Torsion Balance Vintage Industrial Pharmaceutical Scale Scientific Torsion Scale
Style DLT-2-1 Industrial Décor Laboratory

A great vintage industrial piece from the pharmaceutical industry. Charming dark grey metal cabinet torsion balance for displaying open or closed. Great mid century industrial décor look.

The cabinet measures 11 inches wide by 5 ½ inches deep (which includes the front dials) and
8 inches high. The scale weight about 8 lbs or 4 kg. It comes with two round stainless steel pans. The balance has a small bubble level on the lower right hand side.

This Torsion scale is in great condition. The cabinet is lovely with no dents, just a few surface marks to tell its history. The front dials move smoothly. A service sticker on the back says it was last calibrated Nov. 8, 1983. Although the balance appears to be in fine working condition we don’t know enough about them to guarantee its accuracy.

The Torsion Balance Co. was incorporated in 1902 becoming a leader in making reliable precision instruments for the pharmaceutical, dairy and textile industries. This vintage Torsion Balance was probably made in the 1950s and was still in use in 1983.

Labels on the back read:
Style DLT 2-1, No.C 3705,
The Torsion Balance Co. (Canada) Ltd.
Montreal, Quebec, Canada
Cap. 120 gr
