Rice Lake offers weighing solutions for hostile environments and materials, optimizing efficiency of chemical processing and material handling.

Scales for Chemical Processors

From organic alcohols and petrochemicals to industrial acids, catalysts, compounds, pigments, paints and other inorganic substances, the chemical processing industry is composed of a broad range of consumer and industrial products. To optimize chemical manufacturing and maximize chemical material handling efficiency, Rice Lake offers heavy-duty weighing solutions for hostile materials and hazardous environments.

During chemical reactions and refining, exact measurements are crucial. Chemical vessels—from tabletop beakers to industrial drums and tanks—require special corrosion-resistant material to withstand the chemicals’ hazardous properties. Weighing equipment used in these processes also needs to stand up to harsh chemicals and environments.

The SURVIVOR® RL2100 HE weigh module kit is ideal for medium- and heavy-capacity hostile environments found in chemical blending and batching applications. Heavy-capacity kits include all stainless steel compression mounts and weld-sealed, double-ended beam load cells. The JB4SS NEMA Type 4X stainless steel junction box and 25-foot hostile environment load cell cable complete the kit.

Rice Lake’s RoughDeck® HE hostile environment floor scale is specifically designed for corrosion resistance and longevity in harsh chemical and washdown environments. Constructed from stainless steel and incorporating stainless steel, IP67 weld-sealed load cells, the RoughDeck HE is ideal for chemical material processing and handling.

For tabletop weighing during chemical production and refining, Rice Lake’s BenchMark™ HE hostile environment bench scale offers durable and reliable performance for measurement-based tasks. Its stainless steel construction and IP69K hermetically sealed load cells stand up to chemical applications and washdown needs after use.

Quality control laboratories testing chemical products during and after production need precision measurements, dependable repeatability and uncompromising accuracy. Rice Lake’s TS Series tuning fork balance provides precision accuracy with an exceptional stainless steel, IP65 housing that protects it from dust and liquid ingress. With 13 units of measurement, a high-speed response time and capacities ranging from 620 to 8,200 grams, TS balances offer chemical laboratories unmatched accuracy to perform weight-based chemical processes and compliance tests with confidence.

Chemical plants require exact science to meet the demand for a wide array of chemical products, from everyday laundry detergent and interior paint to industrial corrosive acids and compounds. In chemical processing and handling, using time-tested and systematically-designed weighing equipment from Rice Lake creates a beautiful reaction.
