UltraHawke Scales and Systems recently commissioned the single deck inground weighbridge at the Ringwood depot of CMA Recycling. The concrete deck weighbridge is at ground level and measures 18 metres long with a capacity of 60,000 kg and was installed for weighing in scrap metal deliveries.
The inground weighbridge is mounted in a shallow pit, the weighbridge deck level with the concrete hardstand, to provide easier truck access than an above ground weighbridge. Metal service hatches are positioned adjacent to each weighbridge load cell to provide working access for servicing the weighbridge, as per government regulations.
The inground weighbridge uses 6 Flintec stainless steel weighbridge loadcells and is fitted with a Rinstrum 5000 digital weight indicator. The civil works for the weighbridge and pit installation were completed by Christopher Renn Constructions.
CMA Recycling operates metal recycling on an international scale through recycling facilities throughout Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea and the USA.
UltraHawke manufactures weighbridges and heavy duty platform scales and has operated for over 150 years. UltraHawke have an agent network covering all states.
