"un pesafiltro con tapa previamente tarado y con capacidad para 50 m..." doesn't sound like just a weight to me.
"Pesafiltro metálico o de vidrio con tapadera, y con una superficie
útil que permita un reparto de la muestra de 0,3 g/cm 3 , como máximo. ... " again, a container of some sort, with a top...
(Also, it's "pesa-", not "pisa-".)
I get the noun as "el pesafiltros".
There are references to "weighing paper" used to line a balance when weighing chemicals, but this would not be made of glass or aluminum (which refs are seen on the net for the composition of a "pesafiltros" as well.
"immediately cover the Erlenmeyer flask with a watch glass..." http://www.hmso.gov.uk/si/si1991/Uksi_19910973_en_4.htm

(Sorry to be so pedantic, but I got kind of interested! I never did well in chemistry class, though...)
