Even the best technology needs maintenance sometimes, and when they do the VTC251 is designed to minimize downtime. Renforced cover plates are located directly above each POWERCELL load cells to allow easy access to your load cells from the top of the scale. This design simplifies and streamlines inspections and maintenance process.
Another brand new set of inbound/outbound VTC251 vehicle scales are in the ground! Utilizing Mettler Toledo’s GDD analog loadcells, and rugged concrete design, these scales are here to stay. The VTC251 concrete-deck truck scale is an exceptionally durable weighbridge that delivers years of reliable service. It features a 10-inch-thick concrete driving surface reinforced by a robust steel understructure. This true composite design effectively combines the superior compressive strength of concrete with the high tensile strength of steel.
Key Features of the VTC251:
The VTC251 truck scale’s modular design is ready to accommodate all of your future requirements. The intuitive modules connection system makes it easy to extend the length of a scale or reconfigure it for multiple-axle weighing. This flexible design also makes the VTC251 an ideal replacment truck scale for existing foundations.
Mettler Toloedo’s life-cycle test program verifies a scale’s ability to survive the real-world demands of vehicle weighing. The VTC251 scale modules was tested for two million cycles each with a minimum live load of 80,000 lbs. This simulation equivilant to over 20 years of real vehicle traffic and scale wear. No other manufacturer even comes close to a comparable test.
The VTC251 puts the strongest structural components exactly where the greatest strength is needed, directly under the tire path. For additional strength, increased durability, and to provide additional shear transfer protection to the weighbridge, Mettler Toledo’s unique system of angled ribs is positioned between the strength guides. This unique arrangement adds more strength than competitors’ designs that simply use I-beams as a form for the concrete deck.
Mettler Toledo is so confident in their product they back the POWERCELL PDX load cells, with an unprecedented 10-Year Warranty. Compare Mettler Toledo’s protection to warranties offered by other manufacturers. Mettler Toledo’s guarantee helps customers control maintenance spending by covering more items for more time.
If time is money, the VTC251 has your back. In the past, many of our other weighbridges required up to 28 days to completely cure. The revolutionary High-Strenght concrete cures in as little as 7 days. This means the VTC251 truck scale is ready to use up to 20 days faster than other scales.
