- Calibration: setting or correcting the scale
- Checkweigher: scales used to verify predetermined weight within certain limits
- Divisions: defines the amount of scale increments
- Drift: when outside influences, such as ambient temperatures, impact the scale’s performance, the weight number can shift continuously
- Hysteresis: the maximum difference between load cell output readings for the same applied load
- Load Cell: creates a signal relative to the weight or force that’s applied. Load cell types are beam, S-beam, platform, compression and tension.
- Stabilization Period: the time required to ensure that any further change in the parameter being measured is tolerable
- Tare: resets the displayed weight on the scale back to zero
- Tolerance: amount of error allowed in a scale’s weight value
- Scale Calibration
When it comes to scales, basic rules of calibration are often overlook...

Deck ovens are ubiquitous to pizza operations, but foodservice operato...
