Buy a new scale? We have the tips!

Buying a new scale for your business is not always easy. To ensure that you choose the right scale, it is good to first decide what the scale should primarily be used for and it is also good to keep track of some common concepts that occur among scales. Remember that a scale is a measuring instrument and should be treated accordingly. Our scale guide aims to help you choose the right scale for your business. See our tips below.

Usage environment.

The first thing you need to take into account is the type of environment the scale should be placed in. If it is a normal or dry environment such as a storage environment, all alternatives work, but if it is a wet or dusty environment, there should be some form of protection against this. Scales with a high density rating (IP class) or scales made entirely of stainless steel may be suitable in, for example, restaurant kitchens or in the food industry where hygiene and cleaning are often in focus.

What to weigh?

The size of the weighing surface can in many cases be of great importance for the choice of scale. Ideally, the entire product or goods should fit inside the weighing plate. It helps to ensure a correct weighing result. If you choose a plate that is too large, this can mean that you do not get the weighing accuracy you need or that you pay unnecessarily much for your scale.

Maximum weight.

The capacity of a scale and how much to weigh is often quite easy to find out. One thing that can be good to keep in mind is that it can be an advantage to increase a capacity, if what is weighed weighs close to the maximum capacity of the scale. If you normally weigh products / raw materials of 20-25 kg, it can be a good idea to choose a scale of 60 kg instead of one of 30 kg. It can give a longer lifespan on the scale as it reduces the effect of shock load and also the risk of being exposed to overload. It is important that the scale has the accuracy you need.

Accuracy and resolution.

The accuracy required for the measurement result usually has a direct effect on the cost of the scale and it is often stated in the product sheet's specifications. Accuracy can also be called resolution where the display resolution is the smallest unit shown in the scale display. The accuracy is usually expressed as a tolerance +/- a number of scale parts or unit of weight to be compared with the total number of scale parts of the scale. The display resolution should not be taken for granted, does not correspond to the accuracy, especially if it is high display resolution and low price. The actual accuracy and thus also the weighing result is always affected by the environment in which the scale is placed, the nature of the test and the skill of the user.

Functions.

Simple weighing, calculation weighing, control weighing and price calculation are examples of common functions where a scale can be used. In some cases, you can also use the scale to control various forms of processes and flows. This obviously places different demands on the scale in the form of number of displays, communication, accuracy, software, verifiability and more.

Type approval.

A type approval means that a certain wave model meets the prescribed requirements according to the OIML standard. Scales to be used in legal trade and for medical diagnosis and treatment must always be type approved and verified in accordance with the requirements of OIML. (OIML stands for International Organization of Legal Metrology). OIML develops international standards and models to ensure correct legal measurement within Europe.

Verification.

Verification (formerly called coronation) means that the scale has undergone a check that the scale meets the requirements established in the type approval. The verification is usually time-limited and may only be done by an accredited company or body. In connection with the verification, a verification certificate is written and the scale is sealed.

Recurring checks.

Scales in operation are checked via recurring checks that were previously called re-verification. The legal requirement for e.g. store scales are that they must be re-verified every two years. Re-verification may only be done by an accredited company / body.

Calibration and adjustment.

Calibration is a check that the scale weighs correctly. You compare the scale with a correct measure, ie. a traceable and certified weight. This is documented in a calibration certificate. Any deviations can be corrected by adjustment. Most companies in the wave industry perform calibration and adjustment.
