Industrial scales installed at Adelaide Airport

Supplier: AccuWeigh
13 April, 2011

Industrial scales were recently installed for weighing tractor trailers carrying air freight in South Australia.

Supplied and commissioned by Accuweigh’s Port Adelaide branch, these industrial scales are fully trade approved to ensure high weighing accuracy for all air freight before it is loaded into waiting aircraft.

The industrial scales are used to ensure the total weight of freight doesn’t exceed the aircraft’s rated capacity and also assists with actual load positioning within the aircraft by  identifying excessively heavy trolley loads.

These Australian Made industrial Scales were manufactured to custom measurements to suit the client’s freight tractor and trailer combination units. Measuring four metres long, the industrial scales feature a low profile and are fitted with metal ramps at each end for easy trolley access.

With a weighing capacity of six tonnes, the weighing deck of the industrial scales is supported on six heavy duty industrial load cells with a high overload factor to cope with the knocks and bumps expecting in this application. As well as displaying the weight readings, the digital weight indicator also stores the tare weight of each trolley used in the facility to display only the net weight of cargo on each trailer.

Accuweigh is Australia’s Weighing Experts with our eight branches across all mainland states providing full sales and service support on cargo scales and all types of scales and weighing equipment.
