Weigh It: Scales and Balances

Scales and More!

At Colorado Scale Center, we sell, service and install the finest scales from the smallest laboratory balance to the largest floor scales for all of your weighing needs. Choosing the wrong scale for any application can cost more than money. We have seen that from time to time when a customer “finds something online” or “just chooses a scale” it can result in production down-time and even worse, improper weighing results! When it comes to choosing a scale or balance for your company, let us help you select one that fits your needs and helps you save a significant amount of money and time. We have knowledge that can guide you through the process of choosing scales for formula control, check weighing, in line, in-motion check weighing, medical, batch control, and forklift scales.

Weigh It: Formula Control

Efficient Formula Control Equipment

Colorado Scale Center provides you the most efficient formula control equipment. Like a dripping faucet, bad batches can gradually drain your plant’s profits. Our Formula Control Scale can help reduce costs from wasted ingredients and bad batches. And with guaranteed consistent batches, your plant will run more efficiently, adding to profitability. Scaled formulas are saved as a digital record, far more accurate than the typical handwritten records used on most plant floors today. The digital format makes searching and analyzing production data fast and accurate. After records are saved, you can run easy to use and relevant reports such as:

  • Ingredient Usage
  • Operator Efficiency
  • Ingredient LOT Ids
  • Batch Totals and more

Our preferred Formula Control manufacturer is Doran Scales. Washdown safe scale design requires years of field experience and excellence in manufacturing and engineering. Doran Scales fulfills all this and more. Our industry leading 25 years serving the weighing needs of the rugged food processing industry as well as constant product improvement makes Doran the first choice.

Are you required to meet a timed deadline for a recall? Our formula control scale walks an operator through each portion of a formula and tracks the lot numbers of the raw ingredient, making a recall drill a breeze. And with our easy bar code reader and software, you’ll be able to complete a mock recall in minutes or seconds.
