Dulux Paints have fitted their pallet trucks with Accuweigh ’s Hazardous Area Indicators and load cells in order to perform mobile weighing duties inside the restricted areas of Dulux Paints’ Rocklea factory in Queensland.
The Hazardous Area Indicators allow the operators to weigh the net volume of paint being decantered without the need to transfer the loaded vessels to a scale outside the safe area.
An industry standard pallet jack truck was fitted with four 1t beam load cells that were connected to the Hazard Area Indictors, which were used for weighing a capacity of 3000kg in increments of 1kg.
The hazard identifiers are powered by a sealed rechargeable 12 volt battery that is fitted under the pallet truck’s headstock. They can only be recharged by taking the pallet jack outside of the restricted area.
The Hazardous Area Indicators were supplied by Accuweigh QWM branch in Brisbane and includes after sales support services.
