The Adam Equipment WBW washdown bench scale has a two-second settling time that allows for increased productivity. The sealed ABS plastic housing is rated to level IP66 against dust and strong jets of water and the stainless steel weighing pan resists corrosion and is easy to clean, for use in applications where washdowns are required, such as food processing plants and agricultural facilities. The scale has an automatic external calibration system and can be operated using AC power or the built-in rechargeable battery, offering full mobility in the field and when a power supply is hard to find, for up to 50 hours. The auto off function can be enabled to power off the scale automatically after periods of inactivity to conserve power.
The digital screen is backlit for easy readability, displays weight in five different units, and provides a capacity tracker for visual reference to prevent the scale from being overloaded. Using the keypad, the scale easily switches into check-weighing mode during which the red, amber, and green LED lights notify the user if the load is under, over, or within the pre-set weight limit. Check weighing limits can be password protected to prevent unauthorized alteration. Adjustable front and rear nonslip feet provide level measurements and stability, so the scale will not tip under eccentric loads. When used according to manufacturer’s recommendations, this product is covered by a two-year warranty.
Scales or balances are measuring instruments used to determine the mass of an object. Mechanical balances are the simplest type of balance, and use a lever and slide to indicate the measurement. Conventional balances are commonly used in offices, the jewelry industry, and in kitchens, and display results digitally, but are less precise than analytical balances. Analytical balances measure to a high degree of precision and accuracy (0.0001 g or better), and display results digitally. These balances have a cover with doors to prevent dust and airflow from affecting the measurement. Moisture balances analyze moisture content in a material sample, using infrared or halogen heat sources to dry the sample and then calculate the moisture content from the before- and after-drying weight, and display results digitally, on the balance, or transfer the information for display on a computer.
Adam Equipment manufactures balances, scales, and related accessories for laboratory, educational, industrial, retail, and medical applications. The company, which was founded in the United Kingdom in 1972 and has an office in Danbury, CT, meets International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9001:2008 standards.
