Accurate Weighing through the Winter Months
For many operations, goods are bought and sold based on a truck scale’s displayed weight. This function means optimal performance and accurate weight are critical parts of maintaining a constant stream of profit. Outside of lightning damage, poor upkeep is the number one reason for truck scale breakdowns. Switching to PowerCell PDX
from Mettler Toledo
may eliminate the threat of lightning, but preventative maintenance is the best way to maximize uptime and accurate weighing throughout the lifetime of your truck scale.
As we approach the coldest months of the year, truck scale cleanouts are one of the most important services that we can perform. Over time, dirt and debris will inevitably collect underneath your truck scale. If left unattended, buildup between your scale modules and the end walls will drastically reduce accuracy. Since buildups often contain moisture, it is especially critical to perform a cleanout before the cold winter months. If it is not removed, the moisture from the debris can cause your scale to freeze in cold temperatures. Maintaining a debris-free environment is the best way to prevent freezing and avoid winter downtime.
At Premier Scales & Systems, we can clean out your scale regardless of weather conditions. Our team uses specialized cleaning methods to a flush all excess debris without damaging the sensitive weighing equipment. If your scale has debris buildup, we can customize a solution to keep your scale performing properly and weighing accurately in cold weather.
We are currently running a pre-winter special on truck scale cleanouts. Please contact us below for a custom and affordable cleanout solution.
