Scale Maintenance and Calibration Services in Alberta
Like any machine or piece of equipment, your scales will wear down with constant and frequent use. Temperature fluctuations, humidity, dust and dirt can affect your scale’s performance and cause “scale drift.” Accurate/Western Scale Co. Ltd. offers pre-scheduled scale calibration, maintenance and repair services for commercial customers in Alberta.
How Scale Calibration Works
When calibrating your scale, a certified technician will take a reading using an internationally approved standardized test weight. If the technician finds any deviation, they can adjust the scale accordingly until the measurement is exact.
When you get your scale professionally calibrated, the technician will clean the scale’s internal and external parts, inspect the scale for any damage and make the necessary repairs.
Benefits of Regular Scale Maintenance
Regularly calibrating and maintaining your scales has many benefits for your business:
More efficient inventory tracking
Reduced downtime with proactive, on-site repairs
Improved compliance with transportation load regulations
Reduced stress on your fleet
Improved customer confidence
Better inventory, more trust and less downtime all equal one thing: increased profits.
When to Calibrate and Maintain Your Scales
Maintenance schedules vary from scale to scale, but there are some basic rules to follow. Calibrate your scale following these guidelines:
Follow the manufacturer’s instructions. Scale manufacturers will give a recommended maintenance schedule in the user’s manual.
Accidents happen, and if the scale has been dropped or a chemical is spilled onto it, you should get it calibrated and cleaned immediately.
Calibrate your scale before and after a major project when you know you’ll be using your scale frequently and collecting lots of important data.
When you sign up for a pre-scheduled maintenance plan, we’ll do all the scheduling for you, so you won’t have to worry about your scales going too long without a checkup.
