Since last year, we have been documenting the various updates to the 2016 IMO container weighing regulations which come into force on 1st July. You can read our latest update here.
With help from a number of freight companies, we’ve also been working on the best solution for weighing containerised goods so that there is a verified proof of weight when the container reaches the port.
At some point in its life, just about any commodity you can think of will be weighed.
The weight reading may be used to determine quantity - for example, if counting scales are used. An item may be weighed to ensure it won’t overload a container.
Analytical balances - also known as precision scales or balances - are weighing scales designed to weigh mass in the sub milligram range.
They’re ideal for laboratories, but also can be found in pharmacies (for weighing out medication) and industries like paint and chemical manufacturing.
Ever wished you could speed up the process of counting out multiple items in your business? Well, you can - with counting scales. In our latest white paper, we explain how.
Better Quality Control With A Counting Scale explains how a counting scale works, and how it can speed up processes within your business.
A weighing scale is a vital piece of equipment for measuring your body weight and tracking health and fitness. But, if you want a much more rounded picture of your body health - you need to know more than just your weight.
That’s where body composition scales come in. They’re now more readily available - and affordable - than ever, and can be a much better tool for measuring how fit and healthy you are.
It’s now less than three months until the new container weighing legislation, under the IMO’s International Convention for Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS), comes into force.
From 1st July, every container will require a verified proof of weight before being loaded onto a ship. Containers without a verified proof of weight will be rejected by the port.
(Relatively) fresh from the recent BeerX trade show, organised by the Society of Independent Brewers (SIBA), we thought it a good time to write a guide to brewery scales. We spoke to dozens of breweries over the three day event, many with different needs and requirements - no two breweries are the same, it appears!
We recently came across an interesting feature on BBC’s The One Show - where the question was asked: How accurate are your bathroom scales?
A selection of bathroom weighing scales were compared against a set of ‘professional medical scales’ - a Marsden M-510 to be precise! - to see how much they differed in accuracy.
