It takes the utmost of caution to design and manufacture the ultimate weighing precision scales for hazardous areas. There must be superior elements in place in order to insure complete safety. Equipment that relies heavily on large electric currents have no place in this arena.It is with careful consideration that our engineers have been able to design Bench Scales and Cylinder Scales specifically suited for the weighing of combustible ingredients.
We have come to depend on the many products that direct our food consumption, our medical industry, our paint industry, our clothing, our cleaning products and our petrochemical products. Petrochemical products provide shelter for us in the form of insulation and flooring materials, cleaning materials such as soap, solvents and detergents, plastics of all kinds, electronic equipment, compact discs and even furniture.With the demand of a growing economy and reliance on the products listed and more, factories are operating on a twenty-four hour basis in some cases. The significance of reliable, durable and precise scales for these non-stop operations has increased as well.Safety in the workplace is a fundamental need and one that we at Arlyn Scales feel is our responsibility.
That is precisely why we have developed the perfect precision scales for hazardous areas. We manufacture our ArlynGuard Bench and Cylinder Scales to specifications that enable operation in areas that have explosive gas, vapor, dust or airborne particulates mixed with air in ignitable concentrations.
To Ensure Stability
First up in our own manufacturing process is the choice of manufacturing materials. In this regard, we have made a commitment to manufacture our subassemblies to last and to endure the rigors of industrial manufacturing. Aluminum certainly has its place in certain locales and nothing matches its portability factor. Our New York based factories are a plus for our customers. We offer factory direct prices and without the need of a middleman, we can pass the savings directly on to our customers. The additional value of this is that we can utilize the best materials for our weighing solutions without compromising our bottom line. We utilize the highest industrial grade of stainless steel for our load cells because we have found that there is no comparison when it comes to the durability and dependability ratings of stainless steel load cells verses aluminum load cells.To further ensure the protection of this valuable subassembly, we have designed a foolproof housing in each of the four corners of the welded aluminum frame for the equal output load cells. This placement provides protection from shock and overload damage that can occur. To protect against water damage, we further encase the entire electronic section in high grade moisture protection.With this kind of meticulous attention to detail, there is no need for a summation board, which is a top contributing factor for scale repairs.
Superior Bench Scales
Our ArlynGuard B Scales are made to last. The stainless steel platform, twelve inches by sixteen inches, is made in several capacities. When choosing the correct capacity for your scale, it is important to determine the potential weight of loads that are higher than average and to choose a scale that meets the requirements of these outliers. Doing this will provide the most precise weight data possible.
- ¥ The five-pound capacity scales have a resolution of one thousandth of a pound.
- ¥ The ten-pound capacity scale has a resolution of two thousandths of a pound.
- ¥ The twenty-five pound capacity scale has a resolution of five thousandths of a pound.
- ¥ The fifty-pound capacity bench scale has a resolution of one hundredth of a pound.
- ¥ The one hundred pound capacity bench scale has a resolution of two hundredths of a pound.
- ¥ The one hundred and fifty pound capacity scale has a resolution of five hundredths of a pound.
By choosing the correct weight capacity for your application, you will be guaranteed a better resolution, which is the smallest increment of weight that can be read on the digital indicator.
High Performance Cylinder Scales
Our ArlynGuard C Scales are meant to endure the rugged handling of gas cylinders. This nine and a quarter inch square platform scale comes in a sixty pound capacity with a resolution of two hundredths of a pound and three and four hundred capacities with weight resolution of one tenth of a pound. With the meticulous load cell placement as described above and being Intrinsically Safe, this cylinder scale is the perfect solution for industries with classified hazardous cylinders that rely on precision for formulations.
The power requirements of our hazardous area scales are our 3800mah NiMH C-cell battery. Included with both of these scales is a recharger with two replacement batteries and a high-resolution programmable indicator. This water resistant indicator is capable of holding up to one hundred formulas, tares or parts counting readings and is capable of showing multiple unit conversions such as grams, ounces, pounds and more.
Our Intrinsically Safe ArlynGuard scales are operable in Division 1 and Division 2 areas. Division 1 certification translates to areas where hazardous gases, vapors, dusts and airborne particles are released as a result of normal operational procedures. This may mean normal outputs or outputs due to repair or leak.Division 2 certification covers all areas where hazardous outputs are not the norm but can be found due to accidental rupture of the containers carrying the hazardous materials or due to a breakdown of processing equipment.Class I, II and III certifications ensure that flammable gases and vapors, combustible dusts and ignitable fibers would not cause a fire or an explosion due to our ArlynGuard Series Scales.
All of our ArlynGuard scales have one or more components that have been tested and approved to be Intrinsically Safe for use in an impressive range of hazardous locations including:
• Intrinsically safe for use in Class I, II, III; Division I; Groups A through G
• Non-incedive for use in Class I; Division II; Groups A through D
• Suitable for use in Class II; Division II; Groups F & G
• Suitable for use in Class III; Division II
Each ArlynGuard scale is equipped with one or more of:
• Model MKE-5-IS(-C) Digital Weight Indicator System
• Load Cell Models 620-300-IS, 620-100-IS, 620-50-IS, 620-25-IS, 620-10-IS, 520-10000L-IS, 520-5000L-IS, 520-5000IS, 520-2500-IS, 520-1250-IS, 320-500-IS and 320-250-IS
which are FM Approved components as per Approval Standard 3600, 3610, 3611 and 3810.
