THE WEIGHBRIDGE/SCALE STRUCTURE

FEATURES OF THE WEIGHBRIDGES AND SCALES

Sector suitability

CWCSA weighbridges scales are suitable for many different sectors and no adaptation is necessary.

Accuracy

An accuracy level of 20kg is achieved in terms of the minima set out by the NRCS.

Wiring integrity

All wiring of the weighbridge and scales is fixed in casings inside the platform and conforms to the protection system of IP-67 and IP-68.

Design load

The 22m and 11m weighbridges and scales can accept a mass of up to 100 metric tons and 60 metric tons respectively.

Load cell AND WEIGHT CELL positioning

The shear beam load cells/weigh cells are installed approximately 1.5 meters from the weighbridge/scale ends resulting in protection from deposited mud and water from vehicles.

Load distribution

The robustness and stiffness of the platform results in the loading being evenly distributed over the platform and not concentrated to a specific load cell/weigh cell point, thus enabling CWCSA to offer real time calibration.

Security

The weighbridge/scale sides have a 250mm high edge rail that guides the vehicles and prevents them driving off the weighbridge/scale. At the entrances the rails are designed to prevent cutting of the tyres of the vehicles.

Certification

The system has earned 29 International standard certifications including, ISO9000/9001, OIML, R-60, NIST, RFI, MUTUAL SYSTEM, N.E.T.P, EX PROOF

MOBILITY & ADAPTABILITYimage 2

Mobility

A basic weighbridge/scale installed on a tight bedding can be readily moved from one site to another and all components e.g. weigh cells, load cells, connecting card and platforms are transferable, thus making such relocations highly cost effective.

Modularized

The weighbridge and scales is not manufactured on the site. It is delivered prefabricated and for a basic system is assembled and installed within 14 to 18 hours with 2 entry ramps included.

Relocatable

It typically takes 4 to 8 hours to move a basic weighbridge/scale system within a 30km radius.

Up-time

The system is adaptable and suitable for contractors who have a need to relocate their site within a short period of time to a new location, thus maximizing operation time.
