Accuweigh 's Brisbane North branch recently supplied a new set of animal weighing scales to the Greyhound Racing Club at Capalaba.

The Brisbane Greyhound Weighing Racing Club had recently taken over operation of the Capalaba racetrack and stewards were unhappy with the condition of the existing animal weighing scales being used to weigh the dogs prior to each race.

It was decided that these aging animal weighing scales would be replaced with modern equipment identical to that used at Brisbane’s Albion Park and Ipswich's greyhound tracks. The previous set of animal weighing scales used a mechanical scale base fitted with an electro-conversion kit, which was nearing the end of its working life and could not be certified for trade use.

The new animal weighing scales are fully digital, and comprised of an A&D HW load cell base mated to a Rinstrum R323 digital weight indicator. The existing cage was fitted to the new animal weighing system, which were then programmed, calibrated and certified for trade use as per the club’s requirement.

Accuweigh will be servicing the new animal weighing scales on a regular basis to ensure accurate weights are maintained and reported on.
