The HSDC scales are incredibly accurate and carry NTEP approval for weighing accuracy. DETECTO has developed hanging scales that can be used in food production ranging from supermarkets, butchers, produce stands, and restaurants, or even used in hardware stores and the recycling industry.

MCS Series, Dial

DETECTO’s MCS series hanging dial scales are built for commercial use in grocery store produce sections, farmers markets, butchers, and nut counters. DETECTO offers the MCS mechanical scale with a galvanized scoop and chains, bowl suspended by a steel bow, and also the dial by itself with two S-hooks. The large 8-inch-diameter dial is furnished with easy-to-read black graduations and numerals and a red knife pointer that indicates weight fast and accurately. The dial mechanism is protected by a clear lens while plastic housing eliminates dust and scratches. The MCS produce scale is offered in 20-lb and 40-lb capacities and includes two steel industrial-grade S-hooks (top and bottom). Double dials are available on some models, which offer viewing from either side of the dial. Designed for estimate weighing only (not legal for trade). Featured on TV’s “How It’s Made.”
