Floor scales come in many different packages. The different
elements that make up a floor scale are capacity, type of steel used for
construction, size of the scale itself and also the environment that it is
intended to be used in. If the scale is do be used on the dock to weigh skids
the just about any scale will work, but that same scale may not work in an
environment associated with filling containers with chemicals. For this
environment a scale constructed out of stainless steel may want to be used. A
NEMA 4 stainless steel junction box should also be used in this type of scale.
The load cells may want to be upgraded to hermetically sealed load cells. This
will help protect them from moisture damage due to the wet environment.
Not all floor scales are fully electronic. Flexure base floor
scales are available. These scales have a lever system in them designed to use
steel flexures instead of pivots and bearings. A single load cell in installed
in the flexure base to convert the mechanical energy to electrical energy so
the weight can be displayed on a digital indicator. This scale is useful in
heavy corner loading applications or when shock loading may result from loading
the scale in some applications.
We would be happy
to assist you in choosing the scale that is right for you.
