Product information "Animal scale ETW ZB"

Weighing losses can have a profound effect on revenues from pigs for slaughter. These losses can be minimised through the weighing of pigs using animal scales. The ETW ZB are lightweight and manoeuvrable scales that can be moved easily to wherever they are required. These scales are often also used as sorting scales for gilts (checking the udder). The most important features of pig weighing are listed under "Design".

Design

The single animal scales / sorting scales are manufactured and welded entirely from aluminium. The aluminium chequer plate floor is non-slip. Four high-quality, laser-welded, nickel-plated tool steel load cells (each with a capacity of 1,000 kg) ensure accurate measuring results. As with all BOSCHE scales, all of the cables and load cells are integrated into the frame, which protects the electronic components of the animal scales against dirt and rodents. The self-supporting sides allow the animals to walk through upright.

The low step height of 58 mm is a suitable height for the pigs and saves time during weighing. A holder for two pens and two spray cans is also supplied as standard.

Indicator with large display

The indicator with its large 50 mm digits is backlit and can be read clearly from every angle. The pig scales were developed specifically for weighing live animals. A special software program guarantees fast weighing even of restless animals. The integrated battery enables up to 35 hours of operation.

Easy to use

The front gate can be controlled remotely by a lever mechanism, which means that only one person is required for weighing the pigs. Wheels are mounted on the front of the scales for easy transportation. To transport the scales, lift the scales into an upright position using the handles and push them like a wheelbarrow.
