Stainless Steel Scales for Use in the Food Industry
Stainless steel scales appeal directly to the construction of the weighing scale rather than indicating a variety of scale in itself. We stock a selection of grade 304 stainless steel scales with IP ratings up to IP69K for advanced water and steam protection. Scales such as our own IWS waterproof bench scales come with welded sealing for total protection against water and dust ingress.
Stainless steel scales remain popular as food weighing scales and are used commonly within food preparation environments such as fast food take-aways, bakeries, butchers and restaurants, as well as in food production factories. In practical terms, stainless steel scales are used due to the advantages of stainless steel as a material that resists rust which is a necessity in a food preparation environment where contact with water and other liquids is commonplace.
The need for stainless steel scales also falls into many other sectors including: within laboratories for chemical applications as stainless is more resilient, clean room applications and even to weigh space exploration satellites.

Stainless Steel Scales Help
Q: Do I need a stainless steel scale for food preparation?
A: Whilst there is no requirement to use a stainless steel scale in particular, many industries tend to favour stainless steel scales simply because they are easier to clean than other materials and resistant to rust. Inscale offers many assortments of stainless steel scale that can be used for multiple different tasks.
