UK weighing scales manufacturer, Marsden, has launched a new range of scales with IP68-certified protection from water - making them ideal for breweries. The range includes waterproof scales suitable for weighing ingredients and kegs right up to palletised goods. Their IP68 rating means the scales can cope with water, dust and being washed down after use - crucial for keeping everything clean and hygienic. Each scale features Marsden’s brand new IP68 indicator. Previously, Marsden- branded IP68-certified scales only had an IP67-certified indicator. Marsden’s Managing Director, Richard Black, said: “A huge number of industries depend on waterproof equipment. Now, the brewing industry can benefit from a range of scales that are tough enough for a brewery environment, and last year after year. “There is very little like it on the market - and even less at this price.” Operations Director, Mark Coates, added: “We want Marsden scales to be the brewer’s first choice for weighing equipment. We hope this range of stainless steel scales answers a lot of people’s needs!” The range can be viewed at https://www.marsden-weighing.co.uk/ index.php/industrial-scales/ i-400ss-scales.html Marsden launches new waterproof scales - perfect for breweries NINKASI Brewkit Rentals - a real family affair!
