Four sets of heavy capacity scales were recently commissioned for the new desalination plant at Tugun on the Gold Coast by the Brisbane branch of Accuweigh .

The heavy capacity scales will weigh the sludge by-product of the desalination process as it is being filled into large skip bins.

The heavy capacity scales have a weighing capacity of 30 tonnes, measure 8 metres long by 2.4 metres wide and are fully galvanised. Fitted to the heavy capacity scales, the raised side beams assist with guiding the skip bin into position during loading and unloading from a hook truck. 

The heavy capacity scales weight readings are sent to a PLC to ensure each skip bin is fully loaded before being removed. Controlling the weight of sludge fed into each skip bin also ensures the hook trucks are not overloaded while travelling on public roads.
