Weighbridge Extension Caters For B Double Trucks

Accuweigh’s Melbourne branch recently installed a weighbridge back to back with an existing Avery weighbridge for Heytesbury Stockfeeds on Vic’s  Central Coast.

The weighbridge project required a new 18 metre weighbridge to be grafted onto the end of the existing 18 metre Avery weighbridge to cater for B Double trucks and to allow for future feed silos to be built above the new weighbridge deck.

The new above ground weighbridge is fitted with six stainless steel Flintec load cells and was completed in early January to suit the client’s time frame. Three x Rinstrum R420 digital weighing indicators were used to provide the individual weight indication for each weighbridge as well as perform the vital summing duties for the total weight on both weighbridges.

Twin Rinstrum D740 weighbridge remote displays are used to display the weight readings of each weighbridge deck to the truck drivers so they can check they have not exceeded legal weight limits.

Heytesbury Stockfeeds are buyers of Whole Grains and seller of Whole & Rolled Grains and are located on Tomahawk Creek Road, Simpson, VIC 3266.

Accuweigh is Australia’s largest industrial weighing company and has branches in all mainland states providing complete after sales service and support on all types of weighbridges and weighing equipment.
