BMS Heavy Duty Spec
The BridgeMont Heavy Duty Steel Deck Truck Scale is an outstanding design that incorporates the most advanced engineering and production technology. It is a scale for the majority of users, the people who require a scale they can depend on, day in and day out. With 100% welding throughout the structure, the BMS-HD offers best-in-class strength and durability.
Gross Capacity: With a capacity of 40 to 135 tons this scale can handle a wide range of trucks and configurations.
Platform Lengths: Platform lengths from 10′ to 150′; assuring each customer the right size for the application.
Platform Widths:Standard widths of 10′, 11′, 12′ and all the way up to 15′ to fit a range of applications and existing foundations
Concentrated Load Capacity (CLC):At 45 tons, the BridgeMont Heavy Duty Concrete Deck Truck Scale is comparable to other product costing thousands more.
Dual Tandem Axle Rating (DTA):At 90,000 lb, the BridgeMont Heavy Duty Concrete Deck Truck Scale provides the highest Dual Tandem Axle Rating in its class.
“r” Factor:With an “r” Factor of 2.65, the BridgeMont is twice the legal highway load limit of 34,000 lb.
Module Size:At 10′, 12′, 20′, 23.5′, and 25′; the BridgeMont uses fewer load sensors, only 8 on a typical 70′ scale, compared to 10 or more on competitive models.
Weighbridge Thickness:At 10.125″ thick, the BridgeMont Heavy Duty Concrete Deck Truck Scale provides a lower profile, compact and structurally superior design.
Elevation Profile:At 14″, the compact, efficient design of the BridgeMont minimizes approach and exit requirements, and provides the user total confidence in integrity of the weighbridge.
Full Electronic Design:Avery Weigh-Tronix has been an unsurpassed leader in utilizing state of the art technology in virtually every aspect of their truck scales.
Factory Assembled:Minimizes installation time and costs. Insures consistent product quality. No rebar or sheeting required.
Weighbridge Design:An outstanding weighbridge design, that includes a 5″ field poured concrete deck, on top of a robust steel deck substructure. This superior design
places the concrete in a compression application, above the neutral axis, and the steel components in a tension and compression application. This
design has more steel content than most competitive models.
Corrosion Protection:All steel surfaces are sandblasted too SSPC-6 industry standards. A high quality industrial grade urethane primer is applied, followed by a final coat
of an acrylic polyurethane.
Module Installation:The absence of grout plates and the drilled in place anchor bolts mean simple, low cost installation
Weigh Bars®:Capacity of 75,000 lb for each sensor, with 200% overload safety factor.
Weigh Bar Performance:Impervious to end, side, and torque loading conditions that can destroy conventional load cells.
Weigh Bar Design:Produced from high quality aircraft ally steel bar stock, that has been heat treated, quenched and tempered to resist corrosion. Better repeatability
and less hysteresis than stainless steel.
Weigh Bar Reliability:Failure rate of only 0.31% compared with a national average of 3 to 5% on conventional load cells.
Weigh Bar Protection:Extremely resistant to surge voltage or lightning related problems. Strain gauges are scientifically sealed against moisture or corrosive elements.
Weigh Bar Cabling:Stainless steel jacketed cables in factory installed conduit runs.
Weigh Bar Self-Checking:Rugged Easi-Post™ suspension with self-checking design absorbs shocks and vibration from sudden starting and stopping of vehicles on scale.
All components are made with hardened, stainless steel material for outstanding strength, durability, and corrosion protection. No check rods or bumper plates required.
NEMA 4 Stainless Steel Junction Box:Compact, all stainless steel junction and summation boxes, with connector less cables for elimination of moisture or condensation related problems. Includes Gore breather vent to equalize pressure inside and outside the box.
