Accuweigh’s Perth branch recently installed axle scales for the Mount Romance Sandalwood factory in Albany WA. The axle scales are used for weighing trucks carrying Biomass (waste wood chips) for boiler fuel.
The axle scales were installed in a shallow pit that was cut into the clients existing concrete hardstand. This location was suitable for the positioning of the axle scales which require level approaches and departures on both sides of the axle scales to achieve high accuracy axle weighings.
The SupaWeigh 4000 axle scales are an in-motion weighing axle scale which can be trade approved and does not required the truck to stop to weigh each axle. Trucks drive slowly over the SupaWeigh 4000 axle scales at 10KPH and the specialised axle scale integrator automatically acquires the weight of each axle.
No operator is required with the weighing sequence. The driver enters his truck ID then slowly drives the truck over the axle scales. After all, the axles have been weighed and the SupaWeigh 4000 axle scales automatically issue a weight ticket listing each axle’s weight plus the total vehicle weight. This data can also be transmitted to external logging devices as required.
