Hanging scales are also known as crane scales. They are often made of durable steel and cast aluminum to lift heavy items. Therefore, they are the most rugged and reliable members of the commercial scales family. These heavy-duty hanging scales feature a top hand grip, a digital or analog face to reflect the weight, and a bottom hook. You can weigh your ingredients by attaching them to the hook and holding the hand grip. You can hang the top hook from the ceiling or a firm fixture in your kitchen for heavier weights.
When selecting your commercial hanging scale, two points are crucial: accuracy and weighing capacity. Digital hanging scales are more accurate than dial ones. They are also easier to read, even in dark environments. The hook weighing scales are primarily designed for industrial use and have a high capacity. For instance, Tor-Rey hanging scales’ weighing capacity can go up to 30 thousand pounds. They come with a wireless remote control to weigh heavier loads safely from a distance.
Since hanging scales do not have a platform or platter to hold the weights, they are ideal for irregularly-shaped objects. You can put your produce, meat, poultry, or other items into your food bag and fit it to the hook. You can thus minimize food contact and contamination risks. Also, they do not need any counter or floor space. You may also wish to see other commercial scales for different missions of your business to get more accurate results.
