UltraHawke Scales and Systems recently supplied a concrete deck weighbridge for commissioning at POAGS’ Kooragang Island freight terminal in New South Wales.
Supplied by Ultrahawke in Melbourne, the heavy duty concrete deck weighbridge is used for weighing tipper trucks delivering grain to the new receiving facility.
A semi-pit weighbridge foundation was used with access hatches built into the weighing deck itself since the narrow building where the weighbridge was being installed was not wide enough for the legally required 750mm side access to allow for cleaning and servicing needs.
This also necessitated a special dispensation from NMI to replace the usual one metre of level approach/ departure concrete pads with the steel grating fitted to one end of the weighbridge for receiving the grain.
UltraHawke’s 18m long weighbridge uses a heavy duty concrete weighing deck supported on six Flintec weighbridge load cells of 30 tonnes capacity for a certified weighing capacity of 60 tonnes.
A large digit remote display was also fitted to allow drivers to read their vehicle’s weight reading without exiting the cab.
A PC running UltraHawke’s Weighbridge Management Software was supplied to print product vehicle weight tickets using an external printer and for generating comprehensive management reports.
A leading manufacturer of weighbridges and heavy duty weighing equipment in Australia, UltraHawke is based in Campbellfield in Melbourne’s North. UltraHawke also recently opened a branch in South Africa to cater for the increased demand for quality weighbridges in that country.
