Accuweigh ’s QWM branch in Brisbane have installed two heavy duty weighbridges for Cement Australia’s Bulwer Island Plant. The weighbridges are located directly under the over-head cement silos to allow the trucks to be filled according to the net weight of cement registered by the weighbridges.
Both weighbridges are 28m long by 3.25m wide with the concrete decks fitted flush with the entrance and exits bays of the building for ease of truck access. Due to the uneven ground levels inside the plant, the weighbridge decks were poured outside and moved into the weighbridge bays after the decks had fully cured.
The weighbridges are configured for dual range weighing with a total capacity of 80 tonnes using 8 x PT HP C45 load cells each. An A&D 4323 digital weight indicator displays the weighbridge weight readings and relays data to both a Rinstrum D740 remote display and to Cement Australia’s own weighbridge software.
Accuweigh’s Brisbane south operation were recently merged with QWM’s Brisbane North weighbridge manufacturing facility for increased efficiency and improved cost effectiveness for clients of both operations.
