Top refrigeration scales are useful tools for HVAC technicians to use when charging or recovering refrigerants. They are mainly comprised of a sturdy and non-slip platform to weigh the refrigerant, a display to see readings and a connector and case to carry it around. The precision of a refrigerant scale depends on the user; you can look for ones that measure up to the 10th of a pound or higher, depending on how precise you are.
