Flintec load cells were fitted to GrainCorp’s weighbridge at Wee Waa in Northern NSW to provide it with a new lease of life after the original load cells installed over 20 years ago failed due to corrosion.
The weighbridge load cells were fitted by Ultrahawke Scales and Systems ’ local agent, New England Weighing Service based in Tamworth. Flintec’s RC3 load cells are stainless steel and their compact dimensions enable them to replace the previous load cells without changing the working height of the weighbridge deck.
Ultrahawke supplied N.E.W.S. with a full retro-fit load cell conversion kit that included new load cell mounting hardware to eliminate the need for any metalwork modifications to be done on site during the load cell change over.
