When filling or performing transloading operations, proper weight distribution is vital. Improperly loaded trucks or intermodal shipping containers pose a safety hazard to employees and the general public. Unmonitored loading of trucks could potentially eat into revenues in the form of citations for non-compliant weight, excess stress on equipment and underutilized loading capacity. Monitoring of weight during the loading process can reduce, or eliminate, the need to return to the loading area to make adjustments.

Filling a trailer with bulk items, like scrap metal, also requires continuous monitoring. Once the weight of a trailer and its contents hit a pre-determined value, that particular trailer is ready to be hauled away. In this example, continuous weight monitoring not only maximizes the waste disposal process due to fewer disposal runs, but can simultaneously confirm axle weight and gross vehicle weight (GVW) compliance. 
Portable Static Scales

Weigh a variety of vehicles in many environments:
  • Easily transported and stored
  • Weigh light-duty vehicles to heavy-duty trucks and equipment
  • Select models can be used on unimproved surfaces
  • Determine vehicle weight distribution left/right & front/back
  • NTEP (National Type Evaluation Program) Class IIII-certified part numbers available
  • RFX Wireless Weighing allows use with remote indicator or PC with IntercompWeigh software
  • Accuracy ±1%
  • Solar recharging where applicable
  • Backlit LCD indicators with totalizing capability
Portable static scales are used in transload and filling applications because of the ability to calculate weight distribution by using individual wheel weights. The trailer being loaded rests on the scale pads until a particular weight is reached. Then, the trailer can be picked up and the contents dealt with.

Common applications include scrap metal collection, collection and disposal of manufacturing waste and the loading docks of semi-trailers at freight terminals.

Semi-Portable Axle Scales

Higher throughput using similarly configured vehicles:
  • Can be installed into pit with proper drainage
  • Integrate into existing scale systems
  • NTEP (National Type Evaluation Program) Class IIII-certified part numbers available
  • Signal outputs include RFX Wireless, digital and analog
  • Highly customizable
  • Weather sealed for prolonged outdoor use
  • Aluminum or steel construction

Axle scales allow for maximum customization to accommodate various vehicles. These semi-portable scales are designed for prolonged deployment in a variety of locations, and the low-profile design of this scale makes it possible to permanently install in a properly-drained scale pit. 

Common applications include scrap metal collection and removal, manufacturing waste disposal and distribution terminal loading docks.
