Industrial scales from Accuweigh improves grain loading efficiency

The QWM branch of Accuweigh in Brisbane recently supplied industrial scales in kit form to a large grain handling company on Queensland’s Darling Downs. The industrial scales are mounted on a truck chassis for weighing shipping containers after they have been filled with grain.

The shipping containers are filled from storage silo’s in a remote area of the farm and previously needed to be taken many kilometres to a public weighbridge for attaining the legal shipping and invoicing weights. If the container was under or over weight, it was then returned to the loading point for weight adjustment, which proved very time consuming for the client.

The industrial scales mounted on the truck allows the client to adjust the volume of grain in the container at the loading point before it is taken to the weighbridge for official weighing prior to shipping.

The load cells of the industrial scales are mounted on the truck chassis/sub-frame and the shipping container is locked onto the loadcells by the twistlock assemblies attached to the load cell mounting brackets to provide an accurate and durable mobile weighing system.
