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.
