The Leader in Corrosion Resistant Scales for Chemical Industry Applications
Scaletron is the leader in corrosion resistant technology for scales used in harsh environments. We manufacture a complete line of scales and accessories designed for weighing and monitoring the usage, feed rate and inventory of corrosive chemicals and/or materials.
From the manufacturing of basic and commodity chemicals to polymers and specialty chemicals, weighing technology from Scaletron ensures reliable and accurate measurement of chemicals during the production processes to maintain high levels of product purity.
The production of chemicals requires exacting and complex procedures to manufacture products that meet the users needs for process efficiency and safety as well as complying with environmental regulations. During these processes monitoring chemical feed rates via weight is vital to maintaining continuous operations (reduced downtime), production efficiencies, quality, and profitability.
Meeting the Weighing Needs of the Chemical Industry
We meet the needs of the chemical industry by providing reliable, accurate and safe methods to weigh chemicals used in the manufacturing process.
Chemicals used are typically stored in pressurized cylinders, ton cylinders or dewars as a liquid gas, in tanks or drums as a liquid, or in powdered form in drums. For both safety and general production considerations, it is extremely important to be able to monitor the level of product remaining in a tank. In addition, problems caused by excessive or interrupted gas flow during the production process can be extremely costly.
Typical chemicals include:
- Carbon dioxide, oxygen, nitrogen
- Ethylene, propylene, polyethylene
- Sulfuric and phosphoric acid
Scaletron’s scales can be found in many chemical manufacturing and processing applications including:
- Basic chemicals – polymers, plastics, bulk petrochemicals and intermediates, industrials, inorganics, and fertilizers
- Life science chemicals – chemical and biological substances, pharmaceuticals, diagnostics, animal health products, vitamins, pesticides
- Specialty chemicals - electronic chemicals, adhesives, sealants, coatings, cleaning chemicals, printing inks, catalysts
- Consumer products - plastics, cleaning materials, cosmetics, paints and coatings, flavors and food additives, textile chemicals
Whether the application requires a standard or custom weighing system, Scaletron’s engineers will help find the right solution to best meet your weighing needs.
