Columbus, OH (PRWEB) September 8, 2006
METTLER TOLEDO announces the rugged PBA430 platform for high-performance weighing in the toughest wash-down environments. This revolutionary platform has been designed specifically for use in the food processing and chemical industries and any other industry where resistance to high humidity, high-pressure wash-down, and corrosive agents are essential.
The PBA430 base incorporates a hermetically sealed load cell (IP68 & IP69k-10,000kPa, 95C) for optimum performance and protection in harsh environments. The stainless steel construction of the load cell also offers protection against cleaning agents and corrosive agents frequently found in food preparation and industrial environments. The six-wire load cell allows trimming of the cable without affecting temperature compensation.
The PBA430 has up to six overload stops and incorporates special carbon-infused o-rings to support the platter. These special rubbers help with shock absorption of horizontal and vertical impacts along with electrostatic discharge.
Features such as the tubular design, open-frame construction and e-polish (AISI304-surface roughness) allow for easy cleaning and full drainage. The PBA430 is engineered and certified to National Sanitation Foundation (NSF), 3-A sanitary standards, European Hygienic Engineering Design Group (EHEDG), and GMP guidelines – optimal for use in sensitive areas of food, chemical and pharmaceutical industries. These documents can be down loaded from the METTLER TOLEDO website.
The product line includes 3 square platform sizes. Eight weighing ranges are offered from 3kg up to 600kg, resolution is 2x3000e multi range. And for non-certified applications, the PBA430 can display up to 30,000d. Communication with the terminal is made via analog or a digital (IDNet) scale interface. Options include IDNet interface and an AISI316 platter. The PBA430 weighing platforms are suitable for use both in safe and hazardous areas of category Class One Division one and two.
The PBA430 raises the bar on hygienic design. Not only is it designed to hygienic standards it is certified with hard copy documents published by NSF, EHEDG and a GMP certificate issued by a third party organization.
METTLER TOLEDO is recognized as the global leader in weighing solutions for industrial, retail and laboratory applications. The company plans to continue its focus on developing customer-oriented weighing solutions that harness the power and flexibility of the leading technologies.
