Concrete deck weighbridge
Our weighing systems utilize up to 35% more steel content as compared to competitor truck scales. They provide the deck with support and overall weighbridges strength to last a generation or more.
The following are benefits of using our weighbridges:
1. Long-lasting value
Papyrus weighbridges are designed to accommodate a minimum of 250 trucks per per day for 25 years without weighbridge fatigue – equivalent to more than two million weighments.
2. Tough from start to finish
Papyrus weighbridges go through an extensive finishing process: blast-cleaning to remove mill scale and surface imperfections, maximum coating adhesion preparation, high-solids urethane primer and paint application, and as asphalt emulsion under coating on all non-visible steel surfaces.
3. A solid foundation
Matching the correct foundation to specific soil conditions is critical to scale performance. Factory specialists and authorized distributors will assist in specifying the proper type for each application site.
4. Breathing room below
Open-bottom design, eliminating the cavity where rust-causing moisture can collect. Asphalt emulsion coating is applied to all non-visible steel surfaces and undersides, adding extra protection from moisture and corrosive elements to prolong the life of the scale.
5. Advanced design
Design engineers use the most advanced Finite Elements Analysis (FEA) software to examine high-stress areas and design weighbridges based on actual loading characteristics. Custom sizes are a standard procedure and can be manufactured to easily fit existing foundations.
6. Self-checking Mounting System
We use the most advanced Finite Analysis (FEA) software to examine high-stress areas and design weighbridges based on actual loading characteristics.
7. Integrated Load Cell Pockets
Top access to load cells and junction boxes through an integrated load cell pockets are made with heavy-duty steel plates incorporated into the design of the scale, adding extraordinary strength and integrity to a critical area of the weighbridge.
