If you are in the market for industrial weighing scales, you've come to the right place. Whether you need to measure weights in grams or tons, there are industrial weighing scales that will suit your needs.
To begin with, you're going to need to know what kind of weighing you're going to be doing. Obviously if you're looking for a scale that can weigh in tiny increments, you're not likely to be looking for heavier duty, high tonnage industrial weighing scales. Conversely, if you're looking to weigh high-weight items, you're not going to be looking for industrial weighing scales that weigh in grams.
There are hydraulic, mechanical and electrical scales to choose from. Some scales are designed to help weigh parcels for shipment. Since part of shipping costs are due to weight of the package, it's quite important to get an accurate weight.
There are bench scales, floor scales, and platform scales. There are rain gauge scales, and corrosion resistant scales. There are any number of specialty industrial weighing scales, so most likely if there's something you need, there's a scale you can find for your measurement needs.
Some scales are designed to weigh trucks along the highway, to see if they are meeting or exceeding the weight limit for the road.
Some scales are even designed to count the number of items placed upon the scale.
Crane scales are designed to weigh things that are hung from the scale. Typical weight limits are up to 60,000 pounds, but certain scales can be purchased that weigh up to hundreds of thousands of pounds. Crane scales aren't only designed to be used for weight limits in the thousands and tens and hundreds of thousands of pounds. They are also used for things such as weighing feed sacks and mail bags.
Some scales are designed specifically for use in food service, and can stand up to certain conditions, like moisture, better than other scales. Food scales are designed for weighing items in the food industry. They are often designed to weigh in your choice of pounds or ounces, or grams or kilograms.
Agriculture and livestock scales are other kinds of industrial weighing scales. These are designed to weigh things like grains by the ton and cattle. There are different sizes of livestock scales, with some being for large numbers of animals, and others being made for a single animal at a location such as a fair.
There are scales designed specifically for laboratory use. Some of these scales are designed to be compact and portable. There are formula control scales. There are even explosion-proof scales!
Now, it's up to you. Do you need to weigh candy in small batches, so you're looking for a candy scale, or perhaps you'll be in charge of weighing livestock at the fair? Do you need to ship something, or are you hoping to find out how much grain you harvested this year? If you know what you need to weigh, there are sure to be industrial weighing scales for you.
