Waterproof & Washdown Scales
Not every business will need waterproof and washdown scales, although if you’re dealing with wet or dirty substances in your workplace then it’s a necessary purchase. Environments that would benefit from having these would be places like butchers and fishmongers, or perhaps more industrial settings where dust and dirt can be a real problem.
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.
