Gary Gilmore, plant manager at Exxon Chemical says "We really like our Hydrostatic railroad scale that we've had since 1989. This scale operates under extreme corrosive conditions, yet it has been the most reliable scale we have" Hydrostatic load cells are available in materials that will not corrode in corrosive applications where chemicals, salts, acids and oils are present.


Campbell Soup Company - CSC Brands, L.P. - Maxton "Numerous vendors and equipment manufacturers have said that their equipment was suitable for total washdown, but many of those manufacturers have backed down once they actually witnessed our processing requirements and the stringent measures we take to ensure cleanliness" says Campbell Soup's Maxton, NC plant manager.

WEIGHSQUARES sizes from 18" to 36" and capacities as high as 2,000 lbs are installed in the Maxton plant and have an excellent record of low maintenance. The "WEIGHSQUARES are field repairable. Re-calibration and expensive inventories of spare parts are not necessary".

The Rogers Group "These scales couldn't work better, in the coldest winter or the hottest summer. We push hundreds of trucks over the scales every day, with practically no problems. Weights and Measures inspectors come out and check these scales, and in seven years I am not aware of any adjustments needed."

- Ted Powell, Southern Indiana Aggregate Manager for The Rogers Group

"We get the price difference back many times over in the form of dramatically reduced downtime, fewer repairs and no replacement load cells." - Steve Valesko, Facilities Manager for Boars Head Provision Company. " I would not put electronic load cells into any meat plant. The water wreaks havoc with them, even hermetically sealed ones. A load cell failure would really mess up our production, and downtime is very costly" Mike Martella, Director of Operations for BOARS HEAD PROVISION COMPANY. BOARS HEAD PROVISION COMPANY  use Emery Winslow Scales in every plant, from WEIGHSQUARES to tank and floors.

"Our sanitation crew hoses down with 160 degree water at up to 600 PSI. In my 30 yrs in the meat industry, I have not seen electronic scales function very well, or for very long, under those conditions. We were always losing load cells, and having problems getting good weight readings" Jim McConnell, Plant Manager for ODOM'S TENNESSEE PRIDE. "Water is our worst enemy, and the scales were a major source of headaches. The Hydrostatic scales have significantly changed the focus of the things we would fight on a daily basis. Our scale issues have disappeared, and it has definitely helped us improve our process. A lot of that previous effort spent on scale problems now goes into making good products for our customers" Frank Howell, Director of Manufacturing Development, ODOM'S TENNESSEE PRIDE


                                                  
                
Just a note to further update you on our 60 ft. 70 ton Hydrostatic "RAMBO" scales."
"We regularly wash out these scales with a fire truck, and have never done anything to them since installing them in 1996 (10 yrs ago) so we knew they were tough! We just didn't know how Damn Tough. Two weeks ago we found out. During a thunder storm our scales took a direct, and I mean "Direct" hit. A truck driver that happened to be driving by to be loaded said he thought "he had met his maker". He also stated that a "fireball" went the entire length of the deck. Although it fried two computers in two separate buildings, the scales never missed a beat. Thanks again for selling us the toughest scales on earth, and if anyone has a hard time believing this just have them call me."
