Wheel Load Scales

When using wheel load scales, including the PT300™, PT300DW™ and LP600™, Intercomp recommends that an axle group, axles within 10 feet (3 meters), be on the same plane. This means all axles in a group, including dual, triple and spread axles, should be at the same level as the axle on the pad, either supported by another scale pad or a solid object.

System Benefits:
  • Portable, Cost-Effective Method to Weigh Vehicles
  • Axle Weights Easily Obtained
  • Accurate Weights on Multiple Surfaces
How To:
  1. Stop Vehicle and place scale pads just ahead of wheels to weigh
  2. Drive up onto pads and stop before driving over pads
  3. Read weights on scale display or RFX™ Wireless Weighing indicator
Wheel Load Scales
Static Wheel Load w/ Levelers
Portable levelers/ramps allow collection of axle weights and Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW) using only two scale pads. The levelers/ramps keep various axle groups on a level plane when crossing the scales.

System Benefits:
  • Levelers/Ramps Allow for More Accurate Weights When
  • Using only Two Scale Pads
  • More Efficient Throughput with Drive-On/
  • Drive-Off Capability
  • Ideal for Mobile Check Weighing Operations
How To:
  1. Place scale pads, one on each side of vehicle, to accommodate vehicle width
  2. Install drive-on and drive-off ramps
  3. Drive vehicle on to scale, stopping on each axle
  4. Collect weight data for each axle & accumulate to determine GVW
Static Wheel Load Scales w levelers
Dynamic Axle Scales
Collects accurate axle weights and computes Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW) while a vehicle remains in motion. Levelers/ramps keep axle group on a level plane when crossing scale pads.

System Benefits:
  • Smaller Footprint than Full-Length Truck Scales
  • Axle, GVW and Side Weights Easily Collected
  • In-Ground and Portable Options Available
  • Saves on Additional Fuel Being Burned by Vehicle Idling While in Line
How To:
  1. Deploy portable pads, levelers and indicator for portable system; or activate in-ground system
  2. Approach scale at required speed and continue over scale system at a constant speed
  3. Axle weights collected in real time as vehicle passes over pads
  4. Access or save automatica
