What Is a Heat-Resistant Crane Scale?
Operations regularly exposed to extreme temperatures need equipment designed to withstand those extremes, including overhead weighing systems. Crane scales used in foundries, forges or rubber processing facilities must be heat resistant to ensure proper operation and capture accurate weights.
Heat-resistant crane scales are constructed with heavy-duty enclosures to protect sensitive electronics. When preparing to purchase a heat-resistant crane scale, it’s important to consider the most extreme temperatures of your operation to ensure you select a scale designed to withstand those temperatures.
Most heat-resistant crane scales also need a heat shield to help protect the equipment from extreme heat. Heat shields can be made from mild or stainless steel and are typically disc-shaped. You may need to speak to your scale distributor or manufacturer to ensure the shield meets your requirements. Heat shields also help block vapors and fumes, helping prevent moisture damage as well.
Most crane scale models have an LED weight display built-in so operators can view weight data from a distance. Some crane scales don’t have a built-in weight display, making them better suited for super-high-temperature applications because sensitive components are completely protected from heat. These types of crane scales must be wirelessly connected to a remote display, cell phone, tablet or computer to monitor scale data.
If extremely high temperatures are a regular part of your operations, you need to trust your equipment will withstand the demands of your processes. Rice Lake Weighing Systems offers heat-resistant crane scales and remote display options ideal for high-heat facilities. Rice Lake’s MSI overhead weighing experts are available for consultations if you have questions about the right scale for your application.
