Industries & WorkplacesAlmost every industry you can think of uses scales, lab balances, load cells or test weights in some way. Contact us for expertise and recommendations to help you improve accuracy and efficiency.
Truck Scales - MaintenanceThese guidelines should give you a good idea as to what to look for when looking over your truck scale and interactively developing a preventive maintenance plan along with your local scale dealer
Load Cells - Hermetically SealedTo obtain the ultimate degree of moisture protection, the load cell must be stainless steel and hermetically sealed. Hermetic sealing will ensure the integrity of the strain gauge section of the cell in corrosive or wash down applications.
Load Cells - How To ChooseWill the cell be exposed to dry, wet or airborne chemicals? If chemicals are present, what are they? Will the cell be exposed to wash down cleaning, humid or occasional submersion conditions? If yes, please read this page for more info.
Load Cells - HydraulicHydraulic load cells measure weight as a change in pressure of the internal fluid. Hydraulic load cell applications can include tank, bin, and hopper weighing. In contrast to other solutions, hydraulic load cells are safe from damage caused by lightning strikes or other electrical surges.
