Two new weighing platforms for bench- and floorscale applications for measuring raw material formulations that require reliability with optimal accuracy are now available from Mettler Toledo, Columbus, Ohio.

            Designed for harsh industrial environments, the new PBK9 and PFK9 weighing platforms are available with capacities from 0.6 to 3000 kilograms at resolutions of up to 750,000 divisions. They are said to virtually eliminate the impact of environmental interferences that cause errors and result in wasted ingredients or rejected batches. Advanced Monobloc load cell and filter technology reportedly guarantees the highest precision and reliability possible. Other key benefits include:

• Outstanding accuracy, as they are ideally suited for all weighing processes in which quality is critical and tolerances need to be minimized.

• Reliable performance, as the platforms notify the operator when recalibration or adjustments are needed due to environmental changes.

• Easy maintenance thanks to automated calibration with a built-in calibration weight and plug-in cables.

• Versatility as the platforms are suitable for a variety of challenging environments including areas with heavy dust, location that need regular cleansing and those classified as hazardous (Category 3 DIV2).
