Accuweigh’s Newcastle branch have recently commissioned and certified a solar powered weighbridge for a shale quarry at Narrabri. The weighbridge manufactured by QWM was installed for Johnstone Concreting.
Due to the remote location of the weighbridge, solar power is used to charge batteries to operate a Ranger 5000 DC digital weight indicator which powers six WBC weighbridge load cells from QWM for a capacity of 60,000kg.
The single deck, above ground weighbridge is fully galvanised measuring 20m x 3m and will be used for weighing truck loads of shale to be delivered to local mine sites for use as a road base.
The client was responsible for the weighbridge civils with Accuweigh installing the weighbridge load cells, weighing electronics and the calibration and certification of the weighbridge.
