Ultra Hawke recently supplied a portable 30t weighbridge to Palmer Agricon in Victoria for weighing farm vehicles.
The 6m x 3m steel weighbridge had to be portable as it is continually relocated to minimize travel times during weighing operations in the various properties where the weighbridge is to be used.
Palmer Agricon required a system that was easy to relocate on a daily basis and would supply them with accurate axle weights for their farm vehicles.
A 6m x 3m 30,000kg self contained portable weighbridge was constructed at Ultra Hawke’s dedicated weighbridge manufacturing facility in Cambellfield, Victoria.
The weighbridge is a two part design with the weighing deck totally protected within a self contained steel frame fitted with lifting lugs to make loading and unloading a simple matter.
The weighbridge is placed onto a flat and level surface (generally crushed rock or compacted soil) and earth ramps are built up to the approaches.
The weighing components consist of four heavy duty Flintec loadcells sealed to IP67 in a stainless steel housing and mated to an Avery E1005 battery powered, digital weight indicator with remote display for portable operation.
The total weighing package has since been proven to be successful for the client.
