Ohaus Valor Xtreme 3000 compact scales from Ohaus offers a stainless steel design, making it an extremely durable weighing balance. The Ohaus Valor V31XW3 features a 3000 gram maximum weighing capacity, and a 1 gram readability. Valor series stainless steel scales feature an overload protection of up to 10 times its maximum weighing capacity which is perfect for tough environments that often exceed the capacity of their weighing scales.
Valor Series stainless steel scales include adjustable filtering and stability settings that allows accurate scale operations even in drafty and unstable conditions. Ohaus SmarText software makes operating the compact scale easy to do since the scale operator is guided through text-prompts that walk you through the setup and weighing application process.
Extreme Design Extreme design means OHAUS took a clean sheet design and focused on offering the most durable and portable portioning product available. The Valor 3000 Xtreme is the highest precision scale in its class with complete stainless steel construction – both top and bottom housings are made of T304 stainless steel. For use in wet applications, the Valor 3000 Xtreme offers an even higher level of protection by offering full NEMA 4X/IP65 water resistant models. All Valor 3000 Xtreme models are USDA-AMS accepted, NSF listed/certified, and will support a HACCP certified system. Valor 3000 Xtreme is battery powered for maximum portability and convenience. Valor 3000 Xtreme features QuadraStance, with four wide adjustable feet ensure that the scale stays ultra-secure and slip free during operation in wet or dry conditions, on any surface.
Extreme Overload and Shock Protection All OHAUS products are designed to be the most rugged and durable products on the market, and the Valor 3000 Xtreme is no exception. Leveraging advanced overload and shock resistance technology found in the Scout® Pro, OHAUS designed the Valor 3000 Xtreme's overload protection system to provide ten times capacity overload protection. This extreme overload protection makes each Valor 3000 Xtreme ideal for tough environments where scale capacity is exceeded regularly.
Extreme Performance The Valor 3000 Xtreme has a rugged design, combined with high precision weighing cells offering resolutions up to 20,000d. Every scale has user adjustable stability, filtering and auto zero settings allowing Valor 3000 Xtreme to operate in drafty and unstable environments.
Extremely Friendly Every Valor 3000 Xtreme is designed with OHAUS' SmarText™ interface that utilizes a bright backlit LCD and simple English text prompts to guide users through application use and scale setup.
Application Modes The Valor 3000 Xtreme series is loaded with software specifically designed for simple use and maximum throughput. Application modes include:
Percentage Weighing This mode is great for compounding, mixing ingredients and formulation allowing users to compare the weight of a sample as the percentage of a reference weight. This function allows for quick portioning and checking of multiple samples against a target, and for quickly preparing multiple samples of the same size. The Valor 3000 Xtreme can automatically compute Baker's Percentages, eliminating guesswork and speeding use.
Specific Gravity Determination This mode is perfect for rapidly and easily determining the specific gravity of a sample without the need for manual calculations. Not only can this be critical in materials testing, it is also useful for checking aeration of mixes for food processing and food service applications. Standard Features Removable stainless steel pan, digital external calibration software, selectable environmental settings, fast stabilization with selectable Auto-tare, integrated level bubble (select models) and adjustable feet, bright backlit display, selectable Auto-Off, selectable weighing unit, selectable power-up unit, included AC power adapter, OIML type approved models available (select models)
Approvals Food Service: NSF Listed/Certified to NSF/ANSI 169-2005 Special Purpose Food Equipment and Devices (formerly NSF C-2); USDA/AMS Accepted to NSF/3-A 14159-1 Hygiene Requirements for the Design of Meat and Poultry Processing Equipment; meets requirements for HACCP conformity.
