Taking and tracking weight measurements is vital in just about every industry. If your business handles paints, fuels, lubricants, sand, or spices, then you’ll need an industrial drum scale.
These scales are reliable and accurate weighing systems that measure materials stored in a drum container. They are perfect for weighing objects in a variety of settings, such as factories, warehouses, and shipping yards, and they’re rugged enough to endure those environments.
At Arlyn Scales, we offer a diverse range of drum scales that are designed for industrial and commercial applications. Varying in capacity, resolution, platform size, and even construction materials, our line of equipment empowers you to find the perfect means for weighing your drums & their goods.
Industrial Drum Scales
When it comes to choosing the right industrial drum scale for your business, there are a few factors you need to consider. First, you must consider the capacity that your operations require.
We offer scales with a capacity of 500 pounds or 1000 pounds. This enables you to determine the best scale to accommodate the size of your product or the target output of your weighing process.
Second, you must determine the ideal size of the platform upon which your drums will be placed. Finally, you must decide if your operation requires a scale with stainless steel construction, or if aluminum construction is more suitable.
Choose a Scale that’s Loaded with Features
Finally, you need to consider the features of the scale.
Some scales have a digital display that shows the weight of the object in real time, while others can talk directly to your computer!
Choose a drum scale with features that are most vital to you and your business.
Drum Weight Scales: Industrial & Commercial Applications
No matter what type of business you operate, an industrial drum scale can be valuable for many different uses. These scales are reliable and accurate, and can handle large loads with ease.
Many industries require the use of large drums for storing and transporting liquids. They can be found in industries dealing with fuel, cleaning chemicals, laboratories, water testing and purification, and so much more.
At Arlyn Scales, we offer the ideal type of drum scale for weighing these materials. So consider our drum scales if you frequently weigh materials stored in drums, including (but not limited to):
- Cooking Oil
- Diesel Fuel
The Advantage of Arlyn Scales’ Industrial Drum Scales
When you’re weighing these heavy drums of material, it’s best to use a scale that features an extremely low platform. This, combined with a shallow loading ramp, makes it much easier to get the drums into place safely.
At Arlyn Scales, we designed our drum scales to support a wide range of industries. Therefore, our low-platform scales are accommodating, regardless of what type of barrels you use!
In fact, there is no rail on the perimeter of our scales. This means that barrels of almost any size can be measured, because the load can overhang from the platform.
Minimize Spillage & Injury
This level of attention-to-detail in design prevents damage to your equipment and to your drums, which could result in the loss of product from spillage. Not only that, but it reduces the risk of injury to warehouse workers, such as from sprained backs and knee damage.
These scales can be outfitted and customized to your infrastructure needs, and with ease. At Arlyn Scales, we offer upgrades, including:
- Flow Rate Measurement Programs
- Thermal Printers
- Time And Date Displays
- Touch Screen Digital Indicators
- Usb Ports
…and much more. In fact, we can work with you to design a custom system!
