Adam Equipment Introduces the New Astro™ Compact Scale

Stainless-Steel Scale Practical for Use in Food Industry or Classrooms

OXFORD, CT--(Marketwired - August 15, 2016) - Adam Equipment, a leading supplier of balances and scales for professionals worldwide, recently added the Astro scale to its range of portable weighing equipment. Astro scales offer user-friendly features in a compact, sleek design.

All Astro models feature a large, durable grade 304 stainless-steel pan that accommodates ingredients, powders or a weighing container. Solid, one-piece construction and a sealed keypad reduce the chance of damage from foreign materials entering the scale. The all-stainless-steel housing can be cleaned quickly, preventing the accumulation of particles or spills.

Astro scales are available in three models:

  • ASC 2001 has a capacity of 2000g and readability of 0.1g.
  • ASC 4001 has a capacity of 4000g and readability of 0.5g.
  • ASC 8000 has a capacity of 8000g and readability of 1g.

Astro scales are ideal for weighing recipe ingredients, helping to maintain consistent results in small or large batches. For dietary control in health care facilities, individual food servings can be weighed on Astro to ensure they conform to size requirements. In university cafeterias, restaurants and most catering settings, proper portion measurement can help manage costs, optimizing profit margins.

Durable enough for young scientists, the Astro can be used in science classrooms. Readings are shown in green on the Astro's large display. If too much weight is placed on the scale, the green figures change to red, alerting the user of the error. The Astro also offers overload protection, helping prevent damage to internal components by students learning the concepts of weight and mass.

Simple operation with only two keys allows quick access to the weighing units (g, lb, and oz). Astro can be operated with two AAA batteries or the included AC adapter.

In addition to the new Astro range, Adam Equipment offers other compact and portable scales for lab, classroom or field settings.
