Which washdown scale would you recommend for industrial use?

This depends on the particular industry as well as how the washdown scale (or waterproof scale) is intended to be used. Generally we recommend stainless steel wshdown or waterproof scales for durability and reliability. Additionally, check the IP rating of the scale as this will denote how well protected the scale is against water and dust. All the most durable waterproof scales and washdown scales should carry an IP rating.

What do IP ratings mean?

IP ratings are a grading system used to determine the level of dust and water protection a scale or balance offers. The rating system works in ascending order with 1 representing low protection or vulnerable to dust and water, and 9 the highest level of protection meaning that the device is dustproof or waterproof. For example, our IWS waterproof scales offer IP68 protection which works out to a level 6 in dust protection and a level 8 in water protection, meaning that this scale offers one of the best levels of water protection currently available. Our listed products on this website are generally referred to as 'washdown scales' if their IP rating is up to IP67, and 'waterproof scales' if they are IP68 or IP69-certified.

Buy washdown and waterproof scales from Inscale Scales

All of our waterproof scales feature robust, water-resistant casing, with some washdown floor scales featuring sealed load cell components to better prevent water damage occurring within the internal components of the scale. Our IWS waterproof bench scale  is an IP68 rated scale constructed with fully sealed stainless steel housing for ultimate dust and waterproof protection. The IWS is a perfect choice for any harsh, wet environment from damp warehouses to shipyards.

Not only does waterproofing protect the internal mechanics of the scale, but it also makes the cleaning process much faster and easier. Almost all of Inscale’s weighing instruments are made from plastic and stainless steel to support wiping down after use, however some come with an IP rating which allows for complete submersion in liquids. This means that you can use either a hose or a jet washer to give the scales a far more rigorous clean.

An IP rating is a grading system used to determine how protected a weighing scale is from dust, dirt or liquids. The first number refers to the level of protection from dust and dirt, whilst the second figure shows the level of protection from water. The first figure is measured from 0-6 and the second figure is measured from 0-8, where 0 is no protection and 6/8 is full protection. For example, our Inscale IWS Scale has an IP68 rating, meaning it has the highest level of protection from both foreign bodies and liquids.
