We’ve just launched a new stainless steel bench scale - and it’s our lowest priced Trade Approved bench scale yet.
The Marsden B-400 is IP67-certified - which means it’s suitable for a wide range of industries, like breweries, food factories and industrial kitchens. It is capable of weighing goods accurately up to 30kg and is Trade Approved for pricing goods based on weight.
Here’s all you need to know about the new addition to our range...
An accurate industrial scale is essential for many sectors, perhaps none more so than the construction industry which is worth £110 billion per annum to the UK economy.
Construction covers a wide range of professions - many of which use weighing scales as part of their work to ensure goods are accurately built, and ensure defects are avoided or eradicated.
But why is it essential that accurate weighing scales are used in construction? This blog post explains.
Waterproof scales are essential for fishmongers. If a scale without an IP rating is used, it could be at risk of being broken if liquid finds its way into the scale.
The scales listed in this blog post are built to withstand regular use in wet or humid areas, which makes them perfect for fishmongers. Christina Herbert of Macsorsons Fishmongers told Marsden in a case study, “I had been desperately searching for a waterproof scale. We had experience with moisture under the keypad.”
Marsden scales have found their way into countless numbers of places over the years. They are now found in most NHS hospitals, as well as a number of leading organisations in British and overseas industry.
And every so often they pop up on television, too. Last week the B-100 Bench Scale, our best-selling stainless steel scale, made an appearance on BBC One’s Celebrity Masterchef. But this isn’t the first time Marsden scales have been televised - we take a look at some of our TV appearances in recent years.
The Marsden B-100 is our most popular bench scale, with a range of features capable of benefiting a wide range of industries.
This stainless steel, waterproof scale is most used in breweries, seafood, bakeries and food processing factories - but that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
So, in this blog post, we look at some of the industries and users that benefit from using the B-100 for weighing processes - and why they chose this scale in particular.
Keeping airline weight as low as possible is imperative for airlines to help reduce costs. One area weight is essential is in catering processes, where menu items need to meet specific weight criteria.
Weight is one of the three most important issues, after aerodynamics and engine performance, affecting the efficiency of an aircraft - according to the Financial Times. Less fuel used means significant savings on operating costs for the airline.
Marsden Weighing Group understand the importance of space in business. The less space is needed for equipment, the smaller the premises that are required - resulting in potentially lower overheads.
As a result, many of Marsden’s industrial weighing scales are designed to be space-efficient. Many of our bench scales are small and portable; our axle pads are designed for easy storage and our pit mounted scales are are practically undetectable when not in use.
When browsing the Marsden range of industrial scales, you’ll notice there are many stainless steel alternatives. These scales often offer the same functions as their non-stainless counterparts – so why would you want to spend a little more money on scales that do the same thing?
For many industries, particularly the food industry and waste management, using a stainless scale is essential.
With many stainless steel scales currently with 10% off, you can buy one at roughly the same price as a non-stainless option. So, with now a great time to purchase a stainless steel scale, this blog post explains why they are a worthwhile investment.
