The Leader in Corrosion Resistant Scales and Feeders for Chemical Industry Applications

IBC Tote Bin Scale
Model 4040 IBC™ Tote Bin Scale

Scaletron is the leader in corrosion resistant technology for scales and volumetric feeders 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. In addition, we offer a complete line of volumetric screw feeders for dry powdered chemicals and other materials. Feeders are available with a gravimetric feed option with a built-in scale and a range of loading options from bag loaders to direct feed from silos.

From the manufacturing of basic and commodity chemicals to polymers and specialty chemicals, weighing and feeding 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 is vital to maintaining continuous operations (reduced downtime), production efficiencies, quality, and profitability.

Meeting the Weighing and Feeding Needs of the Chemical Industry

We meet the needs of the chemical industry by providing reliable, accurate and safe methods to weigh and feed 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. Other water conditioning chemicals are supplied as dry powders and require accurate feed rates to achieve proper dosing.
