Kinds of Measuring Scales

Monday, June 22, 2009

Measurement of weight is a common and popular type of measure required in all types of business and industrial activities. It is very difficult to find any company in US that does not uses industrial scales. The transportation cost of goods is almost ascertained by the weight of the goods, hence it is very important for industrial units to know weight accurately or else this may reflect badly on their cost patterns. Measurement of weight accurately is required for both while receiving the raw materials from suppliers as well as while sending the processed goods to the buyers. Hence, weighing scales need to be owned or rented by the industrial units. There are different kinds of weighing scales like: platform scales, floor scales, spring scales, bench scales, digital scales and counting scales.

AD EK1 series balance platform scale Platform scales are one of the most commonly used weighing scales particularly used by industrial concerns that ship their products. Platform scales have a flat surface on which the goods can be kept and an attachment wherein the digital display shows the weight. Platform scales are used particularly to measure large tons of cargo. They have versatile uses and are used in almost every segment of market to weigh, mix and even for filling host of items. Their popularity has led to many innovations and there are different kinds of platform scales like Low Capacity Scales, portable scales, standalone platform scales, pit- installed scales, hazardous area scales, mobile platform scales, stainless steel scale etc. They perform one of the major functions of measuring weight and thereby ascertaining the cost of freight. Bench scales are a common type of platform scales designed specifically for measurement during shock and overload protection.

Floor scales are mainly used for weighing containers in freight through jet aircrafts. They weigh the entire containers, vessels. They are capable of weighing substances at varying heights, capacities. Some of the common types of floor scales are: GSC Gatordeck features a popular application of reducing the stress applied on the load cell. GSC Proweigh floor scale is used to measure very heavy weights; it has a full plated bottom along with a bridge like structure. A low profile scale, GSE Provex drumming floor measures carts, drums accurately. Floor scales measure the capacity of the containers with due accuracy. They are constructed completely with steel so they need to be stored away from corrosive chemicals and moisture. Hence floor scales need to be handled with due care to protect from rusting but they are equipped either with an enamel paint or powdered coat of protection. However floor scales find their applicability in harsh environments, for such instances they are manufactured with full stainless steel. When you require a portable floor scale, choose an aluminum constructed floor scale.

Spring scales is a mechanical instrument that measures force in accurate units of kilograms or pounds. They find their utility in diverse applications. Digital scales are particularly used in packaging processes for an automatic filling line where the containers move on top of a scale platform. When the desired amount of fluid, material or product is filled the scale closes the filling mechanism until the next container is in place. Counting scales count the number of products placed on the scale with detailed specifications of measurements.

Whether your business requires the functioning of platform scales, floor scales, or spring scales, it is important that you check the accuracy, price and the warranty period.
