Accuweigh Load Cells, Industrial Scales and Weighing Systems Perth branch recently delivered six (6) sets of harsh environment scales to Dorsogna’s Smallgoods plant in Perth.
These harsh environment scales were supplied to eliminate regular scale failures caused by water ingress damaging the sensitive weighing electronics.
Accuweigh’s X320 harsh environment scales are rated to IP69K and are suited for the daily wash down procedures these scales receive with high pressure hoses at temperatures up to 80ºC. The harsh environment indicators were fitted to A&D HV-30kg stainless steel scale bases which have proven to be very reliable in the client’s application.
Internal rechargeable batteries are fitted to the harsh environment scales for easy relocation to different packing lines without requiring expensive waterproof electrical outputs to be installed in multiple locations. At the end of each day’s production, the harsh environment scales and scales are washed down with a high pressure hose then packed in a dry room overnight for recharging of the batteries.
Accuweigh is Australia’s largest industrial weighing company and has branches in all mainland states offering sales and service support on harsh environment scales, waterproof scales and wet area scales.
