Less Down Time – for Lower Costs 

Increased reliability means, lower costs. With Scaletron’s scales, cost savings are realized by eliminating the facility downtime that typically occurs after a chemical spill in order to replace damaged load cells and wiring. Facilities will log less down time and more hours in operation by simply using the Scaletron Model 4000 Series Drum, Tank and Platform Scale in place of another manufacturer’s. Over the long run our scales save money.

SCADA Integration – for Improved Chemical Monitoring

Scaletron’s indicators and process controllers offer a built-in 4-20 mA analog output that can be used in conjunction with a scale indicator. The 4-20 mA output allows Scaletron’s scales to be integrated via PLC with other local equipment or SCADA systems at a central monitoring station. Ideal for remote installations, it reduces the need to visit the site where the scale is located.

Custom Calibrated – for Easy Installation

Prior to shipment, Scaletron custom calibrates and tests all equipment to customers’ exact specifications and application requirements. Scale indicators, depending on the model, can be calibrated in various units of weight or volume including pounds, kilograms, gallons and liters.

With so many advantages it is easy to see why Scaletron’s Model 4000™ Series Drum, Tank and Platform Scales are the best choice for all types of water treatment and chemical processing facilities. Contact us today to find out how Scaletron scales can improve your operations.
