Inspection Service Agreements: How They Benefit Your Company

For your NIST-certified company, here are efficient services to benefit you, brought to you by our experts at Carolina Scales. We will service your scales and provide related activities according to inspection service agreements (ISAs) to help your business run smoothly and efficiently.

Scale Inspection Services

To keep your scales running at their best, we will come to your facility and service scales there on a scheduled basis, as per the ISA. How regularly you want us to come is up to you, whether it be every three months, six months or on an annual basis.

Our scale inspection service provides your company with the peace of mind of knowing your scales are safe and performing their best. Our activities give you the preventative maintenance required for well-run scales. We will check over all scale aspects with close attention to detail, which means we will catch any issues in their beginning stages. Early detection keeps any issues from becoming worse over time, saving you money in the long run.

Certificate Retrieval System

At Carolina Scales, we proudly offer an additional service that few of our competitors do. We have a Certificate Retrieval System (CRS) to give customers the opportunity to view their company’s scale certificates for any sale and trade-related audits.

This service saves you from having to create, file, store, retrieve and print calibration certificates for your company. Your company saves time and gets information quicker than ever, unlike many of our competitors. We do require you follow NAFTA standard guidelines at all times during this type of service.

We also provide calibration certificates to you from an online database. These documents contain full details of your scales, which your company may want for legal reasons, when trading for goods or related shipping activities.

Regulations for Racecar Scales and How to Buy Them

10320536_10152213656878801_232282328672273556_nFew things are as exciting as being at a track when high-tech cars are zooming by at 200 miles per hour. Because of this, automotive racing, which includes NASCAR, has shot up to the fourth most popular sport in the U.S., according to a recent Harris Poll.

While most are happy to watch the race, there is significant work happening behind the scenes—and even in the pit—that most spectators aren’t aware of. In the majority of automotive racing, there are strict weight limits, which looks to set the standard for both fairness and safety. These race circuits weigh cars before and after races, often disqualifying entries that fail to meet regulations.

At Carolina Scales, we offer a wide range of standard and custom portable vehicle scales, which are perfect for racing applications. Our portable scales are great for tough applications and most offer benefits such as:

  • Accurate measurement of almost any vehicle no matter the size
  • Good for above ground or pit installs
  • Decks made of steel and concrete
  • Expandability and easy-to-read digital displays
  • Above ground, pit, and portable models
  • Full customization for your exact needs

Carolina Scales stocks and sells an industry-leading selection of portable scales from a number of highly respected scale companies such as Rice Lake, Intercomp, B-Tek, and UniBridge.

No matter what kind of auto racing you follow or are involved in, Carolina Scales has a scale to match your needs. To learn more about our selection of portable vehicle scales please visit our website or contact one of our experts today.

And remember, the next time you are enjoying a race with your friends and family, know that the odds are pretty good that there are portable scales making it all the fun and excitement possible.
