Keeping the Cubis II Balance Consistently Clean

It is advised to follow the instructions below daily while switching the weighing task or after the person using it signs out. Put your balance on standby mode, remove the cleaning kit’s equipment, and prepare by getting a paper towel and cleaning supplies set. Our recommendations are 70% ethanol or water. Remove the weighing pan, brush it, and replace it to ensure balanced disassembly and cleaning. To ensure no residue is left in this area, use a soft brush or moist tissue to clean the base plate.

Which Parts of Your Cubis Balance Are Removed for Cleaning?

Thanks to its high-resolution balances, Sartorius offers a high degree of tool-free assembly and disassembly. It is simple to remove all necessary components, including the front shield, base plates, draft shields, and weighing pants of the weighing chamber. In this manner, there are no restrictions on cleaning off the sections and regions that are otherwise difficult to reach. The base plate itself aims to keep liquids and solids out of the interior components.

A cleaning package with practical cleaning tools is included with every Sartorius balance. Included in the kit are a few of the following tools:

– Microfiber tissues: to wipe the palm keys and display

– Forceps: used to remove solids or balance components from the weighing chamber

– Hard and soft brushes for collecting solids in your weighing chambers’ corners

Which Chemicals Are Ideal for Cleaning?

The Cubis II balances are durable devices. The materials are designed to meet the strictest specifications for chemical compatibility and weighing performance. The latter guarantees that pollution won’t quickly throw off your equilibrium, and the spillover can be cleaned using various solvents or cleaning products. Try 70% isopropanol, 70% ethanol, or water to clean the balance.

How to Handle Your Balance Parts?

It is advised to handle the balance carefully to prevent any parts from breaking. Significantly, when the draft shield is uninstalled, its components could easily get damaged. Before you begin cleaning, ensure  adequate space around your balance to safely store the balance’s components and take care of any contamination.
