Weigh hoppers are often large containers mounted on load cells. Occasionally, their design may accommodate for easy calibration with the placement of test weights at or near ground level. Often, however, test weights used to calibrate the scale must be placed at height, which represents a significant risk to any service technician. The safety of our service technicians is very important to us, and because of Duty of Care and Chain of Responsibility obligations it should also be very important to… Read More
