General Introduction :
This type of weighbridge / Truck scale is most suitable where the excavation work for foundation is difficult or construction of pit is expensive. Since the structure is above ground level, vehicles can approach the weighbridge only from two directions where the ramps are provided. This type of weighbridge requires more space.
In pitless weighbridge RCC ramp work must be required at least 3 meters for both sides for easy movement of vehicle.
- Costly Pit construction is eliminated.
- Platform above ground level- No water logging during rainy season
- Problem of pit maintenance is eliminated.
- Easy maintenance since all parts accessible above ground level.
TYPE OF SCALE PITLESS TYPE Cost Less expensive due to less construction work Service & Scale Repairs Less difficult or costly and serviced from above Clean Out Quick and easy, done with a water hose or compressor from the side Scale Ispection Can be performed by simply walking around the perimeter or the scale Restrictions Or Hazaeds Some states require specified clearances underneath scale Approaches 10’ Flat and level Ramps Typically 25’ long on each end of the ramp. Requires more real estate to install and operate Electricity Needed None
