Weightron Plays a Vital Part in Attempting to Break a Guinness World Record
Last Friday the 26th October 2018 Weightron played a vital part in the ‘Sauerkrautathon’, an attempt at breaking a record and producing the largest batch of Sauerkraut in a single day. The event took place in the centre of Wells in Somerset.
The fermented sauerkraut was weighed on one of Weightron’s Model PRM 600 kg capacity, low profile, stainless steel floor scale connected to their versatile DD1050 touch screen weight terminal. The hygienic PRM is ideal for food applications and features a gas lift platform to enable thorough wash-down cleaning after use.
The vegetables had been sliced and diced two weeks prior to the weigh-in by over 150 volunteers and then stored in large tubs to allow the all-important fermentation process to take place. In front of a large crowd, Andrew Wilson, the official weights and measures witness confirmed that, together, the team of volunteers had made 359.6 kg of delicious, tangy sauerkraut, wholly fit for consumption.
Footnote: All this effort has not gone to waste – after the weigh-in, the sauerkraut has been packaged and distributed to outlets and individuals around the County. Meanwhile, Jo and Katie now need to deliver all the documentation to Guinness and then wait to see if they have set a Record. They hope their record will soon be broken!
