A concrete deck weighbridge was recently commissioned for weighing truck loads of decorative pebbles for Oz Pebbles at Spring Creek in Queensland. Manufactured by Accuweigh’s QWM branch in Brisbane, this concrete deck weighbridge is ideally suited to the heavy truck loadings and high traffic volumes expected at this busy operation.
Based on an above ground design, this weighbridge is fitted with a concrete weighing deck measuring 20 metres long by 3.5 metres wide and is positioned at the plant entrance to minimise traffic movements. To optimal corrosion resistance, all steelwork is hot dipped galvanised to suit the rugged working environment.
The heavy concrete deck is supported on six AccuCell 30 tonne capacity weighbridge load cells which are sealed to IP68 in fully welded stainless steel. Two high visibility external remote displays relay the weight readings to the truck drivers when entering or leaving the plant over the weighbridge.
Accuweigh is Australia’s largest installer of weighbridges and has weighbridge crews and test trucks in each mainland state providing industry leading service support on all types of truck scales and weighbridges.
