How to Choose a Bench Scale


Bench scales are used in a range of industries, including shipping and receiving, manufacturing, and food processing. Bench scales have a small footprint, making them suited for small-scale processes. Before purchasing a bench scale, you should think about the material, capacity, and size of the scale, as well as industry needs and manufacturer assistance.


It’s critical to make sure the bench scale’s construction is environmentally friendly. A stainless steel bench scale may be appropriate for applications involving corrosive conditions or frequent washdowns. Because stainless steel does not rust or corrode easily, it works well in corrosive settings. A mild steel bench scale could be a comparable alternative to a stainless steel bench scale for other uses.

Capacity and Size

Examine the goods you’ll be weighing before deciding on a bench scale. Examine the dimensions and weights of the smallest and largest items to see if a single bench scale’s capacity and size are enough. If not, you’ll need a second scale to get exact measurements.

Industry Requirements

Understanding the installation standards required for approval is critical when considering bench scale solutions. Selling items based on their weights, for example, necessitates a Legal for Trade installation, which necessitates certification of the scale’s measures first. Scale technicians who have been certified by the government execute this certification. Hazardous uses are another example. The chosen bench scale must meet the standards for potentially explosive settings in terms of safety.
