    Fairbanks Scales, Inc., the oldest scale company in the U.S. and the world’s leader in weighing equipment, announces the release of the new 5270 Series Monorail Scale, ideal for installation with an existing hanging monorail trolley line at high-output meat processing facilities. As product is moved along the monorail, a momentary pause on the Fairbanks 5270 Series Monorail Scale quickly and accurately captures the product’s weight before it is moved to the next processing station.

    The competitively priced new 5270 Series offers accurate and repeatable weighments. It is commercially approved and features an all stainless-steel construction that provides unparalleled durability.

    The 5270 Series works with any analog instrument, but pairing it with the Fairbanks FB2255 Series instrument is optimum because it features a monorail setting to meet United States Department of Agriculture requirements for a 0.1-pound tare.
