Accuweigh installed three sets of heavy capacity scales at a sewerage treatment plant for Sydney Water to weigh the by-product generated during the sewerage treatment process.
Located in Wollongong, each of the heavy capacity scales has a weighing capacity of 120,000kg by 50kg divisions.
Each weigh hopper is positioned on six heavy duty 30t load cells using an Accuweigh R5000 digital weight indicator to provide the displayed weight readings, which are then transmitted via an analogue output signal to the host Scada system.
The waste sludge is fed into the heavy capacity scales by dual conveyors and then emptied into trucks for transportation from the sewerage treatment site.
The discharge process from the heavy capacity scales is regulated by the Scada system to eliminate the risk of truck overloading.
Accuweigh is Australia’s largest industrial weighing company and has eight branches across mainland Australia providing after sales service and support on weighing equipment of all types and capacities.
