Gas Cabinet Scale Features Stainless Steel Construction, Silicone Coated Load Cells, Enhanced Corrosion Resistance Inside and Out
Press release date: August 21, 2014
Scaletron Industries, Ltd., a manufacturer of corrosion resistant digital and mechanical scales, has introduced the Model 2308TM digital gas cabinet scale. Specialists in manufacturing scales for weighing gas cylinders, Scaletron has designed the new scale with complete corrosion resistance inside and out. For weighing cylinders of 9″ diameter or less, the Model 2308 is specifically for use in gas cabinets such as those found in the fire protection, liquefied gas, laboratory and medical gas industries, as well as refineries and semiconductor manufacturing.
Scaletron’s expertise derives from the company’s twenty-nine years in designing and manufacturing scales for use in water and wastewater treatment applications. “With the 2308 scale we are building on the success we have had in water treatment facilities,” said Edward Dougherty, president of Scaletron Industries, LTD. “We perfected the corrosion resistant design and the gas cabinet business is a natural progression for us.” Dougherty also said the Scaletron 2308 gas cabinet scale impacts favorably on safety levels because once the scale is in place, there is virtually no need for worker handling of gas cylinders except to replace empties.
The new scale consists of a simple, two-part set up: the scale base and a wall-mountable, digital 3.5-inch LCD display with a pounds/kilograms readout with a 4-20mA output standard. The display, including internal electronics, is housed in NEMA 4X, UL-approved enclosure which is resistant to chemicals including ammonia, carbon dioxide, hydrogen chloride, liquefied chlorine, sulfur dioxide and other corrosive materials. A 12-foot 4-conductor shielded cable integrates the display with the weighing base. The cable is jacketed with PVC and sealed with strain reliefs at the scale base and at the LCD indicator. Installation and operation instructions are included. The 2308 scale is also available with just the 4-20mA output in lieu of the display. The 4-20mA module is mounted in the base and needs only a 24V DC loop supply.
The 9x9x1 inch base features sturdy four-point suspension of the weighing platform. The low base height enables safe loading and unloading without requiring a ramp. The equally sleek display design facilitates installation inside gas cabinets regardless of cylinder support devices, fire sprinklers and other internal cabinet features.
The Model 2308TM scale weighs loads of up to 349 pounds (158 kg) and has accuracy is to within +/- 0.5% of capacity. Resolution is to within 0.1 lb for loads of up to 199 pounds (90 kg). Internal scale load cells are temperature compensated. Because the scales are weatherproof inside and out, mounting near air inlets and cabinet doors presents no problems.
