Weighbridge Services

The load cell tilt is regulated by the total weighbridge movement, which is only set by adjustable physical stops usually fitted to the ends of the weighbridge. These end stops need regular adjustment due to seasonal temperature variations that can significantly affect end stop clearances. Weighbridges expand in length during the hotter months and the end stop clearances are increased to prevent weighing errors. Conversely during the cooler months as the weighbridge shrinks, the end stops need adjusting to prevent excessive weighbridge end movements. End stops need to be adjusted correctly to avoid a shortening of load cell life expectancy.

 

Heavy braking and excessive acceleration of trucks can damage the end stop hardware, resulting in increased weighbridge end clearances. The hardened steel cups fitted to the top and bottom of load cells and the load cell pendles need to be inspected regularly for damaged caused by excessive loadings and excessive weighbridge movement. The entry of dust and dirt into the cups can form a grinding paste when mixed with the grease and quickly render both the cups and the load cell inoperable.

To service your existing weighbridge

 

* Perform an end middle end test to ensure the corners are still in specification.

* All load cell parts will be inspected and be greased where necessary (e.g. ball

   and cup & strut buttons.)

* Checking of load cell cable and ground cables are secure.

* Cleaning all load receptors.

* Ensuring all gaps and stop clearances are according to specification as by

   metrology Regulations.

* Inspection of base plates. tufnols and surrounding structures of weighbridge.

* Checking of deck plates, ensuring all nuts and bolts are in tight position.

* Ensuring that the movement of the loading base is correct.

* Test voltage reading to indicator if correct.

* Inspect all transoms for possible movement and all bolts need to be torque

   with service.

* Ensuring that your weighbridge is kept in a legal status as required by the

   legal legislation.

Weighbridge calibrations and verifications

SANAS – The South African National Accreditation System is recognized by the South African Government as the National Accreditation Body that gives formal recognition that Laboratories, Certification Bodies, Inspection Bodies, Proficiency Testing Scheme Providers and Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) test facilities are competent to carry out specific tasks.

SANAS certificates are a formal recognition that an organisation is competent to perform specific tasks and able to issue such certificates.

SANAS is responsible for the certification and validity for Verification of Mass Measuring Instruments in terms of the Trade Metrology Act, 1973 (Act) 77 of 1973.

Benefits of calibrating your weighbridge

 

* Confirm and certify weighing performance

* Maintain documented evidence of accuracy

* Avoid non-compliance in quality audits

* Control costs and budget predictability

* Reduce product give-away and/or over-charges

Introduction of our weighbridges

 

Weighbridges are expected to operate in the harshest of environments, fully open to the elements. Therefore, a well-structured finishing procedure is essential to provide optimum longevity. In a typical coating process, all steel is shot-blasted to remove mill scale and surface imperfections prior to painting. This ensures maximum adhesion of the surface coating applications. In parallel sound design principles ensure a well-drained deck and no hidden traps underneath where hidden corrosion can occur.

FEATURES

 

* DESIGNED TO TAKE 80 TONS

* WEIGHBRIDGE COMES WITH GUIDE RAILS

* THE BRIDGE COMES ONLY IN A STEEL VERSION WITH 8MM

   CHECKER PLATE FOR THE TOP PLATE

* THE INDICATORS ARE FORM SOUTH-AFRICA

* APPROVED FOR TRADE AND IN TERMS OF THE TRAFFIC

   REGULATIONS. THIS MAKES THE READINGS FROM THIS

   SCALE PERMISSIBLE EVIDENCE IN THE CASE OF ANY

   DISPUTES WITH THE TRAFFIC AUTHORITIES OR WITH

   CUSTOMERS AND SUPPLIERS

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

 

* The weighbridge decks are manufactured from 8 pieces of 6mm U-shaped

   beams with 10mm thick reinforced plates inside the U-shaped beams for

   additional strength. The deck plate is then welded to the U-beam to

   complete a modular section offering exceptional strength and durability.

   NO DECK BOLTS.

* The weighbridge deck consists of four interlock decks, with a capacity of

   80tons.

* The platform/deck configuration will be: same as existing weighbridge to

   fit on existing concrete plinth.

* The deck plate shall be manufactured from 8mm checker plate (vastrap).

* All cables run through conduit to the point of load cell/junction boxes.

* Each deck is joined together by Weigh-Bar Sections using high tensile

   steel-machined bolts. These are at 90° to the modules. The Weigh-Bars

   have 20mm stiffening plates inside to give optimal strength.

* Removable section covers over the weigh-bars allow convenient access to

   the load cells for maintenance and service.
