Wash Down Platform Scales

Supplier: Independent Scales - NZ

In-ground platform scales in food processing areas are a collection point for food scraps that are hosed into the scale pit during normal cleaning procedures. The pit drain eventually blocks and the combination of decaying food scraps and brackish water starts damaging the scales, but more importantly, the scale pit quickly transforms into a potential health hazard.

Price Guide: POA

The Axis platform scale from Independent Scales NZ provides the solution by allowing cleaning staff easy access to the scale pit and the drain without the assistance of a maintenance crew and lifting devices.

The weighing deck of the platform scale is hinged and fitted with gas struts for easy raising by cleaning staff (without requiring the assistance of a maintenance crew) to allow the platform scale and the scale pit to be washed down during normal room cleaning procedures.

The entire frame of the Axis wash down platform scale is fabricated in  stainless steel (or hot dip galvanised) and fitted with hermetically sealed stainless steel load cells that are immune to water damage by hosing.

There are no cable terminations under the platform scale with all four load cell cables routed to a sealed junction box mounted externally below the digital weight indicator.
