Stainless steel wash down scales are available from Central Carolina Scale. We have several bench scale models that are designed to withstand the rigors of frequent moisture contact and industrial cleaning processes from various scale manufacturers.
Not all washdown scales are created equally. Some are NTEP legal for trade and some are not. Ingress protection (IP) ratings identify protection levels against the ingress of solid objects, dust and water. The first number following IP identifies the level of protection against solid objects including dust. The second number is the level of protection against various forms of moisture. From bench scales, floor scales and balances to in-motion weighing and checkweighers, we carry many food service scales with varying IP ratings to meet virtually any washdown need.
Ingress Protection Ratings
IP69K–dust tight and withstands high-pressure, high-temperature water.
IP68–dust tight and protects against water while submerged at 15 meters deep.
IP67–dust tight and protects against water while submerged at one meter deep.
IP66–dust tight and protects against high-pressure water projected from any direction.
IP65–dust tight and protects against low-pressure water projected from any direction.
NEMA Type 4 and Type 4X are equivalent to IP66.
We offer a full line of weighing and measurement equipment designed to meet the rigorous demands and unique cleaning needs of washdown environments. Our selection of stainless steel "waterproof" scales are for applications requiring sanitary conditions, including food and chemical processing facilities, laboratories and medical environments.
Rice Lake’s CW-90X over/under checkweigher is rugged and durable. Its design boasts an IP69K rating for both the load cell and indicator. The CW-90X is constructed of 304 stainless steel for ultimate corrosion resistance and strength, and its piezo keypad withstands sharp knife point contacts. Its standard GORE™ membrane vent adds even more moisture protection.
The Benchmark™ HE bench scale includes an IP69K hermetically sealed stainless steel load cell, and a specially designed base isolates the cell from any potential shock or overload. Its durable, 304 stainless steel design is enhanced with non-skid support feet and a leveling bubble to guide setup.
The Versa-portion® bench scale features a stainless steel construction, an IP68 rating and a broad range of useful features. With capacities from six to 60 pounds, the Versa-portion is perfect for food processing, hygienic medical settings and everything in between.
