Calibrations

Truck Scales
Weigh scales are precision measuring devices having much higher accuracy and resolution than other measuring devices such as time, linear volumetric measuring, etc. Scales must operate in adverse environments such as industries with vibration, impact loading, high humidity, exposure to contaminants and corrosive chemicals or outside environments with extreme high and low temperatures and exposure to rain, hail, sleet, snow ice and dirt.

Due to the nature of scales and the environments they operate in, scales require re-calibration on a regular basis, in most cases a minimum of once a year. In some instances where there is a high cost commodity being weighed, a case can be made for re-calibration on a monthly basis. Active Scale offers affordable calibration services from our trained professional technicians using traceable Measurement Canada Certified Mass Standards.
