ThermoFisherScientific1The Thermo Fisher Scientific Versa platform has a new checkweigher line for dry applications. The Thermo Scientific Versa Flex (fixed height) and Versa Flex GP (height-adjustable cantilever) checkweighers are designed to improve accuracy and reliability, while decreasing product giveaway, maintenance and total cost of ownership.

The line targets dry applications such as baked goods, snack foods, prepared foods, condiments, pastas/rice/beans, baking ingredients (flour, sugar, etc.); personal care products such as diapers, soaps and creams, as well as pharmaceuticals.

“Our existing Versa checkweighers have been built to accommodate IP65 washdown for wet product applications. However, the washdown capability was an unused feature for companies packaging dry products. We developed the Versa Flex models to make precision checkweighing more affordable for companies that previously couldn’t justify the expenditure,” said Rick Cash, product manager, checkweighers, Thermo Fisher Scientific.

Checkweigher models that target dry products are easy to integrate into operations that already run wet products. Because the entire Versa line shares a large percentage of common parts and maintenance procedures, companies can benefit from deploying the platform throughout the plant.

The Versa Flex and Versa Flex GP checkweighers offer easy-to-read touch screens with multiple language options. Frames have been designed to minimize food build-up, and rapid-release conveyors and belts also help simplify maintenance.

The units meet or exceed a variety of regional and international standards. Proprietary software with advanced automatic-zero algorithms has been designed to facilitate accuracy over time, regardless of environmental conditions.

Thermo Fisher Scientific is a leader in serving science, with approximately 50,000 employees in 50 countries. The company’s goal is to enable our customers to make the world healthier, cleaner and safer.
