Designed with all stainless-steel and washdown-rated components for wash-down and food-upgrade applications both types are identical in production rate accuracy and speed. Both require a single static calibration to provide accurate and repeatable weights throughout the range of the scale. The TSC 350 Checkweigher drag-chain style is used for weighing products such as eye dropper bottles. Sonic 350 features either 2 or 3 belt conveyors mounted to a common framework.
