When looking at the large variety of industrial jobs, one will quickly realize that there is a lot of variation in work environments. Some sectors, at worst, have an occasional fire, while others deal with explosions semi-regularly. In those types of environments, you’ll need intrinsically safe equipment.
While most of your company’s gear will have apparent alternatives that can hold up against explosions, there are some items that don’t have as many options to choose from. One such piece of equipment is an industrial scale. Fortunately for you, we’ve taken the time to put together a list of some of the top explosion-proof weighing scales that’re currently on the market.
OP-900B-EX Explosion Proof Scale
Probably the best choice for a volatile environment is a platform scale made specifically to hold up against explosions: the OP-900B-EX. Not only is this scale strong enough to remain resistant to such destructive balls of gas and flames, but it’s also highly accurate and reliable, making it an approved scale that’s legal for trade. This scale has been put through rigorous tests in various kinds of environments and has held up against them all. It’s truly the perfect choice for a hazardous jobsite.
US-TB4848-10K With US-9011SS-EX
However, if your workplace doesn’t regularly experience explosions, you might not need a scale specifically focused on a very high explosion resistance. A standard platform scale that can still withstand a blast might be the better fit, which is why US-TB4848-10K with US-9011SS-EX is another solid choice. This scale is much more versatile while still being intrinsically safe. It can easily handle weights up to 10,000 lbs. and comes with a five-year warranty in the slight chance that anything goes wrong with it.
MSI-4260 Port-A-Weigh Crane Scale
Of course, depending on your company’s needs, a platform scale might not be the right choice for your jobsite. When you need to hang your products and materials to weigh them, the MSI-4260 Port-A-Weigh crane scale will be the best choice for you. The base model of this scale is quite tough, but you can buy a configuration of it that makes it more intrinsically safe, helping it stand up against intense flames and explosions.
Sartorius PMA-X Explosion Proof Scale
Sometimes a job will require you to weigh something more specific that will benefit from a specialty scale. If you need to do this in a volatile environment, finding the correct weighing scale that can hold up against an explosion might be a challenge. If you need something with this level of strength that can also weigh paint cans, then the Sartorius PMA-X might be just what you need. This scale can weigh your paint cans as well as mix them, making it a true all-in-one machine.
Now that you know the top choices of explosion-proof scales that are available to you, it’s time to find a place where you can buy them.
