Portable wheel weighers are weighing platforms that make weighing trucks and their loads extremely easy and efficient. Wheel weighers (also more formally known as truck axle scales or portable truck scales) accommodate a wide range of weighing operations for many industry applications.
Features & Design of Wheel Weighers
Portable wheel weighers have very specific features that enable it to work efficiently. One of the features is that it is a low profile platform. The low height platform enables the user of the machine to place the body being weighed above the wheel weigher easily.
The slim nature of the wheel weighers provide easy movement of a vehicle to move across it without much inclination that may cause the vehicle to tip over. Wheel weighers also come with the removable ramps; the ramps are fitted to the side and enable the vehicle to easily go across to be weighed.
The wheel weighers are built of aluminum, because of its lightness it can be easily carried, but also it provides the toughness needed to cope with the heavy vehicles like a truck. The portable wheelers are also water proof, meaning that they can operate in open areas where it’s raining or humid and will not be affected.
They are also not affected by corrosion caused by rusting. The incorporation of an in-motion weighing scale enables a person to easily weigh a car without necessarily coming to a halt, because the car is being weighed as it moves it hastens the process of weighing.
Advantages of Wheel Weighers
Wheel weighers present a lot of benefit to the user. This portable scale system is an easy to handle equipment that most people can learn to use. The incorporations of the integrated digital indicator into the portable wheel weigher enable the user to get a correct reading efficiently and easily.
As the wheel weighers are easily portable, it enables movement from one point of weighing to another. Most of this portable weighing equipment come with cases that enable transportation easily. Portability also improves safety as it can only be put in the open when it is being used and transported safely elsewhere when not in use. As it is very light with about an average weight of about eighteen kilograms, and thus very minimal effort is used to transport the equipment.
Because different people use different configurations in weighing, wheel weighers have been integrated with flexible or changing weighing configurations. This is beneficial as one can know the particular weight of a truck without necessarily doing calculations.
This unique truck scale system is made in a way to provide seamless weighing of vehicles while they are in motion or they are static. Wheel weighers are also used to compile various weight data of the vehicle, which cam include the axle weight as well as the entire weight of the vehicle.
An integrated weighing terminal can be infused with the wheel weighers and end up providing a very detailed data about the trucks being weighed. The terminal is also portable and is operated by the use of batteries. Wheel weighers mostly use flat surfaces, but there also exist some built for the off-road terrain and weather.
