On 27 – 30 March 2018, the first in Poland RADWAG-manufactured AVK-1000 automatic vacuum mass comparator was installed in Central Office of Measures in Warsaw.
The comparator enables comparison of up to 6 prototypes of max 1kg mass with readability of d = 0.1 µg. A specially designed vacuum chamber enables carrying out measurements in a vacuum of 10-6 mbar capacity or in atmosphere containing noble gases.
Due to the application of our vacuum mass comparator, Central Office of Measures is now ready to carry out activities concerning re-definition of the kilogram that will take place in 2019.
Central Office of Measures in Warsaw, owing to the purchase of AVK-1000 mass comparator, is now one of the top national metrological institutes in the field of mass measurement in the world.
RADWAG has reached the next level of technological advancement and strengthened its position among the top worldwide manufacturers of weighing equipment.
