Its is important that your weighbridge is serviced and tested periodically to ensure it is calibrated and operating as required. Weighbridge load cells, pins and mounting cups are subject to wear and tear.
Most weighbridge load cells are based on the rocker pin design, allowing the load cell to freely rock back and forth. Contraction of the weighbridge deck caused by seasonal temperature changes and for inherent weighbridge movements caused by trucks stopping and starting on the weighbridge affects clearance over time and shortens the load cell life expectancy. Ensuring that this "rocking clearance" is correct will be required.
Heavy braking and excessive acceleration of trucks is also a factor which damages the end stop hardware, resulting in increased weighbridge end clearances. End stops also need adjusting to prevent excessive weighbridge end movements.
Finally dust and dirt tends can eventually enter the hardened steel cups fitted to the top and bottom of load cells and the load cell pendles forming a grinding paste when mixed with the grease and quickly render both the cups and load cell inoperable.
Your weighbridge needs to be inspected and service regularly. We have weighbridge service teams in all states. We can carry out service, calibration, maintainance and repairs across all brands of weighbridges.
