In the food processing industry, sanitation stands above all else on the ladder of importance. If strict cleanliness guidelines are not followed, the product may be contaminated—causing potentially serious health issues for the customer and devastating business consequences for the processor.
This type of design allows employees to be held to the highest standard of sanitation. In most scenarios, full-body clean suits are worn by those in contact with all products as it is received, handled and packaged. Sanitary masks, gloves and boots complete the ensemble, revealing only an employee’s eyes to distinguish one individual from the next. However, the strict standards do not stop there.
At Associated Scale, we are able to install Rice Lake’s RoughDeck QC-X floor scales wherever bulk product weighments are needed, providing accurate readings without sacrificing sanitation or reliability.
A pit-mounted RoughDeck QC-X industrial floor scale can be installed flush with the concrete floor, enclosed on three sides by safety rails to avoid side loading and unnecessary forklift traffic over the platform.
Each RoughDeck QC-X floor scale can come with a stainless steel indicator pedestal with built-in junction box enclosure for added protection. 480 Legend Series digital weight indicators provide bright weight readings to operators.
Not only is the scale made entirely from food-grade stainless steel, it also utilizes hermetically sealed IP69K load cells for ultimate protection from water. Its washdown-friendly features go one step further—the top plate opens to an industry-leading 75 degrees for unmatched cleaning access.
