What is the PT-450?
The Marsden PT-450 is an IP68-certified waterproof stainless steel pallet truck scale. It’s our ultimate pallet truck scale, purpose built for harsh environments where the scale would require washing down. These pallet truck scales are made to order, with graduations to 500g and a 2000kg capacity as standard, with bespoke options available on request.
What does the IP rating mean?
The PT-450 is Marsden’s IP68 rated pallet truck scale. The IP rating refers to the scale’s protection against water and dust. The first digit (e.g ‘6’) refers to protection against dust; the second digit (e.g ‘8’) is protection against water and other liquids. IP65 scales are protected against moisture when they are wiped down with a damp cloth. IP67 rated scales are splashproof, protected against moisture and can be washed down. If a scale is IP68 rated, like the PT-450, it is fully waterproof and can still provide accurate weight readings in the most punishing environments.
More information about IP ratings can be found here.
What are the benefits of pallet truck scales?
Ultimately, by choosing a pallet truck scale you can save time in despatch areas - as items can be moved as well as weighed in one process. Pallet truck scales can be used to weigh goods before they are loaded onto vehicles. The accumulation function can be used to tally a number of weights, and work out the exact load that the vehicle is carrying - ensuring it meets regulations (find out more here).
Why should I choose the PT-450?
Choose the PT-450 for weighing and transporting goods in the harshest conditions. It’s particularly suitable for food factories and chemical plants. This is the scale you need if you require a robust, time-saving heavy duty weighing scale, particularly if this scale is likely to get wet on a regular basis. The indicator is easy to use, with Tare, Gross and Zero functions. With 500g graduations and a 2000kg capacity (bespoke options are available) it’s the perfect scale for check weighing of heavy palletised goods. The display can also be switched to read in lbs.
The internal rechargeable battery will provide 40 hours of continuous use between charges, with a mains lead for charging safely stored away in a watertight compartment at the front of the scale. The scale will auto power-off after a set period (which can be defined by the user) to save battery power. The dimensions, capacities and graduations listed here are standard but bespoke sizes and capacities can be ordered on request.
