Surface Mounted Weighbridge
Whether you choose a surface or pit-mounted weighbridge will depend on a number of factors specific to your application. The good news is, Parkerfarm has a range of weighbridges suitable for both options and we can help you select the best solution.
Surface-mounted weighbridges have the advantage, that they do not need a dedicated concrete pit with drainage. As long as you have a structurally sound, flat concrete base with access, then a surface weighbridge can be installed. Access to the weighbridge is typically achieved via ramps – these can be steel or concrete. Concrete ramps are cast in situ and require steel end frames within the concrete for strength. (It should be remembered that all weighbridges need a small controlled amount of movement, end to end).
Surface – Pit Crossover
Depending on the location of where your weighbridge is to be installed, (with some imaginative civil works), it is possible to install a surface weighbridge where the concrete approach ramps are level. This design speeds up weighing and leaves the sides of the weighbridge open.
Hiring a surface weighbridge from us offers a number of advantages and doesn’t tie up your capital.
We offer hire periods to suit your requirements and our weighbridge hire packages include full installations, as well as weights and measures stamping if required. Both permanent and portable options are available, together with a range of weight indicators and instrumentation.
All you need is a level, load-bearing base and we are happy to discuss the requirements for this. The modular design of our weighbridges together with the robust steel approach ramps, facilitate installation.
