Sort losses can have a major impact on revenues from pigs sent to slaughter. These losses can be minimised through the weighing of pigs using animal scales. The ETW 300 are lightweight and manoeuvrable scales that can be moved easily to wherever they are required. These scales are often also used as sorting scales for gilts (checking the udder). The key features of the pig scales are listed below: Design The single animal scales / sorting scales are manufactured and welded entirely from aluminium. The aluminium chequer plate floor is non-slip. Four high-quality, laser-welded, nickel-plated tool steel load cells (each with a capacity of 1,000 kg) ensure accurate measuring results. As with all BOSCHE scales, all the cables and load cells are integrated in the frame, which protects the electronics of the scales against dirt and rodents. The self-supporting sides allow the animals to walk through upright. The low step height of 58 mm is a suitable height for the pigs and saves time during weighing. A holder for two pens and two spray cans is also supplied as standard. Indicator with large display The indicator with its large 50 mm digits is backlit and can be read clearly from every angle. The pig scales have been developed specifically for weighing live animals. A special software program guarantees fast weighing even of restless animals. The integrated battery permits up to 70 hours of operation.
