Concrete Pump Required for Weighbridge install

October 2011 Australasia Scales supplied, installed and trade verified a 28m x 3.5m. Above Ground Weighbridge install at an Atherton Waste Transfer Station.


The 80t x 20kg/50kg dual range fully hot dipped galvanised steel concrete weighbridge was fitted with 8 heavy duty CAS canister type load cells, 2 Rinstrum D740 External Remote Displays for bi-directional use and a Rinstrum R420 indicator fitted with RS485 modules to send weight signal to the remote displays.

Due to the very high average rainfall experienced in the Tablelands Region concrete truck access to all sides of the weighbridge was made impossible as a result of poor surface traction, this meant concrete pumps had to be brought in to complete concrete pouring of the base slab, weighbridge decks, approaches and ramps.

When planning a Weighbridge install during the wet season expect delays during the civil works construction phase, which may more than often result in high standby / delay costs, additional machinery and tools required i.e. concrete pumps, water pumps to extract rain water that may fill excavated Weighbridge area, also additional costs for precautionary measures such as blinding concrete or crush rock placed at bottom of the excavated Weighbridge foundation area to limit mud and debris build up.
