This is the design that really succeeded the mechanical pit lever scale. The original side rail design has been perfected through the years into what has been scientifically proven to be the most durable truck scale we can find (one of our earlier, less durable, designs has seen over 4 million trucks come across it, often seeing 1500-1600 loads per day). Another customer has been seeing 3,000 loads in a day come across their scale.
A number of features make this NTEP approved scale attractive to companies that buy and sell by weight. The low profile of 12″ from the deck to the top of the pier minimizes ramping. The pier design of the foundation minimizes concrete work. The integrated side rails keep trucks on the scale, and don’t give if they are hit. The external load cell mounting system absorbs all reasonable shock load (those drivers that come flying onto the scale at 30 MPH and slam on their brakes won’t hurt the scale) and is efficient to service. The bumper bolt system keeps scale movement to a minimum.
Unitec Low Profile scales feature an external load cell mounting system that absorbs more impact than any other design. Designed for non-proprietary, industry standard load cells and electronic components, this scale is the easiest design in the industry to maintain.
Other features include:
- Integrated side rails (preferred by drivers) prevent driving off scale, damaging equipment
- Bumper bolt system absorbs scale movement, and is easy to maintain
- 12″ profile from top of deck to pier surface
- Designed for 8″ concrete deck
