Eliminate Vehicle Scale Service Issues and Improve Accuracy

Upgrade your load cell system with a METTLER TOLEDO Vehicle Scale Upgrade/Conversion Kits

You did your research and due diligence with your new vehicle scale purchase.  Obtained multiple quotes, negotiated prices, and maybe even talked with other owners. You got the lowest price possible. But when you were doing this research, you might not have realized that the largest ongoing maintenance expense for a scale with analog load cells is load cell replacement.  The load cell system represents about 76% of the lifetime maintenance cost of your scale. Think of the service and replacement fees, all adding up over 20 plus years. It is easy to see how the cheaper option up front, can quickly become a money pit in the long run.

METTLER TOLEDO Vehicle Scale Upgrade/Conversion Kits - lifetime cost of ownership

The good news is that you don’t need to live with the high maintenance cost for the next 5-15+ years. METTLER TOLEDO offers upgrade and conversion load cell kits that give you the benefits of the POWERCELL load cell advantage without replacing the scale.

METTLER TOLEDO Load Cell Upgrade/Conversion Kit Advantages:

  • Reliability – Actual field data shows that analog load cell systems account for 76% of ongoing maintenance costs over a scale’s life. These costs include not only parts and service repair, but profit lost due to downtime and lost business. While analog scales experience endless problems, POWERCELL® PDX® load cells have a failure rate of less than 0.02% – reliability you can count on.
  • Warranty – 100% coverage for 5 or 10 years means you don’t pay for replacement parts or service, a huge savings over analog systems.
  • Accuracy – Increased accuracy means less product give away and better inventory control. The savings add up quickly.
