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. 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 electronic 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. 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. To calculate the rain levels of certain environments, rain gauge scales are used. The measurement of rain helps scientists study and protects the environment. Farmers even utilize these digital scales to help with their crop supplies. Above all, one of the most fundamental types of industrial scales in today’s world is the crane scale. 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. Most people are unaware that these electronic scales play a significant role in their everyday way of life. Imagine a huge delivery of imported vaccines. 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. 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. Arlyn Scales knows just how important these digital scales are to us all. 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 solid red polyurethane and aircraft grade aluminum housing. To eliminate maintenance, Arlyn Scales constructs their crane scales with no internal moving parts. Arlyn Scales has constructed their crane scales to be not only rugged, but also accurate. 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 boasts a high capacity ranging from 2,500 lb up to units with a capacity of 10,000 lb with resolutions ranging from of .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. In order for the crane scales to be used properly, 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. Additional features of the crane scales by Arlyn Scales are (Universal Serial Bus (USB) ports, pushbutton tare, zero, and optional swivel shackles and hooks. All of Arlyn Scales are calibrated and ready to use.
