The reliability and toughness of A&D Australasia ’s HVG-Water Proof Platform Scales were tested by the recent floods in Queensland. The natural disaster provided incredible challenges to all those affected, by creating conditions of extreme adversity.
Many businesses have returned to find much of their equipment completely inoperable due to being submerged under metres of water.
Ian Sheppard of Weight Tech, upon inspecting one customer’s A&D Water Proof Platform Scale found that it was still working.
He had picked up the item from a customer in Rocklea who had experienced severe flooding of their premises. The location was submerged under 4 metres of water for approximately 4 days.
“It was the only scale they had not thrown out,” Ian said.
“Today I took the back off and found about 50mls of water inside.
“I disconnected the battery and power adaptor connection and connect it to a 9V supply.
“I pressed the ON button and guess what......IT STILL WORKED.
“I even re connected the load cell and it even weighs correctly. WHAT A SCALE!”
