One possibility you might consider would be to build your own hanging scale.

You can use a high accuracy load cell and appropriate display to achieve the kind of accuracy that USP 41 dictates.
Omega Engineering has a 50 lb load cell, model LCCA-50, that can be connected to their DP25-S display to give you accuracy of 0.037% full scale and linearity of 0.03%.

There are other possible instruments out there.

Another approach that I've used (though not for USP41) is to get a high precision flat balance...then fit a hanging mechanism on it.
The hanging mechanism becomes part of the tare...and you have a hanging scale...but a whole lot more freedom in your choices of styel to meet whatever other requirements you have...HTH

Awesome. Thanks so much. I think your proposal will work for our processes.
