Scales for Handling Solvents, Sealants, Adhesives, and Resins
For adhesive, sealant, solvent, and resin manufacturers, there are a number of scale features that are extremely important due to how these materials are made. The process for manufacturing these products often requires mixing a number of different materials and the weight and amount used must always be tracked to ensure the finished product has the necessary sealing or adhesive properties to be used by end users.
One way that manufacturers are able to consistently create high-quality coating products is through the use of industrial scales. These scales offer a whole host of features that ensure accurate readings can be recorded and that a variety of automation procedures can be introduced that can reduce error and improve business processes all based on data from an industrial scale. Other scales we offer are explosion-proof, made for hazardous environments, including our cylinder scales for liquified gases.
Industrial Scales Suitable for Adhesive & Sealant Manufacturers
At Arlyn Scales, we’ve been manufacturing high-quality industrial scales for more than 30 years. In this time, we’ve worked closely with a large number of customers to get input on their exact needs. This has allowed us to introduce a large number of specialized industrial scales and scale features that continue to be welcomed by our growing list of customers.
If you’re looking for a type of scale that will work well in the adhesive & sealant industry, be sure to check out the following models from Arlyn Scales:
Ultra Precision Scales
Ultra Precision Scales utilize our own patented Surface Acoustic Wave technology allowing them to produce readings that are 10-20 times more accurate than standard strain gage scales while being able to provide the same level of accuracy as magnetic force restoration scales, but at a fraction of the cost. In addition, Ultra Precision Scales don’t exhibit many of the shortcomings of both strain gage and magnetic force restoration scales.
Look no further than the Ultra Precision Scale for adhesive & sealant environments where both capacity and precision are required.
Liquid gases are used across a broad range of industries, including for coatings. For both safety and general production considerations, it is extremely important to be able to monitor the level of liquid remaining in a tank to ensure that all products are being made properly. When a cylinder with liquid gas in it is placed on one of these industrial scales and the known weight of the cylinder is subtracted from the given weight, the total amount of material in the cylinder can be determined. This way the remaining liquid level in the cylinder can be constantly monitored.
There are a variety of scale features that are vital for sealant manufacturers. These features relate both to how the scales themselves are built, as well as to certain features that can make the formulation of sealants much easier. Below are just a few of the ways our industrial platform scales can be of great benefit to sealant manufacturers.
Key Features of Industrial Scales for Adhesive & Sealant Manufacturers
Now that we’ve showcased a few industrial scales that work well for adhesive & sealant manufacturers, here are some of the key features of our scales that make using them so beneficial to your bottom line.
Wide Array of Communication Options
Our industrial scales offer a wide array of communication options that allow you to instantly access your weight data across all types of devices on your company’s corporate network. Below are just a few of the ways that you can access weight data from one of our industrial scales:
Ethernet / WiFi – Simply connect your scale to either an Ethernet or WiFi network and instantly be able to control your scale and access weight data from anywhere.
USB – Connect a USB cable between a computer and your scale and be able to import scale data directly into a database program of your choice.
Datalogging – This data is saved in CSV format making it accessible in your favorite spreadsheet or database program such as Microsoft Excel or Access.
Automate Processes in Your Facility With Our Setpoint Controller
Another useful feature for coating manufacturers is our setpoint controller. This controller allows you and your team to better automate and control the filling, dispensing and batching of all types of materials. Program up to 8 weight values that can help you to mix and dispense materials as well as perform programmable logic (PLC) functions. This feature provides safety and convenience. Our explosion-proof scales are already one measure, but when working with volatile chemicals, every little bit helps.
Ready to Take the Next Step to Purchase an Industrial Scale?
When deciding to purchase an industrial platform scale to be used in the sealant manufacturing process, it’s important to understand exactly how the scale is going to be used as well as the type of materials that will come into contact with the various scale components.
If you’re in the market for a new industrial scale for your facility, we urge you to reach out to our team with any questions. We’ve been in the industry for quite a long time and feel confident that we can help you find the exact industrial scale you need at a price that is well within your budget.
