Equipment Maintenance With Carolina Scales

It’s hard to emphasize the importance of a thorough inspection of weighing equipment. Having factory-trained certified technicians check for problems can eliminate repair costs and equipment downtime, which is why we offer Inspection Service Agreements (ISA).

This crucial service works similarly to an insurance policy: it ensures proper maintenance, cleaning and calibration in an attempt to tackles issues before they happen. The ISA sets Carolina Scales ahead of other companies in our field, because our customers know we will take care of their machinery; giving them one less thing to distract them from their jobs!

Agreements like this will offer a variety of services. The ISA will cover regular scale and balance checks, which can mean semi-monthly, monthly, bi-monthly, quarterly, or semi-annually depending on the customer’s specific needs. The more frequent the checks are the less likely emergency maintenance will have to be performed.

Another benefit to the ISA is that all tested equipment is labeled and certified, allowing customers to access certification information online through our Certificate Retrieval System (CRS). ISA customers can look through the entire history of their certified equipment.

Our service isn’t the only maintenance agreement out there, but with the expertise of the Carolina Scales technicians the ISA is ahead of the competition. Keeping scales and balances running to their potential is just a part of what we do.

Scales in Chemical Plants

Chemical plant scalesThere may be no industry where extreme precision is more important than the chemical industry. When milligrams – or less – can make the difference between a successful product or a wasted effort (or “boom!”), equipment must be as finely calibrated and accurate as possible. Scales are understandably found at all steps of chemical production, from microbalances for formulations, to floor scales for deliveries and shipments. Regardless of whether the scale is inside a lab being used by a scientist, or on a loading dock measuring outgoing packages, accuracy and safety are paramount.

In operations where speed and accuracy are most important, our batch scales provide the greatest utility. These scales can be programmed with recipes and measurements, allowing workers to let the scale do most of the work. At the other end of the spectrum are huge tank scales for measuring bulk materials. These can be up to 200,000 pounds in capacity, necessary at the biggest pharmaceutical and chemical facilities served by Carolina Scales. As with any facility where shipments occur, forklift scales are also a common sight, ensuring that every piece of the puzzle is accounted for at every step of the way.
