Kilogram redefinition Roadmap

Industry News - 03/25/2015

Previously it was stated that the kilogram was the ONLY SI unit represented by a physical international prototype which is housed in France. However, the story of the kilogram is being rewritten. Although the international prototype has served international metrology for over a century it will in all likelihood  be superseded and the roadmap is in place. The standard iridium-platinum metre prototype has been superseded by a more precise definition in terms of the distance travelled at the speed of light for a specific fraction of a second. Similarly proposals have been made to define the kilogram in terms of either the Planck or Avagadro constants. Nevertheless, for the time being, the definition of the kilogram remains “A unit of mass equal to the mass of the international prototype of the kilogram”.


The gram (which is 1/1000th kilogram) was originally defined in 1795 as the mass of one cubic centimeter of water at the melting point of water, making the kilogram equal to the mass of one liter of water. The original prototype kilogram, was manufactured in 1799 and from which the IPK is derived, had a mass equal to the mass of 1.000025 liters of water at 4 °C.

Giant Sting-ray could be a Record Breaker !

Industry News - 03/13/2015

There’s something massive in the water.

Animal expert Jeff Corwin found what might be the world’s biggest stingray in Thailand’s Mae Klong River.

The 14-foot long and 8-foot wide freshwater ray could be the largest freshwater fish ever captured, Corwin said on Facebook.

The giant creature weighs an estimated 700 to 800 pounds, National Geographic reported. That means it would beat out the current record, a Mekong giant catfish that weighs 660 pounds and also live in Thailand.

The catch was filmed for an episode of Corwin’s “Ocean Mysteries.” The nature team measured and microchipped the ray for tracking, and then they released it back into the river.   

Overloading,confirmed as U.K.'s Top Road Offense

Industry News - 02/25/2015

During the fourth quarter of 2014, the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) and Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA) published their annual effectiveness report for 2013/14. The report highlighted that overloading continues to be a serious issue on the UK’s roads....Overloading an issue for LGVs and HGVs
The report, which contains data on vehicle testing and enforcement activity over the last twelve months, shows that overloading of LGVs is still the top offence on UK roads, with both the number of prosecutions and the average fine up on last year. Overloading of HGVs also continues to be an issue, being the fifth most common offence for prosecution during the same period.

Scales and Car Racing

Industry News - 02/18/2015

Another arena where the importance of scales is not realized by the majority of those enjoying the sport is car racing ! while Formula 1 drivers are looking for lightweight and a minimum weight requirement of 1415 lb. (642 kg.), NASCAR has it's own regulations putting the overall weight is sitting at 3450 lb. (1565 kg.) the Gen 6 cars have actually been trimmed by 160 lb; specifically 100 lb on the right and 60 lb on the left. Minimum driver weight has also been reduced to 180 lb from 200 lb. 

Scales referred to as racing scales, wheel weighers, portable scales, or weight distribution scales are used widely in the racing industry. There are various, yet similar models on the market today including Intercomp and CAS 

Tony Stewart Flagged for "Weighty" Issue

Industry News - 02/18/2015

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) Tony Stewart opened Speedweeks with a weighty - and heated - issue.

Stewart was visibly upset Friday as he stormed through the garage after getting black flagged for failing to step on a scale before getting behind the wheel.

Stewart was one of 25 drivers practicing for Saturday night's exhibition Sprint Unlimited, but one of just three who didn't weigh in before the session started. Joe Gibbs Racing teammates Denny Hamlin and Kyle Busch also had to return to the scale after getting in their cars.

Stewart didn't heed the initial call.

NASCAR eventually flagged Stewart, ordering him back to the garage to get weighed. But he refused, and when he did finally park his car after his practice run ended, Stewart and crew chief Chad Johnston were called to the NASCAR hauler for what likely was a stern lecture about following the rules.

They emerged 10 minutes later, and Stewart headed straight for the scale.
