UltraHawke Scales and Systems manufactures a range of above ground weighbridges, one of which was recently installed at the Tip Top Poultry farm at Nagambie in Victoria.
Above ground weighbridges are suitable for a variety of uses, with the farm using their new installation to weigh truckloads of chickens out of the farm, and for incoming grain and feeds.
This Ultrahawke weighbridge is trade approved, and fitted with a concrete weighbridge deck that measure 20 metres long by 3.5 metres wide.
Fully hot dip galvanised metalwork offsets the effects of corrosion, with the weighbridge positioned on six heavy duty flinted RC3 load cells, which are manufactured in stainless steel and rated to IP68 for full hermetic sealing.
A Rinstrum 5230 digital weight indicator has been adopted in the system to display the weight reading of trucks on the weighbridge, print weight tickets and also store critical weighbridge transaction data for management reporting purposes.
