Weigh Bridge Sold to North QLD Council

A Concrete Deck Weigh Bridge was recently installed at a landfill site for a council in North Queensland. Supplied by Accuweigh’s QWM branch in Brisbane, the Weigh Bridge is being used for weighing all vehicles entering and leaving the council’s landfill site.

Concrete Deck Weigh Bridges are much better suited for heavy duty weighing applications than lightweight steel deck Weigh Bridges due to the immense strength that the reinforced concrete adds to the Weigh Bridge’s structural integrity. The added strength prevents the Weigh Bridge deck from continual flexing and sagging under heavy loads which, over time, can lead to expensive repairs for a lightweight steel deck Weigh Bridge.

All steelwork in Accuweigh’s Concrete Deck Weigh Bridge is fully hot dip galvanised for superior corrosion resistance in industrial environments and external applications. Measuring twenty metres long by three metres wide, this heavy duty concrete deck Weigh Bridge has a weighing capacity of sixty tonnes and is supported on six heavy duty AccuCell Weigh Bridge load cells of thirty tonnes capacity each.

An Accuweigh IT3000 series digital weight indicator generates the weight readings which are relayed to two large digit remote displays to allow drivers to see their vehicle weights from within the truck’s cab. A truck access platform was supplied for added driver safety when exiting and entering their vehicles and an ATCO hut was also installed for use as the Weigh Bridge Office.

Accuweigh/QWM is Australia’s largest supplier of Weigh Bridges and has extensive industry experience with all other forms of vehicle weighing, including wheel weighers, axle scales and onboard vehicle weighing systems. Eight Accuweigh branches across mainland states provide Superior Product Support on all scales and weighing products.
