Our roots go back to 1996 although Scale Designs became official in 2005.
In 1996, the Royster Clark plant in Paris, TN was looking for a new approach to fertilizer scales. They were tired of the endless and expensive maintenance, repairs and replacements required with mild steel mechanical scales. Finally, someone with experience in electronics and mechanics was listening.
We were ready to take the plunge and go for NTEP Certification.
As a small company we did not use a controlled environment for the grueling and expensive NTEP testing process. We worked with a fertilizer distributor in Missouri that wanted our scale and was willing to take a chance on our success. Testing procedures were conducted by an NTEP representative sent from Kansas and was closely observed by a long time and highly regarded inspector from Missouri Weights & Measures.
Scale Designs' developers were fascinated by the idea of imagining solutions that come to life in hostile environments. We were able to tell you that, finally, in 2005, we had a proven solution to your fertilizer scale problem.
USA-made electronic stainless steel fertilizer blender, weigh-hopper, tank scales were designed with fertilizer in mind but are well suited for weighing, filling, batching other material or liquid.
