Balmoral Technologies coal truck loading/unloading system has been installed in New South Wales to manage and audit the tonnage of coal handled by several power stations. The coal truck loading/unloading system could equally apply to other bulk materials such as grains handling, flour and cement.
The advantages of the coal truck loading/unloading system include its low cost of implementation, accurate record keeping and easy installation and maintenance. To measure exact quantities of coal coming into a power station the power station personnel should know the following:
The identity of a truck, given by a Telsor RFID tag mounted on the truck. This can give normal tare weights, registration number of the truck and therefore identity of the owner of the vehicle.
The power station personnel should know how to measure and record the weight of the truck on entry and exit to and departure from the power station. The power station personnel should also know how to display and control the movement of the trucks on the site of the power station.
