Platform Scales for Veterinary Use

Platform Scales are used to broadly describe weighing scales that have larger weighing surfaces than those found on a typical bench. The weight indicators often tends to be separate from the platform, or weighing surface, enabling the indicator to stand to one side out of the way, mounted on the wall or as in some case mounted on a pillar.The benefits of using a larger weighing platform, is that much larger items can be weighed easier.

Digital weighing scales such as the GFK and GBK bench checkweighing scale can be used without the pillar assembly and can also be used on work benches, they do not have to be used on the floor. The larger platform scales are used for pallet weighing typically in warehouses or dispatch departments, some variations can be pit mounted (lowered into the floor) enabling pallet or fork lift trucks to stand on them with the items being weighed. A lower cost version of this is the pallet truck with a built in weighing scale. Wash-down fully stainless steel versions can also be provided, these are ideal for use in the food, vet and pharmaceutical industries where hygiene is critical and the environment needs to be cleaned.

Inscale's range of platform scales can be used effectively as animal scales, with many of our veterinary scales coming complete with dynamic weighing options that are specifically designed with animal weighing in mind. Platform scales are perfect for weighing small to medium-sized pets such as dogs, especially the wash-down variety.

Platform Scales Help

Q: How do platform scales work when weighing animals?

A: Without going into depths about how a scale works, platform scales broadly come in two types, first is a single cell base where a load cell is mounted between two frames and the load is applied to one side of the cell. This can sometimes be referred to as a cantilever type. The other type is basically a load cell mounted in each corner of the platform base and the weight applied is measured by the sum of the load cells. There are advantages and disadvantages with each method, but cost has an impact on the designs.

As vet scales, platform scales utilise dynamic weighing options that can take a force exerted by an animal on the weighing pan and calculate an average weight over a certain time period or relative impressions, thus helping to record an accurate weight for the animal.
