Camaweigh Heavy Duty Crane Scales
Heavy duty crane scales are just the same with ordinary crane scales but the only difference is that they are built with thick steel which can withstand any external forces. Heavy duty crane scales from Camaweigh are extremely strong and handle being hit and banged up. This type of crane scale is battery operated. The heavy duty crane scales offered by Camaweigh all have passed the OIML requirement for Class lll. Camaweigh offers different kinds of heavy duty crane scales with different weight capacities. The maximum weight capacity available is up to 50 tons. Camaweigh’s heavy duty crane scales are great for use in all kinds of applications. This is because of the digital indicator it has attached to it which gives operators the ability to read it immediately. Ordinary types of crane scales would need to be wired to an external scale indicator. Fortunately, Camaweigh’s heavy duty crane scales all have wireless capability can transmit load data to a scale indicator from even far away. Camaweigh’s heavy duty crane scales also can be controlled using a remote control. Camaweigh offers two different models of heavy duty crane scales. Each model varies from their weight range capacities. Camaweigh’s heavy duty crane scales are equipped very thick steel hook which can handle 360° rotation without breaking.
Types of Crane Scales
Crane scales, which are alternately called as hanging scales, are a type of industrial weighing scale which functions slightly different than the other ordinary scales. This is because instead of the normal weighing of putting the object or load to be weighing on a platform, it is hanged on the hook of the crane scale. Crane scales are basically a crane which is equipped with a load cell. There are two types of crane scales, analog and digital. But for industrial applications, digital crane scales are always used and are recommended than analog. The reason for this is that digital crane scales make use of load cells for measuring the weight of any object it is used on. Each variant of crane scales have their own maximum weight capacity depending on its load cell. Industrial heavy duty crane scales need to be accurate and strong enough to lift up objects which are very heavy. Heavy duty crane scales are most often found in the shipping industry. They are used to transfer and load crates and trailers onto carrier boats. Crane scales are very important because ships and boats have their own load capacities. It is very dangerous to overload boats and ship because they can have the possibility to capsize.
How to Use Heavy Duty Crane Scales
When attaching the heavy duty crane scales unto the crane hook, it is very critical to determine the dimensions of the overhead crane scale to ensure that it fits and isn’t very tight. There should be room between the crane scale loop and the overhead hook. This is very important so that it can get an accurate weight reading. Also, having a tight fit between the crane scale loop and the overhead crane hook is very dangerous and can lead to it breaking and causing accidents. When the loads are attached on the hook, its weight will be transmitted wirelessly to the scale indicator.
To have an efficient loading system using crane scales, it is best use a fixed crane scale which has the desired maximum load capacity allowed on the loading platform. For example, if the maximum load of the ship is only 30 tons, then it is best to use 30 tons crane scale. Once the maximum allowable weight of 30 tons is exceeded, an overload indicator light will be activated, informing the operator of the overload. Camaweigh’s crane scales have very long battery life and can be used of up to 50 hours of operation.
