Industrial Scales Ideal for Washdown Areas
Updated: Jun 10
In industrial settings that require precision weighing, durable, washdown scales are essential.
Washdown areas expose bench scales and food scales to moisture, water pressure and even submersion. In this circumstance, inferior products will not suffice. OHAUS offers several weighing options that are built to withstand such extreme conditions.
A Bench Scale Built for Washdown Areas
The new generation OHAUS Defender® 5000 Washdown bench scale is durably constructed to withstand wet environments. It features a 304-grade stainless steel platform and frame, and stainless steel IP68 indicator. Stainless steel loadcells are protected to IP67, meeting standards like OIML, EC Type Approval (up to 2x 3000e), NTEP and Measurement Canada (up to 5000d). Adjustable, non-slip rubber feet help ensure operational stability. All Defender® models are easy to clean and maintain for continued use.
OHAUS Defender® 5000 Washdown is well-suited for standard applications, including production, packaging, inventory and shipping. The multifunctional bench scale allows for precision weighing, check weighing, percentage weighing, and more. It comes equipped with advanced features such as maximum configurability print output, GMP/GLP data output, library/user management and multiple connectivity options including WiFi and Bluetooth. Defender® 5000 is designed to simplify demanding industrial and commercial applications.
For all your weighing application needs, Defender® 5000 offers durability, simplicity, advanced features, and the precision results you’ve come to expect from OHAUS.
High-Performance Food Scales for Wet Conditions
The portable, tabletop OHAUS Valor® 2000 and 4000 IPX8 washdown scales set the industry standard for food industry weighing with precision, speed, and durability. These durable, rapid-response food processing scales offer enhanced food safety, efficiency, and productivity even in harsh, wet environments.
NSF certified/USDA-AMS accepted Valor 2000 and 4000 support HACCP certified systems. Valor® 2000 and 4000 each offer stainless steel platforms and housing, large LED front and rear displays, and puncture-resistant, polycarbonate keypads, making them good choices for use in dry or washdown environments.
Valor® 2000 is the premier value scale in the category. The NSF-certified food scale offers protection from moisture as well as from knives and other sharp instruments used in food preparation, processing and portioning applications. The unique IPX8 flow-thru design ensures that Valor® 2000 XW will channels fluids that may enter the housing through strategically located drain holes, ensuring the scale remains clean and operational in wet environments. Stabilization time is less than a half-second, allowing for fast weighing results. Dual displays allow for easy viewing and shared operation.
Valor® 2000 XW is suitable for weighing and checkweighing and can operate on the included AC adapter or rechargeable battery for up to 50 continuous hours of operation. It features an up-front level indicator, auto-close power jack cover, and convenient carry handle. Non-slip leveling feet offer stability. Valor® 2000 XW is easy to set up, operate, and thoroughly clean. And with an entry level price, it makes a terrific choice for essential food weighing operations.
For more demanding legal-for-trade food weighing operations, the multifunctional OHAUS Valor® 4000 XW water-resistant food scale offers the same speed and durability as its younger sibling, but it adds additional advanced features like touchless operation, checkweighing and percent weighing modes for maximum efficiency. Boasting an impressive half-second stabilization time, Valor® 4000 allows for increased productivity without sacrificing accuracy.
