Industrial platform scales can be found in countless industries around the world. Recycling plants often utilize platform scales to weigh the input and output of various materials. Laundry services rely on platform scales to determine the prices of their customers clothing bundles. Airlines help to ensure the safety of their aircrafts by adhering to weight guidelines. Electronic scales weigh luggage, and at times passengers, to help follow the set safety regulations. Industrial platform scales, by Arlyn Scales, are both versatile and durable. Their platform scales begin with a 20′ x 27′ platform size and range in size, all the way up to the very large 48′ x 48′ platform size. With an array of sizes, choosing a digital scale to meet any type of need is simple. If a specific size is necessary, Arlyn Scales offers an optional custom sizing scale design. Not only are these scales available in many different sizes, the accuracy of these scales is outstanding. With internal resolution to 1 part in 500,000 and weight resolution up to 0.1 lb, these scales register accurate weights. These weights can even be stored utilizing USB ports or direction connections to computers and printers. Available software can also be installed to provide the scale operator with additional capabilities. With proper set-up and security, these industrial scales are able to connect to the Internet, further increasing the scales usefulness. Arlyn Scales created their electronic scales to be user-friendly. A large 1Ó high graphics digital display and swivel mount allows the scale operator to easily view the measurements from virtually any angle. Thanks to the pushbutton functions, users can operate the scale with just a push of the button. A keyboard tare provides the user with 450 memory locations and multiple unit conversions right at their fingertips. All of these superior features provided by Arlyn Scales are not only useful, but they are housed in an extremely durable construction. Arlyn Scales has enhanced industrial platform scales because of the rugged construction of their scales. For starters, the larger platform scales have not one, but four load sensors. A load cell is placed in each corner of the scale. This design allows the platform of these scales to be very low. This feature is especially useful when weighing heavy objects. The objects do not need to be lifted to great heights to be placed on the platform. Smaller scales have just one load cell and have even lower platform height. While the competition employs aluminum for their load sensors, Arlyn utilizes stainless steel. Their platform scales are also available in full stainless steel construction. The use of this material helps to guard the scale against load sensor failure. This is a common malfunction of many poorly constructed scales. Weighing tremendously heavy loads that exceed a scale’s capacity can cause elastic deformation of the material. The load sensors may also be damaged when objects are dropped on the platform or inadvertently hit by forklifts that can shock the sensors. Arlyn Scales designed their scales to tolerate higher levels of side load, overload, and shock load. Thanks to Arlyn Scales and their durable stainless steel design, platform scales can now have larger platforms and therefore are able to withstand heavier loads. This increases production for many industries that were once unable to utilize the convenience of a platform scale. Besides improving their scales with a rugged stainless steel design, Arlyn Scales provides an additional option that makes their scales exceptionally durable. A glass filled epoxy can be applied to cover the stainless steel platform. Arlyn Scales offers a line of corrosion resistant scales. These scales are ideal for operating in especially harsh conditions. Weighing cylinders that contain chemicals or harmful materials, such as chlorine, ammonia and fluoride, are done with peace of mind. Most companies choose to simply paint their scales. However, Arlyn Scales chooses to coat their scales in an additional protective layer. Therefore, these scales are less likely to scratch and rust. This layer acts as a water resistant seal helping to protect the scales sensors as well. The scales are capable of functioning in environments that may include weighing of liquids or outdoor weathering. Even the display is water resistant. With a molded display enclosure and rubber gasket, Arlyn Scales produces scale that is entirely rugged.
