What is An Explosion Proof Truck Scale?
Explosion-proof electronic truck truck scales / Weighbridges are adopting utility model patented technology. Explosion-proof system is
formed by installing the relevant explosion-proof weighing appliances and explosion-proof weighing modules on the weighing platform.
Elimination or cutting of links in the system that may generate explosion sources (electrical short-circuit sparks, electrostatic friction sparks,
high-temperature energy concentration, etc.) to achieve the purpose of using the instrument in explosive atmospheres.
Why You Need An Explosion Proof truck scale?
An explosion proof truck scale not only protects your employees, but it also helps your business as well. With high-quality safety devices, you
avoid any injuries or potentially fatal situations. This creates an all-around safer workplace and environment. Your business and workers can
rest assured that their safety is a top priority.
1. Access to AC power is limited, nor non-existent
A unique property of most explosion-proof truck scales is that they utilize low-voltage DC to run the truck scale. If you’re truck scale needs
to be in a location where AC power is not accessible, an explosion-proof truck scale might be a robust solution that would otherwise be difficult
2. High-explosive areas
We service truck scales for companies that handle explosives used in demolition. These facilities absolutely cannot have a spark, because of the
volatility of the products. Companies like these have special precautions that are often taken to reduce risk, such as doing as much work outside
of the highly volatile areas as possible.
3. Chemical facilities
Chemical facilities have toxic vapors that won’t necessarily cause an explosion, but are ignitable. Often these areas have explosion proof indicators
installed with a need to keep the electronics intact. We have worked with a chemical facility in troubleshooting a vessel truck scale whose indicator
was installed in a very hazardous area. We were able to get access to the indicator, troubleshoot it, and found a power issue. We couldn’t
troubleshoot the truck scale with standard devices due to it being in the hazardous environment.
Explosion proof truck scales are the best way you can better protect your business in hazardous environments. It is the one investment that
you need to make to avoid any potential fatal situations. These intrinsically safe devices can have a huge impact on your business. Accidents
can happen. Be prepared, and protect everyone from these types of situations when possible.
