Digital floor scales with a rugged design

By Chemical Engineering |

The PowerDeck digital floor scale (photo) combines this company’s Powercell digital load-cell technology with a rugged platform design. This new design aims to eliminate the reliability issues typically associated with floor scales and the associated analog load cells, cables and junction boxes, which can lead to weighing errors and disruptions in production. The PowerDeck includes realtime guidance that alerts operators when a product has been improperly loaded and provides instructions for optimal load placement, helping to avoid uneven filling spills and inaccurate batches. The durable platform can handle variable batch sizes and accuracy requirements. By removing the junction box and making the system fully waterproof, maintenance costs are greatly reduced. The system also includes realtime alerts for environmental hazards, such as debris, shock-loading and temperature fluctuations. — Mettler Toledo, Columbus, Ohio
