PrimoWeigher combination scales manufactured by CombiScale Inc. of Opa Locka, FL are well-known for having the most advanced operating system available on the market today.

Equally so, the PrimoWeigher has many mechanical benefits that help operators maximize productivity, minimize downtime, and simplify maintenance, with an important caveat of how the PrimoWeigher addresses the issue of food safety.

For facilities that employ HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) preventive principles, the PrimoWeigher has been designed to reduce cleanup time in half and eliminate areas where biological hazards can reside.

With an uncluttered open frame design, the entire scale is easy to access. With tool-less rotating center hopper, vibratory pans, buckets, product and discharge chutes, the PrimoWeigher can be stripped down to the core in minutes for washdown. It is simple to clean, as there are no areas for product and water to accumulate thereby preventing bacteria and parasites any hiding places.

Built with food-grade 304 stainless steel, the PrimoWeigher is available in 10-, 14-, 16-, 20-, and 24-head configurations with 1.5-, 2.5-, and five-liter bucket sizes operating at speeds up to 80 to 200+ cycles per minute. Electronics are centrally and conveniently located in a remote mounted electrical enclosure at eye level assuring safety of electronics during washdown and from machine vibration.

The PrimoWeigher has been designed with all stakeholders in mind. Operators can easily set-up, operate, clean, and changeover the scale with the 360 operating system and array of mechanical features. Managers benefit with planning and scheduling features as well as automatic reports and alerts. Stakeholders profit from reduced labor costs, downtime, and increased productivity.

Most importantly, the PrimoWeigher helps packaging companies deliver safe products to consumers.
