The latest generation of combination scale, the PrimoWeigher 360 from CombiScale LLC, promises to reduce wash down time by 50% so that more time can be spent packing produce.
The PrimoWeigher 360 is an open-frame scale and has a remote control panel and a handheld controller.
Open-frame design allows for easy access to all components, according to a news release. Tool-less buckets, chutes, pans and center hoppers can all be pulled off quickly by hand. The open design also makes service easier, according to the Opa Locka, Fla., company.
The PrimoWeigher 360 has a center hopper that pivots out of the way, unlike other four-post hoppers, to simplify cleaning and product changeover. The height of the hopper adjusts with the removal of just one pin.
The panel with core electronics is remote from the scale to eliminate the possibility of water damage during wash downs.
