This draft shield is compatible with all DRX-4 and DRX-5 Series scales. It is particularly useful when using the scale in environments with sizeable drafts that may be caused by fans, heaters or ventilation systems. The shield also protects the scale's pan from damage when operating in hazardous setting. The draft shield is made out of a non-static and transparent plastic; these properties allow weighing, compounding and pill counting operations to be conducted easily and accurately. Its large opening provides a comfortable access to the scale's weighing pan.
