Shipping Container Weighing

Accuweigh’s Industrial Weighing Equipment Increases Grain Loading Efficiency.

Accuweigh’s Melbourne branch recently supplied industrial weighing equipment for fitting under a shipping container inverter at Prograin’s Laverton plant. The industrial weighing equipment allows shipping containers to be weighed while still on the inverter – eliminating the need for the container to be taken to a weighbridge for weighing.

The empty containers are loaded onto the container inverter by forklift and then tilted by hydraulic rams so that delivery trucks can fill grain at the desired angle. When full, the container doors are closed before the container is lowered back to the rest position for the industrial weighing equipment to weigh the net content of grain.

Four Flintec RC3 industrial load cells of 30t capacity were fitted to the container inverter for a working capacity of 32t with full trade approval.

Professional Grain Services (Prograin) specialises in packing bulk and bagged grain in shipping containers for export, as well as providing a range of value adding services such as fumigation, grain cleaning and grading.

Accuweigh is Australia’s largest industrial weighing company with branches in all mainland states offering full after sales service and support.
