Truck Scale Installed for Waste Recycler In WA

A Truck Scale was custom engineered to minimise land usage at a hazardous waste treatment facility in Western Australia. Supplied by Accuweigh’s Willetton branch in Perth, the Truck Scales were installed into a shallow open pit to allow the weighing deck to be at ground level.

Pit mounted Truck Scales eliminate the need for land consuming access ramps as required for Above-Ground Weighbridges while semi-pit foundations also eliminate the expense for added civils of a fully In-Ground Weighbridge. The open pits on either side of the Truck Scale provide easy access to the loadcells for maintenance and cleaning purposes without the need for Confined Space Permits.

This fully Australian Made Truck Weighing Scale measures eighteen metres long by three & a half metres wide to allow more leeway for trucks that are required to immediately turn on or off the weighing deck when entering and exiting this site. The inherent strength of the concrete deck eliminates excessive flexing of the main beams under heavy vehicle loadings as experienced in cheaper steel deck Truck Scales.

All steelwork of Accuweigh’s Truck Scales is fully hot dip galvanised for superior corrosion resistance when used in external or corrosive environments. A Driver Control Station (DCS) was also supplied and commissioned to record all vehicle weights while a large digit remote display informs drivers of their vehicle weights.

Accuweigh is Australia’s largest supplier of Truck Scale Weighbridges with hundreds of existing installations across Australia. Superior Product Support is available locally from eight Accuweigh branches covering all mainland states.
