For businesses where accurate weighing is critical, a well-maintained floor scale is an indispensable asset. Superior Weighing and Processing is your ally in achieving unwavering accuracy and reliability from your equipment. With this masterclass in floor scale maintenance, we’ll guide you through the essential care practices that every scale owner should know.

Ensuring a Pristine Scale Environment:
Maintaining the cleanliness of your floor scale cannot be overstated. Debris accumulation can skew readings and damage components. Regular cleaning, performed with appropriate tools and care, is essential to preserve your scale’s accuracy. Take special precautions to protect sensitive load cell cables from harm during maintenance routines.

Adapting to Your Scale’s Surroundings:
Unreliable measurements might indicate that your scale is being affected by its environment. Ensure adequate space to prevent binding, and if your setting requires frequent washdowns, invest in IP69K-rated load cells designed for such conditions. However, be mindful of temperature impacts on the load cell performance during and after cleaning procedures.

Load Cell Maintenance and Accuracy:
Inconsistent scale readings often point to load cell issues. Start by checking all cable connections for security and integrity. If problems persist, load cell adjustment or even replacement might be necessary. Follow manufacturer guidelines closely to avoid introducing further discrepancies.

The Foundation of Precise Weighing – Calibration:
After addressing mechanical and environmental factors, recalibration may be the next step in maintaining scale accuracy. The correct calibration process is crucial and may require a certified technician, especially for Legal for Trade applications. Warm up your scale, test with significant loads, and execute zero and span calibrations with precision.
