Product News: Mettler-Toledo Excellence XP Balances

Unmatched weighing performance in rough environmental conditions

Published: Wednesday, October 21, 2009 - 08:14

(Mettler Toledo Inc.: Columbus, OH) – Mettler Toledo, a leading global supplier of precision instruments and services, presents its Excellence XP Balances for weighing operations in difficult environmental conditions. The Excellence XP Balances set standards in hands-free weighing and cleaning, enabling customers to achieve optimal weighing performance and safeguarding their investments.

The conditions in the petrochemical industry are often challenging for analytical equipment, and balances in particular are exposed to oil or dirty samples and harsh environments. With valued-added features, the Excellence XP Balances have several advantages, which make them the perfect choice for use in petrochemical laboratories.

Automated doors

All Excellence XP analytical and microbalances are equipped with customized, adjustable, motor-driven windshields. Operating the balance, especially with gloves, is much easier and faster.

Hands-free operation with SmartSens and ErgoSens

All Excellence XP balances can be operated with the two built-in SmartSens IR sensors and up to two optional ErgoSens sensors. All weighing operations, including opening/closing the windshield, zero, tare and print /transfer results, can be performed without adding any impurities. This unique feature maintains the weighing performance and protects internal investments.

Efficient cleaning concept

Excellence XP analytical and microbalance windshields can be completely dismounted within seconds and efficiently washed, e.g., in a dishwasher. The mechanical concept of the SmartGrid "hanging" weighing pan means there are no difficult-to-reach gaps. The Excellence XP analytical and microbalances are therefore the perfect solution wherever frequent cleaning is required.

Protection against impurities

All Excellence XP balance displays have covers, which protect the touch screen from contamination. Designed as expendables, the covers are made of robust polypropylene and can be easily replaced, if required.
