What are explosion-proof platform scales? What are hazardous area platform scales?
An explosion-proof scale or hazardous area scale is approved for use in classified hazardous areas by regulatory authorities. Explosion-proof scales and hazardous area scales provide safe, efficient and reliable weighing in potentially explosive environments.
What makes an explosion-proof platform scale safe?
A scale is considered safe when the user has done an equipment risk assessment by identifying the type and duration of the explosion risk and then selected the correctly designed and approved equipment. Equipment, such as scales, needs to be approved and manufactured according to all relevant standards, which includes an approved maintenance plan for continued service.
