Above all, one of the most fundamental types of industrial scales in today’s world is the crane scale. They are ubiquitous, highly useful, and accurate. Crane scales are utilized in a broad spectrum of diverse industries ranging from shipping to construction to fishing. These versatile scales are ideal for all lifting, force measurement, and weighing applications.
Our selection of crane scales will ensure that you can handle heavy loads with ease. We design them for convenience when your weights cannot sit still on a platform. No matter the industry, use them for the bulkiest loads or the ones that won’t sit on a platform.
Industries That Use Crane Scales
For centuries, scales have been integral tools for countless industries around the world. Large, analog scales were in regular use in various types of industrial facilities. The problem with analog lies in potentially inaccurate measurements, especially when factoring in how heat and humidity can affect the scale sensitivity.
Most people are unaware that these electronic scales play a significant role in their everyday way of life. They do more than weigh simple products. Today, industrial scales are no longer only seen on the cutting table of a butcher or upfront at the general store’s counter. With the advancement of technology, modern digital scales are capable of performing an array of important tasks.
Almost all airlines in the United States use platform scales to adhere to the strict regulations regarding weight on their aircraft. Measurement of the weights of the passengers and luggage for each plane’s voyage must be accounted for before takeoff. This is to prevent potential crashes from weight imbalances. Thanks to platform scales, the safety of millions of people is guarded.
Veterinarians, farms, and zookeepers employ animal scales to help maintain the health of their animals. This includes using veterinarian scales to promote proper feeding and medicine dosages to livestock, endangered animals, and even our beloved pets. The scales reduce the stress for animals unwilling to walk onto a platform, especially wild predators.
To calculate the rain levels of certain environments, rain gauge scales are used. The measurement of rain helps scientists study and protect the environment. It can measure the amount of water available to an area, especially with sensitive endangered creatures like frogs or species of fish.Farmers even utilize these digital scales to help with their crop supplies.
Medicine is another important industry that uses digital crane scales. Imagine a huge delivery of imported vaccines during a pandemic. The amount of vaccines received is crucial and weighing the load ensures this.
When the delivery is shipped, both the sender and the receiver must make certain of the number of vaccines available. Because of the heaviness and awkwardness of the load, the loads are not able to placed on a platform scale, pallet scale or floor scale. They also have to avoid contaminants, so that people can take them.
Instead, a crane scale is selected as the best tool for this job. It completes the task of weighing the load, while lifting the load off of the cargo ship. This saves precious time from being wasted. Once the weight is calculated, and in turn, the number of vaccines is verified, thousands are able to receive the essential vaccines quickly.
Our Industrial Crane Scales
Arlyn Scales knows just how important these digital scales are to us all. For that reason, we put great care into each of our selections. Their crane scales are made to be reliable and durable enough to withstand harsh environments. While other scale companies choose less durable materials for their load sensors, Arlyn Scales integrates stainless steel load sensors.
Because crane scales are used in so many different industrial environments, they are easily exposed to moisture, chemicals, and changes in temperature. To further ensure the ruggedness of their sensors, Arlyn Scales surrounds their sensors with a high impact and high visibility of solid red polyurethane and aircraft-grade aluminum housing.
To eliminate maintenance, Arlyn Scales constructs its crane scales with no internal moving parts. This reduces the risk of clogging or wearing out the various components like load cells so that water droplets and other contaminants cannot cause harm.
With an outstanding accuracy of 0.1% of full capacity, these industrial scales are reliable for exact weight measurements, which is a desirable and necessary feature of the scale. These extremely resilient crane scales boast a high capacity ranging from 2,500 lb up to units with a capacity of 10,000 lb with resolutions ranging from .5 lb for the smaller scales up to 2 lb. To help protect their scales against overload shock, the scale includes an overload warning message at 102% of scale capacity.
The scale must connect to an overhead crane or lift. In certain cases, crane scales are used in places where there is low or no headroom. Arlyn Scales has designed their crane scales to address this issue. For easy viewing in any situation, these scales are also equipped with full-feature digital indicators. These indicators have large 1Ó high graphics digits. The display speed of these scales is .4 second and is adjustable. The weights are viewable in several different units, including pounds, grams, and ounces.
These scales are even mobile. They can easily be moved to and from locations and worksites thanks to their power requirements, which are two rechargeable batteries. This is useful for zoos, farms, and other places with creatures that will not sit on a platform. Additional features of the crane scales by Arlyn Scales are (Universal Serial Bus (USB) ports, pushbutton tare, zero, and optional swivel shackles and hooks.
