A weighbridge was recently supplied by Accuweigh’s Perth branch for weighing truck loads of contaminated waste at Tox Free’s Kwinana Depot.
AASoftware’s Ticket Aid Pro+ weighbridge software tracks all incoming waste deliveries and is configured to automatically assign charges based on the type of waste disposal or treatment required. A Weighbridge Control Station is used to co-ordinate the RFID tag readers which automatically identify the client’s own vehicles to minimise operator input when generating weighing transactions.
The 20 metre long weighbridge was constructed with a width of 3.5 metres to also allow the site’s large Hyster forklifts carrying shipping containers to be weighed. A concrete deck weighbridge was used for its superior traction capabilities in wet and muddy conditions over comparable steel deck weighbridges on above ground installations.
Another feature of Tox Free’s weighbridge is the external remote displays used to relay the weight readings to the truck drivers also contain the traffic lights used to control access to both incoming and outgoing trucks accessing the weighbridge.
Accuweigh is Australia’s largest industrial weighing company and specialises in the supply and servicing of weighbridges through branches located in all mainland states.
