What kind of floor should I put my scale on?
Floor scales can be installed with in-ground pit installations, permanent above-ground installations or as completely mobile units for use on hard, flat surfaces throughout your production area. It is recommended that your floor scale is placed on completely even, un-slanted ground so that the loads can be placed in the center with equal weight distribution across the load cells to ensure an accurate measurement.
Can your floor scale weigh 42 x 48 pallets and be certified for trade transactions?
Yes, our floor scales can weigh these pallet sizes and all have NTEP and OIML approval for legal-for-trade weighing. You can customize most floor scales to meet the size and capacity requirements of your operation.
