An Accuweigh inground, pit style weighbridge was recently commissioned at Worth Recycling’s treatment facility at Windsor, North West of Sydney. The pit weighbridge was purchased to enable the accurate weighing of trucks carrying waste liquids for recycling. Worth Recycling is a wholly Australian-owned Company that commenced operations in 1976 and has grown to be an industry leader in water and wastewater treatment processing technologies. Worth Recycling has developed and acquired a significant base of oily wastewater treatment technology from extensive in-house research and engineering activities.
Key features of the pit weighbridge installed by Accuweigh include:
- The 26 metre long weighbridge was pit mounted in order to keep the weighbridge width to a minimum
- Minimal impact on other traffic was a result of using the adjacent concrete hardstand on the pit weighbridge
- Metal access hatches are built into the concrete weighbridge deck to provide access to the weighbridge pit for servicing the weighbridge load cells and for cleaning purposes
- Accuweigh’s Sydney branch also supplied AASoftware’s weighbridge software to track all incoming and outgoing trucks to allow management reports to be generated listing all traffic and product movements
