Accuweigh ’s Newcastle branch supplied a precision balance to Nature’s Selection Tuggerah plant in NSW for weighing precise amounts of food additives. To achieve the required high accuracy in weighing the food fortification powders, a set of AND precision balances were installed. With a weighing capacity of 4000g by 0.1g increments and the ability to weigh both minute and large volumes of food additives, AND’s EK-4100i precision balances were suitable for this application.
AND’s precision balances are trade approved and replaced with a faulty set of balance scales that was no longer suited for the high accuracy needs of this weighing application. For increased OH&S compliance, a remote display was connected to the serial port of the precision balance and mounted at eye level. This optional accessory eliminates operator neck strain caused by the need to continually look down at the main scale display to see the weight readings.
