Adam balances and scales are valuable tools in every aspect of the food cycle–during research, testing, product development, harvest, processing, packaging, service and sales.

In testing, research and development, weighing equipment is critical for maintaining sample integrity. When food products enter the processing phase, scales, balances and moisture analysers facilitate quality control. They can help to ensure freshness and quality of the product during packaging, and aid in determining proper expiration dates. Weighing equipment is invaluable for food service and sales, as it can measure produce at farm stands, weigh lunch meat at a delicatessen, or verify quantities of ingredients mixed into a batch of cookie dough at a bakery.

Ideal for food processing, Adam Equipment’s new Astro compact portioning scale offers user-friendly features for food service, preparation and catering tasks. The Astro offers durable, easy-to-clean stainless steel housing and a grade 304 stainless steel pan, which can be wiped down quickly and frequently to prevent the accumulation of food particles or residue. Compact in size, the Astro can be used anywhere, as it can be operated with batteries or the included AC adapter.

The WBW washdown scale has an IP66 rating, making it ideal for quality control in wet environments. WBW is well-suited for portion control during frozen food production, as it is easily wiped down to comply with sanitation requirements. The scale’s capacity tracker monitors weight when making batches or adding ingredients. WBW M models feature approvals for many regions, making them suitable for trade use.

The LBK is ideal for measuring portions and ingredients, or weighing samples during food preparation. The sealed keypad, ABS plastic housing and large stainless steel pan are easy to clean, making the LBK an excellent choice for bakeries, hotel kitchens or pizza restaurants.

The rugged durability of the Warrior washdown scale makes it a winning choice for batching or measuring large quantities in processing facilities. Checkweighing repetitive samples is simplified on the easy-to-read LED indicator. With an IP66 rating, grade 304 stainless steel base and dynamic weighing, the Warrior is ideal for measuring liquids, meat processing or other messy applications.

With simple operation and rapid response time, the PMB moisture analyser offers an easy way to help production workers assess contents of mixtures and batches, ensuring quality control. The automatic test-setting function enables easy recall for frequent testing of the same items without additional user programming.
