How to Avoid In-Plant Contamination – Change Your Floor Scale!

If your business uses floor scales, you may understand the pains and dangers of microbial build-up. Food, pharmaceutical and chemical industries are no strangers to the devastating consequences of product contamination. With a standard washdown floor scale, removing the problem can be a problem in and of itself and with safety measures becoming more stringent, bacterial outbreaks are often sourced back to an in-plant contamination.

For the ultimate microbial resistance in sanitary environments, Grand Rapids Metrology can provide your operations with a RoughDeck QC-X washdown floor scale. The RoughDeck QC-X is the ideal complement to hygiene control programs as a multi-barrier protection system against dangerous, unsanitary hazards. Manufactured by Rice Lake Weighing Systems, this platform is designed to safeguard against microscopic bacteria and contamination in food processing, pharmaceutical and chemical applications. This floor scale is constructed from 304 stainless steel to provide rugged strength in the toughest hygienic environments.

The RoughDeck QC-X features extreme access, strength, and resistance.  With a top plate that opens 75°, the widest in the industry, accessing the entire scale interior to be inspected, washed, and cleaned is made easy. This optimal design uses a scale base built from solid, stainless steel plates to hold up against fierce pressure. The absence of tubes or channels allows for swift and easy cleaning which means no more worrying about missed microbial build-up.
