What are industrial low-profile floor scales? What are the types of low-profile floor scales?

Low-profile floor scales offer easy weighing of heavy loads without costly pit construction because they lay flat on your production floor. You can achieve effortless movement of loads on and off the scale with short ramps to save time and energy.

Choose from models with liftable platforms for streamlined cleaning of the bottom of the scale and the floor or models with built-in wheels for easy mobility around the production area.

METTLER TOLEDO’s hygienic low-profile scales are characterized by their easy-to-clean, EHEDG-friendly and GMP-compliant designs, which prevent potential sources of contamination.

Which is the best low-profile floor scale for my application?

When a conventional pit-frame scale is not an option or low-passage height is critical for your operation, consider low-profile floor scales. The best type of low-profile floor scale will depend on your environment and the application requirements. If you need a mobile scale to use in multiple areas throughout your facility, choose a low-profile floor scale with wheels that can be placed where you need it or moved out of the way when you do not. If you require an easy-to-clean scale for a hygienic workplace, look into stainless steel options with easy-lift functionality that will facilitate simplified cleaning processes. In dry environments, you can select cost-effective, painted steel low-profile floor scales. There are also low-profile floor scales designed with safety in mind for hazardous area weighing applications. Consult your local METTLER TOLEDO representative for support with selecting the right low-profile floor scale for you.
