Drum Scales

Drum scales are a type of floor scale uniquely designed for measuring the weight of drums, barrels, or similar containers. These scales are essential in various industries where precise measurement of bulk materials is crucial for quality control, inventory management, shipping, and compliance with regulations. These scales are designed for strength and durability to withstand the weight and size of industrial drums, including 55 gallon drums, carboys and other large containers such as plastic and steel barrels. They combine a flat weighing surface with ramps on either end to facilitate easy loading and unloading of drums. Drum scales come in various configurations, including size, capacity and optional portability features.


Drum scales are widely used in the chemical industry to measure the weight of drums containing various chemicals and powders. Accurate measurements are crucial for precise formulation and compliance with safety regulations.  In food and beverage production, drum scales are employed to measure the weight of ingredients stored in drums, ensuring accurate recipe formulation and compliance with food safety. Drum weighing for shipping and logistics is necessary to accurately determine the weight of drums before transportation. This ensures accurate freight cost calculation, compliance with weight restrictions and facilitates proper handling during shipping.
