Adam Equipment (United Kingdom) - Press Release: A brand new waterproof stainless steel bench scale from British weighing scale manufacturers Adam Equipment offers “better protection than ever” – as the company expands its range to offer more to the food and drink production industry.
The Aqua ABW-S – which has received its IP68 certification meaning it has enough protection from moisture to be capable of submersion in up to 1.5 metres of freshwater for up to 30 minutes – joins a range of industrial scales available from the brand, which celebrates its 50th year in 2022.
The new scale boasts stainless steel construction, a compact size suitable for use on most worktops, and a rechargeable battery for added portability. Additionally, a range of capacity and readability options offer weighing up to 32kg, with readings as precise as 0.1g.
The IP68 rating means the Aqua ABW-S is well suited to food production and kitchen weighing applications. Strategically placed channels in the housing and a sealed internal design protects the scale’s components from water penetration.
After a simple washdown, the ABW-S – which is National Sanitation Foundation (NSF)-certified for food safety – is ready to go again. For additional safety, the ABW-S includes blue levelling feet which increase visibility while providing support to help keep the scale from sliding on a wet worktop.
Built to last, the scales feature a grade 304 stainless steel housing and platform, along with a sealed keypad. The generously sized pan (245mm x 180mm on most models and 300mm x 210mm for the ABW 32S model) is removable, making the ABW-S easy to clean and maintain.
Tom Storey, Head of Marketing for Adam Equipment, said: “The Covid-19 pandemic has made everyone much more conscious of the importance of hygiene and cleanliness. Washdown scales like the ABW-S are perfect for applications like food production and foodservice, where scales require frequent, thorough cleaning.
“The ABW-S is part of our growing range of scales for industrial weighing: now, we can offer a scale with better protection than ever.”
