High Accuracy Measurements Backed by Outstanding Sensitivity

The BW22KH Precision Scale from Shimadzu provides accurate weighing of tiny samples or particulate matter made possible by its 100 mg division size. Hard-wearing and built for use not just in labs but also even for universities, production houses, or industrial facilities, the Shimadzu BW22KH produces close measurement values, securing cost-efficient weighing for quality control measures, manufacturing purposes, as well as lab tasks. Another option with the same 100 mg division size that you can consider is the the BW12KH Precision Scale from Shimadzu from the same BW-K series. For something that delivers higher readability, you can check the Scout SPX2202 Portable Balance from Ohaus.

Highly Precise Measurement Values for Efficient Sample Weighing

Ensure measurement values that can be replicated throughout your weighing process to obtain credible results and save more time actually analyzing data than re-recording data with the Shimadzu BW22KH lab scale. All thanks to its repeatability of 100 mg, this Shimadzu BW-K model returns high precision sample weighing for routine applications even with multi-users considered. Options with a higher repeatability value include the BW32KS Precision Scale from Shimadzu from the same brand and series.

Versatile Sample Weighing At Any Time or Place

Accommodate 22000 g of substances through this Shimadzu unit constructed with a 345 mm pan. Whether weighing chemicals, liquids, and other sample types or working in the lab or field, this laboratory scale verifies weighing accuracy and precision through its internal calibration feature, freely adjusting in case it is relocated from one area to another. For studies that examine hefty samples but ask for the same readability value as this Shimadzu BW-K model, you may want to settle with the BW32KH Precision Scale from Shimadzu or the Explorer EX35001 High Capacity Precision Scale from Ohaus.

Instrumental Features to Consider

Internal Calibration icon Internal Calibration

This Shimadzu BW-K precision scale comes with an internal calibration feature, adjusting and re-calibrating accordingly to consider deviations in time, stability, temperature, and movement. This supports weighing precision even if the unit is relocated on a regular basis.

ISO compliant icon ISO Compliant

A more effective workflow is right at your hands with this lab scale that generates ISO-compliant reports and heeds to a high quality risk-based management system.

GLP Compliant icon GLP Compliant

Tracking down activity history done for your research or experiment is a piece of cake with this model from Shimadzu as it sends back GLP compliant reports. Running in accordance to GLP criteria, reports printed include time, date, balance ID, and other relevant data, cutting out time previously intended to have these formatted.

GMP Compliant icon GMP Compliant

Perfect for use in processing and testing of manufactured goods, the BW22KH Precision Scale from Shimadzu generates reports compliant to GMP format. No need to reformat as these already show results, operator details, and weighing time, and more.

Alphanumeric LCD icon Alpha Numeric LCD

With the Shimadzu BW22KH lab scale, operational efficiency is improved because weighing results are vividly shown right away through its bright, robust, and perfectly sized Alphanumeric LCD. Even if users are in badly lit workrooms, crisp readout of data is still assured.

Operational Productivity Spelled Out

Faster weighing results for elevated lab output can be achieved using the BW22KH Precision Scale from Shimadzu because it shows weighing values in just 2.0 seconds. Even if the unit does not feature a USB port, quick transfer of results or data to peripheral devices is still possible with its built-in RS-232 port. In addition to these features, this precision balance frees up users' time to focus on other higher prio tasks since this laboratory scale already delivers reports conforming to credible industry regulations such as GMP, GLP, and ISO.

The patented UniBloc (OPF) sensor achieves high-performance, compact size, and durability at the same time. Shimadzu introduced this wire-cut block sensor to high-precision platform balances in 1989. Combination of low-profiled body and large pan is for operator comfort during bulk weighing.

WindowsDirect function

The balance communicates directly to a PC with Windows® applications. No additional software is needed to interface with spreadsheet, database, word processing, and laboratory software. WindowsDirect function works Windows® 95, 98, 2000, NT4.0, Me and XP. PC must be IBM PC/AT compatible.

Superior durability

The simple structure and overload protection mechanism results in maximum durability.

Guaranteed sensitivity

Internal resolution is one digit finer level than display, so even minimum readout is highly reliable and stable.

Selectable weighing modes

Best measurement modes depending on the purpose and environment can be selected with ease.

Built-in calibration weight (BW-K Series only)

BW-K Series is equipped with built-in calibration weight. Operator is released from weight maintenance. A single lever operation is all that is needed to load the weight for calibration.

Analog display modes

Full range

Bar graph clearly indicates the total weight (including the tare) as a portion of the balance capacity.


Select a target weight and tolerance. The display clearly indicates when they are reached.


Set an upper and lower limit. The display continually indicates whether the sample is within the range "Go", over range "HI" or under range "LO." Choose one of the two bar graph display modes.(No signal output)
