Accuweigh’s Newcastle branch recently won a contract for providing weighbridge maintenance for RTA’s Kankool weighbridge near Tamworth. The maintenance contract involves weighbridge servicing, testing, calibration and certifications on a regular basic to ensure the weighbridge maintains high weighing accuracy.
RTA’s Kankool weighbridge is a multi-deck weighbridge comprising five individual weighbridge decks to enable all axle group weights to be displayed concurrently during a single vehicle weighing. The individual weighbridge decks have capacities of 20t, 30t, 30t, 30t & 60t for an overall total weighbridge capacity of 170t.
As well as performing the weighbridge maintenance, Accuweigh was required to fit upgraded external lightning protection to all 20 weighbridge loadcells, the five digital weight indicators and the summing indicator of the weighbridge. Five power supply filters were also fitted for further weighbridge protection against damage caused by a surge entering the weighbridge loadcells and electronics through the 240VAC inputs.
Accuweigh is an Australian largest industrial weighing company with weighbridge maintenance crews throughout Australia that perform service, testing and calibration duties on weighbridges of all types and brands.
