Industrial environments for paint mixing can be dangerous if improperly managed. There are strict standards because many of the thinners, toners, binders, and other chemicals used to produce paint can be toxic, flammable or explosive. Not only that, spray cans are placed under tremendous pressure during production, and the contents of these are often flammable. This is the reason for the warnings to avoid storing these cans near sources of heat.
By outfitting your paint mixing room with the right equipment, you can prevent injury to your employees, and damage to your infrastructure. ArlynGuard’s intrinsically safe bench scales are designed to perform in conditions where they may come into contact with hazardous, flammable or explosive fumes, liquids or high concentrations of dust. Their electrical system is designed to prevent accidents with these materials. These scales are safe for a number of reasons, ranging from the materials they constructed out of, to the technology they use.
Intrinsically Safe Bench Scales from Arlyn
These scales are “intrinsically safe” because the power needed to operate them is less than that required to set off an explosion near hazardous materials. These scales are made out of strong materials, and have corrosion resistant exteriors. These features make them an excellent choice for an environment like a paint mixing plant.
Whether you need to weigh small amounts of powders and fluids, full barrels, or anything in between, Arlyn Scales can provide a model of explosion-proof scale that fits your needs.
- The ArlynGuard B Intrinsically Safe Bench Scales work for distilleries or lab workshops. These scales have no moving parts. This simple design makes these scales sturdy and long-lasting. These high-precision scales are available in a range of capacities.
- The ArlynGuard C Intrinsically Safe Cylinder Scales offer safe ways to measure the weight of liquefied gases.
- The ArlynGuard Intrinsically Safe Floor Scales are excellent for weighing large loads that you don’t want to have to lift too far or high. They are suited for weighing large items or containers of substances in hazardous environments.
Efficient Data Storage and Transmission
These scales are designed to interface with a wide range of input and output systems, from USB ports to Ethernet and WiFi cables. Your process for storing, recording and sharing data can improve as well. The software in our scales can feed directly into Excel spreadsheets. This can cut time out of your record-keeping process. It also puts all the information you need for calculations and equations right at your fingertips as quickly as possible. This is particularly important for companies that have multiple plants in different locations, and need to share and centralize data for their records.
Accuracy and Safety from Arlyn Scales
While offering safety and security, these scales deliver the precision industrial paint manufacturers need to guarantee the quality and consistency of their product. This is extremely important in a highly visible product like paint, where the slightest mistake could mean a peeling or runny surface, or a mismatched and incorrect color. Details like weighing materials can save your industry time and money. You will deal with fewer customers complaints and demands for refunds by delivering a quality paint. You can also prevent revenue from being lost to recalls thanks to the better quality assurance offered by these scales.
Improve Production Process with Arlyn Scales
The second a production plant shuts down due to repairs or manufacturing failure, the business begins to lose money. ArlynGuard intrinsically safe scales are a smart investment for your production plant because they are so durable that you will not need to replace or repair them as often as you would for alternative models.
This is primarily because the technology we use lets us manufacture our scales with more durable materials. Arlyn’s revolutionary Sound Acoustic Wave (SAW) technology allows us to use stainless steel, which is far more resilient than the aluminum used in many other scales. Aluminum is more likely to warp due to sudden impact stress, whether that comes from the scale being dropped on the ground, or a heavy weight coming down on the scale all at once. This warping not only shortens the life of the scale, it actually makes it less accurate. Stainless steel scale platforms from Arlyn can serve your industry longer, and endure harsher conditions than options made of other materials will.
In the case of paint mixing, many of the chemicals and materials involve toxic or corrosive liquids and gases. Arlyn’s stainless steel scales may be coated with a corrosion-resistant layer designed to resist these. Not only that, attachments to the scales such as extended displays are also available in durable, corrosion-resistant materials. Small conveniences can have enormous impacts on the efficiency and flow of your production process. Often, hazardous environments mean the workers are wearing gloves and goggles that can be cumbersome. Arlyn’s backlit display systems, housed in durable, anti-corrosive materials are well adapted to these conditions. Arlyn Scales have outfitted a diverse range of industries from farms to factories with scales that serve them for years.
Automation Options for Quality Control
Whenever there are complex substances requiring multiple materials blended at exact amounts, automation can help ensure consistency and quality reproduction. You can pre-set your system of Arlyn Scales to dispense materials only up to a certain amount, incorporating mechanical precision into your production process. This creates opportunities for smaller production environments and more efficient methods. Automation tends to open opportunities for production plants to save time and money.
How To Get Intrinsically Safe Scales
