Multi Platform Axle Scales
- DetailsTHERE’S MORE THAN ONE WAY TO GET AN AXLE WEIGHT
Use a single module axle scale and weigh one axle at a time. The gross and net weights won’t be legal for trade, but you will have a clear indication of axle weights. Use a normal truck scale: Pull the steering axle onto the scale. The scale operator records the weight and then hits
the TARE button. Pull the truck forward to position the drive axle on the scale. The scale operator records the drive axle weight reading and then tares it out. Pull the truck forward until the tandem axle is on the scale. Take a final reading. That works great as long as you have plenty of time, plenty of help, and everyone is really patient.AXLE WEIGHING THE LEGAL WAY
A truck scale built for one-stop axle weighing combines multiple independent scales in a common foundation. When the truck pulls onto the scale with an axle positioned on each scale, the system instantly provides axle weights plus a certified gross weight in a single weighment. The process that could be a five minute ordeal of weighing one axle at a time can become a ten second process. Avery Weigh-Tronix provides a wide selection of truck scale products designed to maximize efficiency of vehicle weighing. Now you can quickly and reliably generate not only legal-for-trade gross, tare, and net weights, but also accurate steering, drive and tandem axle weights on every vehicle.
Avery Weigh-Tronix multi-platform scales can use any number and combination of 10′, 12′, 20′ , 23.5′ or 25′ standard length modules. Other sizes are available upon special request. Each section functions as an independent scale to provide accurate axle weights
- BRIDGEMONT OR STEELBRIDGE XTMatching the right scale to the job is an important decision. Avery Weigh-Tronix offers the range of choices necessary to fit the scale to the task. For normal traffic the BridgeMont scale may be the right selection. The BridgeMont design has successfully removed significant cost and installation time from both the steel or concrete version. The SteelBridge XT is the right choice for heavy traffic and axle loads.. The XT is for eXTra: extra steel, extra long life and extra warranty. Its steel version features a 100% sealed weld, sandwich steel deck. Its concrete version positions all concrete for compression loading only. The concrete will not flex or bend which would result in cracks and early damage. Both models feature a 90,000-lb tandem axle rating and 2.65 “r” factor.
The flexibility of 10, 12, 20, and 24-foot modules from Avery Weigh-Tronix makes it simple to match a scale system to multiple axle configurations.
