National Weighing & Instruments has carried out the supply and installation of a new 18 meter Bilanciai SPT-28 Transportable Trade Approved Weighbridge for a grain farmer in Western Australia.
The customer required an 18-meter weighbridge to weigh their trucks full of grain to make sure they were not overloading them. The trade approved weighbridge also allows them to carry extra grain as part of the concessional loading scheme.
The Bilanciai SPT-28 Transportable Weighbridge was chosen because of its unique and patented design which allows for easy installation in remote areas but also drastically reduces the costs associated with the civil foundations of a standard weighbridge due to its portable nature.
The customer was not sure if the weighbridge would need to be relocated in a couple of years and due to the SPT-28’s portability and minimal civil foundations required compared to a standard weighbridge, the SPT-28 was the logical choice.
The remote location of the site meant 240V power was not an option so the weighbridge was connected up to a Bilanciai D410 Weight Indicator operating off a 12V deep cycle battery and solar power system.
National Weighing & Instruments supply, service and install a range of different weighbridges from the Bilanciai SPT-28 Transportable type as described above to your standard Bilanciai above ground or inground steel and concrete weighbridges.
