Plumsteadville, PA (PRWEB) August 16, 2011 -- Scaletron Industries, Ltd., a manufacturer of corrosion resistant digital and mechanical scales, has announced the CSA Certification of their 1020 and 1099 Process Controllers, which provide accurate scale weights and automated use reports in water and wastewater treatment applications. The CSA Certification affirms that the 1020 and 1099 controllers meet the Safety Requirements for Electrical Equipment for Measurement, Control, and Laboratory Use, Part 1 and Enclosures for Electrical Equipment, Environmental Considerations specifications for CSA Certification.
'The CSA Certification communicates Scaletron’s commitment to safety and performance,” says Edward Dougherty, president of Scaletron Scales. “The CSA Certification process is intense. We’ve successfully met or exceeded the official CSA standards through the multi-step process of certification so that Scaletron’s customers can be even more confident in our products,” he says.
A product bearing CSA Certification marks means it has been tested and meets applicable standards for safety and performance, including the standards written or administered by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), Underwriters Laboratories (UL), Canadian Standards Association (CSA), NSF International (NSF), and others. Since 1919, CSA International has been a North American leader in product testing and certification, and has worked fervently with worldwide organizations and institutions to promote standards for consumer safety in North America and around the world.
The products certified, Scaletron’s 1020 and 1099 Process Controllers, are used to monitor usage, and inventory of process chemicals. They can be used with Scaletron’s 150 lb. and ton cylinder, drum, tank, platform, and spill containment scale frames. Both CSA-Certified controllers are housed in NEMA 4X, UL approved enclosures to provide protection from acids.
“Certification of our 1020 and 1099 Process Controllers is an ongoing process that involves follow up factory inspections and retail surveillance so we continue to meet the multifaceted specifications,” says Dougherty. “As always at Scaletron, safety and quality are paramount in our product offerings. Being able to include the CSA label on these controllers shows our customers how seriously we take our products’ safety in its applications.”
The CSA-certified marks are recognized by major retailers, manufacturers, distributors, and regulators across the country. For consumers, CSA International certification marks are intended to provide increased assurance of quality and safety.
