Single-axle scales are typically a single scale module, or platform, large enough to accommodate a single set of truck axles. The main reason facilities choose this configuration is cost. These smaller scales cost considerably less than one that run an entire truck length. By separately weighing each set of axles, single-axle scales provide a truck’s estimated total weight of a truck. However, this method is not accurate enough to be used in legal-for-trade applications (this method can be off anywhere from 450kg to over1000 lbs.). These scales are primarily used to check for compliance with maximum roadway limits.
The in-ground axle weighing solution from Mettler Toledo and Premier Scales & Systems enables bi-directional entry for easy and efficient vehicle weighing. The structure includes the unequalled reliability of POWERCELL PDX load cells. With their robust, stainless steel construction, POWERCELL PDX load cells provide 100% protection against the forces that can eat into your profits, including extreme temperatures, lightening strikes, water and floods, rodents, and rust and corrosion.
Premier Scale & Systems, along with our wide range of scale manufacturing partners, provide a wide range of cost-effective Single Axel Solutions.
