If you’re looking for weighing solutions wholly up to the task of measuring large-scale items, even animals, you’ll want to take a long, considering look at industrial floor scales.
Floor scales are one of the two major types of scales used on the floor, according to the Encyclopedia of Chemical Engineering Equipment. Both weighing scales have a great deal in common. The main difference between the two, though, lies in their scale capacity, their ability to take on massive loads.
Floor weighing scales are designed and built to sustain loads bigger than what platform scales are able to take on. So if you’re in the market looking for large-scale weighing solutions and platform scales strike you as a little underpowered, then industrial floor scales will likely make for a better choice.
Floor scales are ideal for getting the weight of heavy objects, with great precision and accuracy. Many have ramps to assist the flow of objects on and off the scale. So if you think you’ll need weighing tools that are bigger and better, then this one certainly fits the bill.
There are plenty of advantages for using industrial floor scales. These are:
You won’t have to worry about how you’ll ever accurately measure a pallet full of goods or in the case of a hospital environment, how to capture the weight of a patient in a wheelchair without all the usual hassles. Hospital staff can weigh patients simply by maneuvering the wheelchair over to the floor scale, measure the weight and subtract the weight of the chair to get an accurate measurement of patient size. In a retail setting, all you’ll have to do is to transfer the object onto the floor scale. For really heavy objects, a crane can be used to transfer the load on and off the scale.
* Switch Between Loading Capacities
Since floor weighing scales are built to withstand large-scale loads, most people assume the device is only good for large-item applications. However, it’s also easy to use for small-scale applications. From measuring elephants to grocery cans, industrial floor scales can easily switch between scale capacities. That’s a determining factor for a lot of companies out there. By investing in one device, you get to use it for so many applications.
* Built to Last
Another exceptional quality of floor scales is that they last. Built to withstand elephants and forklifts, these tools are capable of delivering accurate, precise weighing solutions for many, many years. So if you invest in one, you know you’ll be getting your money’s worth.
