What is the Kern WTB-N Trade Approved Bench Scale?
The WTB-N Trade Approved Bench Scale is an IP65 rated washdown bench scale suitable for use anywhere in the food industry. The water resistant design combined with the stainless steel weighing pan makes for easy cleaning and wiping down after use.
The WTB-N Trade Approved Bench Scale features two displays on the front and rear, which are able to give steady weight values within 2 seconds. WTB-N also has an innovative weighing with tolerance range (Checkweighing), with a colour changing display that changes depending on the weight (too light/ok/too heavy). This makes portioning, dosing and grading tasks simple and efficient.
A compact, flat construction makes the WTB-N Trade Approved Bench Scale practical for small spaces, whilst recessed grips on the underside and the option of battery operation makes the weighing scale highly portable and suitable for use in several locations. A protective working cover is also included with the scale.
This scale is trade approved, meaning it can be legally used for selling items by weight.
