Rice Lake Scales help break World Records

Posted on April 27, 2016

To celebrate Qzina Institute of Chocolate’s 30th anniversary, pastry chefs created the world’s largest edible chocolate sculpture, breaking the previous Guinness world record of 10,736 pounds and setting a new record of 18,239 pounds. The sculpture, six feet tall and ten feet wide, had a base that weighed more than 3,000 pounds. This Mayan
chocolate temple is a replica of the Temple Kukulkan based in Chichen Itza, Mexico. Mayans worshiped the cacao tree and praised its beans as the food of the gods. The giant chocolate pyramid was measured and weighed on a
special digital scale system devised for the event by ABCO Scale of Ontario, California. They arranged four 4 foot by 4 foot Rice Lake RoughDeck floor scales under the corners of a 12 foot by 12 foot platform. The scales sent data to a 920i Indicator/Controller. The 920i summed up the four scales and provided an accurate total weight that the Guinness judges accepted as proof.
