A set of Flintec weighbridge load cells were fitted to a grain weighbridge after the original fitting Molen load cells started failing. The Flintec RC3 weighbridge load cells are a modern design of load cells and offered a cost-effective solution than sourcing replacement Molen load cells.
New England Weighing Service (NEWS) completed the repairs to the weighbridge, which is owned by Australian Agricultural Crop Technologies. The weighbridge is used to weigh truckloads of grain entering and leaving the Wee Waa plant and also operates as a public weighbridge.
Ultrahawke Scales and Systems , in Melbourne, supplied the Flintec weighbridge load cells as a part of a weighbridge load cell conversion kit to ensure a quick and easy conversion for their agent, Garry Sheen of N.E.W.S., who is based in Tamworth. Ultrahawke Scales and Systems also supplied the mandatory NMI documentation approving this load cell conversion.
The 20m x 3m weighbridge is fitted with 6x30t Flintec weighbridge load cells for a weighing capacity of 80t in dual range mode. The Flintec RC3 load cells are of full stainless steel construction with an IP68 rating for complete environmental sealing.
