ArlynScales carries high quality cylinder scales with stainless steel platforms that are durable and can do much more than simply weigh the containers for you. Why is it important to construct a scale using stainless steel for this application? Well, it is the most durable material. Many of the liquids transported in tanks and cylindrical drums are caustic and would be corrosive to aluminum load cells which are the more common ones on the market. At ArlynScales, we take pride in designing and manufacturing the scales to the highest quality standards to give you a valuable piece of equipment that will be useful to your business for years down the road. Corrosive liquids such as chlorine, chloride, liquefied carbon dioxide or hydrogen, fluoride, sodium hydroxide, phosphate and caustic liquids are vital to many businesses. Thus, they need to be weighed adequately for sale. However, in the handling of the containers that hold these substances, a spill or slow leak could occur at any time. This would potentially harm your employees and your scale. You need to take the proper precautions to protect your employees as outlined by OSHA (Occupational Health and Safety and Health Administration). As for your scale, if you buy from ArlynScales, you will have the confidence of knowing that a stainless steel scale platform is naturally more resistant to the effects of spills. It is also easy to clean because it can be simply and conveniently washed down without fear that it will rust easily. If you routinely deal with more caustic substances, we can coat the scale platform with a special corrosive Ðresistant epoxy. This will provide even more protection from chemicals and ensure that your scale lasts as long as you need it to. It will be a comfort to know also that ArlynScales makes all our load sensors from stainless steel as well. This is definitely not the norm in the scale manufacturing industry, but it is certainly advantageous for the industries that must use scales regularly. Plopping a heavy cylindrical metal tank on top of a scale can cause permanent damage to the load sensors that the whole mechanism relies on to give you an accurate reading. Load cells made of aluminum often become bent or warped when sudden shock is applied to the scale surface. This impairs the essential function of the scale permanently. By contrast, steel load sensors are as rugged as the steel platform, and will stand up to years of abuse. The digital displays that come with our cylinder scales for liquid are highly accurate. They can be configured with sophisticated software that can save you valuable time. One such capability is SetPoint. This function will allow you to set up to 8 target weights during an automatic filling and/ or mixing operation. Formulas can be stored in the device’s memory based on weight. You can even get an option (RS-485) that will transmit the measurements from several scales at once to a computer database for easy recording and tracking of inventory. Visit ArlynScales today for a cylinder scale that can weigh liquids, that is head and shoulders above average quality and usefulness.
