Food industry scales are hard-wearing industrial devices, suited to the harsh environments and regular use. Our range of food manufacturing scales are all IP rated, have Trade Approved alternatives and are proven best-sellers into the sector.
Whate is an IP rating?
An IP rating is used to measure an item's resistance to liquids and particles. An IP rating typically appears as the letters ‘IP’' followed by two numbers, such as IP44, IP65 and IP67. The digits in the IP rating refer to a different type of protection. The first digit refers to how protected the instrument is to dust, and the second digit is how protected the scale is to water and other liquids.
All of the Marsden products shown in our Food Industry category have an IP rating, ranging from IP65 to IP68. Find out more about IP ratings on the Marsden blog.
What does Trade Approved mean?
For many applications, using a Trade Approved scale is a legal requirement. However, many people are unaware what the term 'Trade Approved' means.
Trade Approved scales must be used in order to comply with regulations for buying and selling goods by weight; they are also referred to as verified scales, legal for trade scales and stamped scales. In order to receive their 'Trade Approved' certification, weighing scales must undergo rigorous testing.
Almost all of the Marsden food manufacturing weighing devices are Class III (Trade) Approved, or have an alternative device which is. Find out more here.
What food manufacturing/industry scale is best for me?
