In the highly-regulated and safety-conscious food industry, water-resistant instruments are a necessity. They need to be built to withstand daily use and high-pressure washdowns so they can be kept clean and resistant to cross-contamination.
OHAUS Defender 6000 Bench Scales and Valor Food Scales are NSF-certified, USDA-AMS accepted and will support HACCP systems. These scales are designed with smooth, unobstructed surfaces that are easy to clean and free of areas where material can build up and cause contamination. Here are just a few of the high quality food scales we stand behind.
Valor Food Scales
series of compact food scales set the industry standard with a winning combination of durability, speed, accuracy, and touchless operation. Valor 2000
scales are suitable for harsh, wet workplace conditions. They are easy-to-use with intuitive interfaces and half-second response times to speed operator throughput.
Valor scales feature a 304 stainless steel weighing pan, smooth profile, and easy water flow for cleaning. A unique IPX8 flow-thru design ensures that the Valor 2000 and 4000 will drain any moisture that may build up inside the scale. They feature large front and rear LED displays for easy viewing so two operators can share one scale. They are available in stainless steel and plastic housing models with sturdy polycarbonate keypads offer protection from knives and other sharp instruments used in food preparation, processing, and portioning applications.
The Valor 2000 is a premier value scale for use in dry or washdown environments for 3.3 to 60 lb with precision from 0.2g to 5g. For additional features such as a touchless tare sensor, check weighing and percent weighing modes, the legal-for-trade Valor 4000 is the premier scale for use in dry or washdown environments.
