Process Weighing Made Easy

Hardy helps manufacturers and processors by providing process measurement solutions that reduce waste, increase productivity and improve quality, often by up to 50% over prior systems. Our customers find Hardy’s people and solutions easy to work with and reliable, while delivering an exceptional return on investment.

Hardy offers a broad line of process weighing instrumentation, sensors and scales for use in a variety of applications including mixing/blending, filling/dispensing, check weighing, rate control/monitoring, level by weight, and force measurement.

Weight data is easily transferred directly to PLCs, DCSs and PCs via plug-in weigh scale modules or over interfaces such as EtherNet/IP, DeviceNet, ControlNet, Ethernet TCP, Remote I/O, Profibus DP, and Modbus TCP.

Industries such as pharmaceutical, food, cosmetic, chemical, petroleum, forest products, aggregate /mining, glass and automotive all rely on Hardy products and weighing expertise to provide timely, accurate data and control for their processes.

Hardy Process Toolbox

The Hardy Process Toolbox is a set of productivity tools that support industrial weighing functions. Each tool adds value by saving time, increasing accuracy, improving efficiency or reducing risk in process weighing applications, including WAVERSAVER® to eliminate vibration, C2® electronic calibration and Integrated Technician® to name just a few.

Your Partner in Process Measurement Since 1918

Hardy Process Solutions began in 1918 as Hardy Scales. Since then we've designed, built and installed virtually every type of scale imaginable. In 1984 Hardy Scales was purchased by Dynamic Instruments, Inc. and we changed our name to Hardy Instruments, Inc., and in 2011 to Hardy Process Solutions, as we redefined our business focus.

Since 1984 we've developed a full product line of Process Weighing solutions. We have listened to our customers and focused the company's design efforts on solving the most difficult challenges in process control and industrial weighing:

  • With WAVERSAVER®, we eliminated the effects of vibration on scale readings
  • With Remote I/O, we were the first company to connect weighing instrumentation to Allen-Bradley PLCs without programming software drivers
  • C2® eliminated the need for test weights when calibrating and INTEGRATED TECHNICIAN® allows system diagnostics and troubleshooting from the instrument
  • For further integration with Rockwell Allen Bradley PLCs we were the first weighing company to develop add-on-profiles.

Our ADVANTAGE® line of Load Points and Load Sensors have elevated the standard load cell transducer to a new level making extra cost features standard and making their certs available online 24/7.

In 2007 Hardy was acquired by Roper Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: ROP) and is now part of its Energy Systems and Controls group. Roper is a diversified technology company with annual revenues of $3.6 billion, providing engineered products and solutions for global niche markets, including software information networks, medical, water, energy, and transportation. Roper is a component of the S&P 500, Fortune 1000 and Russell 1000 Indexes and trades on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol ROP.
