Large high accuracy weighing scales have heavy loads placed on them, so they must be both rugged enough to withstand the shock of the load and sensitive enough to yield accurate measurements. Many industries such as shipping, manufacturing, chemical mixing and so on require accurate weights to carry out their daily operations. Companies that mix industrial compounds often use weight as the guide to adding different compounds. International freight companies and those who must send heavy loads by land or air depend on weight to plan their safety during transport as well as their budget, (fuel costs, tariffs, taxes, etc). In addition, many commercial products are sold by weight. At ArlynScales, we manufacture large floor scales that come in a variety of sizes. We have the standard 4 x 4 floor scales that can accommodate a capacity of up to 5000 lbs. These are suitable for weighing heavy pallets, tanks or totes. However, we also manufacture 3 x 3 models that are meant to more easily weigh vertical tanks, and 3 x 4 floor scales that are better suited to horizontal tanks. These last two usually come with a 2500 lb capacity, and will thus provide more sensitivity than the more common 4 x 4, 5000 lb capacity model, (bearing in mind that the more targeted the span of a scale is to what is to be weighed on it, the more sensitive the readings). We offer other sizes that feature higher capacity, from 10,000 lbs to up to 20,000 lbs. The platform sizes that accompany these are 4 x 6, 5 x 5, 5x 7, and 6 x 8. In addition, have the ability to make custom scales for any application or any size load. The digital readouts that come with our scales offer the highest accuracy on the market. The reason is because of our load sensors, which are made of stainless steel for optimum durability. These load cells can absorb shock and capacity overload much better than aluminum ones. They are much less likely to warp over time with continual use, and they have more elasticity than other materials as well. This means that they will not permanently bend when the immense shock of a capacity overload occurs, such as when a tank or forklift is driven on to it. The added advantage of the platform of the scale and the load sensors being made of stainless steel is that large, high accuracy weighing scales must be rust resistant. The anti-corrosive nature of stainless steel guarantees that your Arlyn Scales model will last much longer than others made of different materials. Over time, every scale’s surface get’s scratched away, and rust can set in to steel scales in some environments. However, at Arlyn Scales, we coat our models with a zinc-rich epoxy that ensures that the scale will oxidize much slower, giving you many more years of use out of it. We even offer full stainless steel construction that have an added concentrated anti-corrosive coating that can be added to your scale’s platform if your environment involves weighing caustic substances. Our digital scales are highly accurate to begin with, but they can also be loaded with sophisticated software that could wirelessly transmit your data into a computer database in a central location far away from the actual weighing site. These software applications save you time, energy and money. Contact us today for a large, high accuracy weighing scale to suit your needs.
