Washdown

National Scale Technology provides a comprehensive line of measurement and weighing equipment that is designed to meet the unique cleaning needs and rigorous demands of washdown situations. National Scale Technology offers checkweighers, floor scales, bench scales and balances for applications that require sanitary environments, such as chemical and food processing facilities, medical environments and laboratories.

Ingress protection (IP) ratings recognize levels of protection against the ingress of water, dust and solid objects. The very first number that follows IP identifies the protection level against various solid objects, such as dust. The second number is the protection level against forms of moisture. From floor and bench scales and balances to checkweighers and in-motion weighing, National Scale Technology offers numerous products with different IP ratings that can meet any washdown need.

IP Ratings

  • IP69K – Dust-tight – Will withstand high-temperature and high-pressure water.
  • IP68 – Dust-tight – Will protect against water when submerged at 15 meters deep.
  • IP67 – Dust-tight – Will protect against water when submerged at one meter deep.
  • IP66 – Dust-tight – Will protect against high-pressure water that is projected from any direction.
  • IP65 – Dust-tight – Will protect against low-pressure water that is projected from any direction.
  • IP64 –Dust-tight – Will protect against splashed water.

NEMA Type 4 and Type 4X have the same protections as IP66.

When selecting any equipment for washdown settings, it is important to choose equipment that is durable and rugged. The construction needs to offer corrosion resistance and moisture protection, which is why stainless steel material is ideal. Some pieces of equipment, such as floor scales and others that will be on the floor, are equipped with non-skid support feet for improved safety.

National Scale Technology offers checkweighers, floor scales, bench scales and balancers for applications that require washdown environments. Our staff can assist you in selecting the best-suited equipment for your specific needs.
