When customers are looking for floor scales, one of the questions that often gets asked revolves around the platform material. If you are a recycling center, you don't necessarily need to buy a SST floor scale. In fact, many customers who are thinking of placing a floor scale partially or completely outdoors purchase a painted steel scale with stainless steel NEMA type enclosures.
Most customers want an accurate floor scale with durable scale deck and a top plate to access junction box components. The junction box inside the scale is actually a very important part of a platform scale. Of course quality load cells are a must along with a robust scale foot in each corner which will allow for scale height adjustment.
Other components often overlooked are lifting holes. If you are planning to move your scale platform around, these holes in the top platter can make it much easier. Are you looking to use the scale platform with a ramp or in the floor? Once you set the scale and get it ready to weigh, it's always a good idea to have your local scale company take calibration weights and test each corner for accurate and consistent readings.
Whether for weighing metals to be recycled or food processing, an accurate and reliable stainless steel floor scale with high accuracy is imperative. Some of the top brands to consider are B-TEK, Rice Lake, and Weigh-Tronix. These scales are known for their easy operation for industrial use. Most of our SS standard size platforms are NTEP certified and offered in a wide variety of sizes and capacities.
The weighing process in the food industry is changing to improve efficiencies and maintain safety. Quality industrial weighing equipment is important for a wide variety of applications in the food and beverage industry. While many of these applications call for higher precision, these scales also need to have certain protection measures in place to ensure day-to-day safety for the maintenance technicians who are maintaining them on a daily basis.
As you can imagine, the food industry has extreme but necessary hygienic standards that require frequent cleaning of
equipment. The scales being used must be washed many times a day to avoid contamination. The same is true of pharmaceutical and medical environments, which need washed down to maintain clean and sterile rooms. The washdown process of a floor scale can be tedious and time-consuming, which is why a close look at the process is essential between you and your scale provider.
