An Innovative Solution White Paper The cost for hand-harvesting operations has steadily increased over the years without regard to the delivered-in price that growers receive. Growers spend more money on harvesting operations than for all other production costs combined, including fertilizers, sprays, irrigation and weed control. This cost squeeze, created by increasing costs and a constant or decreasing price for produce, results in diminishing profit margins for growers. Read more about how Fairbanks offered an innovative solution for a hand-harvesting operation.

Dimensioning Dimensional weight, often referred to as dim weight, reflects the package’s density—the amount of space the package utilizes in relation to its weight. To determine dim weight, a package’s length, width and height are multiplied, resulting in its cubic size, and then divided by 166 for domestic or 139 for international shipments. Read more about dimensioning here.

Foreign Body Detection For several years, production in the food, beverage and tobacco industries has become increasingly automated. This is due to larger production volumes, increasing demands on quality and higher costs. However, even in a well-managed, automated and mechanized food, beverage and tobacco industry, contamination of end products during production cannot be completely ruled out. It’s possible that contaminants are introduced through the addition of basic ingredients delivered during the production process. Read more about detecting foreign bodies here.

How to Weigh Portable Tanks Accurately In order for a portable tank system to have high system accuracy, it must have a rigid foundation that does not flex or bow, regardless of external influences. Realistically speaking, no system is perfectly rigid, but a system that limits its amount of flex will increase its chances of having higher system accuracy. Portable tank systems can perform as well as stationary systems if they follow this fundamental rule. Read more about weighing portable tanks here.

IP69K White Paper IP ratings are typically identified with the nomenclature of “IP” followed two or three characters, for example: IP68 or IP69K. The first character after the IP identifies the level of protection against the ingress of solid foreign objects. The second character identifies the level of protection against moisture/liquids. The third character is a special identifier used to provide additional information related to the protection of the device. A detailed explanation of these codes can be found at IP Code - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Read more about IP69K here

Is Force Measurement Evolving into Materials Testing? In the past force measurement generally meant obtaining a peak load measurement on a product, part or material to verify or validate that the product or part could exceed or withstand a specified load. Force measurement was generally accepted as a fairly innocuous test performed in the lab or on the production floor. Material testing, however, is considered the science of determining a product's physical characteristics. Read more about force measurement and material testing here.

Load Cell Application and Test Guidelines A load cell is a device that is used to measure weight or force. W hen a force is applied to it in a specific manner, a load cell produces an output signal that is proportional to the applied force. One end of a load cell is typically supported on a rigid structure while the other end supports a load-receiving device through which the load or force is applied. Load cells can be used individually or in combinations in weighing devices, as dictated by the geometry of the object to be weighed. Read more about load cells here.

PDQ Scale White Paper An area Sales manager (ASM) had developed a relationship with a local pipe company and uncovered an opportunity to help them with a scale solution. The pipe manufacturer had no means to confirm product / shipping weight. They were purchasing steel coils based on weight so they needed a scale to confirm the weight of the coils. This was not going to be a simple solution as it required an unusual nonstandard capacity coil scale and their need was extremely urgent—coils were already ordered and on their way! If the customer could not find a solution, and fast, this pipe manufacturer would be left with two unattractive options:

• They could take the steel coil manufacturer’s word for the weight of each coil—a 1% error would cost approximately $121,000. • They could pay a port holding fee for these coils until a scale was installed—up to $12,000 a day.

Scale Maintenance White Paper Do not be fooled by service companies selling scale maintenance agreements that lack focus on calibration. Calibration is the most important component of any periodic maintenance program. Companies purchase scales because product entering or exiting company facilities are determined to have value based on weight. Without assured scale accuracy, through regular calibration, a company can lose thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of dollars annually, due to inaccurate weights. Depending on the requirements and type of weighing device, annual maintenance costs for a truck scale run anywhere from $1,000 to $3,000. When measuring the pros and cons of maintenance costs, most users find that protecting against a weighing error can more than pay for a maintenance program and, often times, the cost of the scale itself.

Slope’s Effect on Accurate Weighing The scale is designed with the assumption that the load will be parallel to the direction of gravity and perpendicular to the weighing platform; meaning, there is only a vertical force. An uneven balance or scale causes the introduction of a horizontal force which affects the weight reading. The general rule of thumb is that if it’s an industrial application such as a floor scale as long as all of the feet are touching the ground the results will be within tolerance. For laboratories, however, and customers who want more than a general “rule of thumb” response there is actually a procedure for determining the exact effect the slope will have on the measurement.

Tank Weighing Woes: Why Load Cells have a Bad Reputation and What Needs to be Done to Fix it Many manufacturing facilities currently have load cells installed in tank systems that are no longer operational. Most of the times the load cells are left in place and the electrical cables connecting to the controls are simply cut. Production Managers, QC Managers, and maintenance personnel alike have surely encountered “that tank” or “vessel” which never weighed correctly.

TensileCore Engineered Concrete White Paper In just about any application, a concrete deck truck scale is a better long-term solution than a steel deck scale. When was the last time you drove across a steel bridge on the highway? Chances are every bridge you see is made of concrete. Strength, surface wear, maintenance needs and cost make concrete the best material for bridges. A truck scale no different, it is simply a bridge. With scale deck slab thicknesses of 4” to 8”, there is no comparison to ¼” or even ½” steel plate. Concrete doesn’t rust, bend, warp, dimple or otherwise wear out. Steel decks have a fixed lifespan. Once used up, a steel deck will need replacement. However, a concrete deck scale can last many, many years beyond a steel decks lifespan. Steel deck scales are usually sold when deadlines are looming, or buyers are unwilling to take on risks common with field installed concrete. If you think about it, it’s much easier to sell a steel deck than a concrete one. With traditional field pour concrete, the seller must manage two steps in the installation process rather than one. With concrete, the seller must manage the installation process and the concrete pour, finish and cure. What can happen is that steel deck scales are sold based on seller convenience rather than what the buyer really needs. Read more about how Fairbanks utilizes TensileCore Engineered Concrete.

The Benefits of Buying Local Businesses are turning to the Internet for a wide variety of purchases, including scales. Although convenient and sometimes less expensive, online purchases can be misleading. Knowing exactly what is being purchased from the Internet is essential— especially if the scale is going to be used in buying, selling or shipping applications. The scale may be falsely advertised as it may not meet regulatory standards for commercial scales in its country or state of use. Read more about the benefits of buying local here.

The Difference Between Open and Closed End Service White Paper Open-end service is the most typical type of service that is provided in the industrial weighing service industry. It is service that is paid for as the service is required, also known as “pay as you go.” The service may consist of periodic inspections that are pre-scheduled to your specific needs and requirements. It is “open-end” because there is no limit to the total cost of repairs. Closed-end service is the most uncommon type of service provided in the scale service industry. With a closed-end service plan, the extra costs are the responsibility of the service provider. With open-end service, the customer assumes the risk but with closed-end service, the scale service provider takes all the risk. This is the reason closed-end service is less common.   Read more about the Difference between Open and Closed End Service

USP Chapter 41: “Balances” This chapter states the requirements for balances used for materials that must be accurately weighed (see General Notices, 8.20). Unless otherwise specified, when substances must be “accurately weighed”, the weighing shall be performed using a balance that is calibrated over the operating range and meets the requirements defined for repeatability and accuracy. For balances used for other applications, the balance repeatability and accuracy should be commensurate with the requirements for its use. For discussion of the theoretical basis of these requirements, see general information chapter Weighing on an Analytical Balance 1251, which may be a helpful – but not mandatory – resource.
