Truck Weighbridge Installed For Weighing Scrap Metals

A truck weighbridge was recently installed and certified for trade use at the Advanced Metal Recyclers plant in Capalaba, Queensland. The truck weighbridge measures 20 metres long by 3.5 metres wide with a weighing capacity of 60 tonnes and will be weighing truck loads of scrap metal.

The truck weighbridge is fully hot dip galvanised and was manufactured in Brisbane by Accuweigh’s QWM branch using locally produced BHP steel. The truck weighbridge uses six heavy duty weighbridge load cells that are hermetically sealed to IP68 in a fully welded stainless steel housing. An Accuweigh R5000 digital weight indicator generates the weight readings for the truck weighbridge.

Due to the truck weighbridge’s positioning on a sloping site, the foundations use a semi-pit weighbridge design incorporating a side wall on the high side with an above ground open foundation on the low side.

Accuweigh is Australia’s largest supplier of weighbridges and has experienced weighbridge crews located in branches across Australia providing local state based backup and support in all mainland states.
