in NIST/OWM training seminars, regional metrology groups such as MidMap and round-robin metrology programs with state labs. Rice Lake’s cutting-edge calibration lab has direct traceability to NIST.

Bench Scales

The BenchMark™ HE is a stainless steel, tabletop bench scale capable of weighing laboratory equipment and product vessels. Reliable and repeatable in hostile and washdown environments, the BenchMark HE is available in almost any size or capacity. Its stainless steel construction and IP69K hermetically sealed load cells stand up to chemical, pharmaceutical and medical processing applications and washdown needs after use.

Floor Scales

From chemical hostile environments and sanitary pharmaceutical production lines to product quality control areas, RoughDeck® floor scales are designed specifically for corrosion resistance and long life. RoughDeck’s simple, stationary deck and durable top plate provide legendary RoughDeck reliability. The RoughDeck HE and AutoLift HE, RoughDeck QC and RoughDeck SD floor scales feature washdown capabilities for varying degrees of hostile, sanitary and wet environments.

From laboratory research and development to product production plants, Rice Lake provides high-quality measurement solutions ideal for sanitary and precision requirements in the pharmaceutical industry.
