Optimise your silo operations with silo scales

2017-07-30T14:57:49+00:00 30th July 2017|

To the layman, the notion of weighing a silo sounds absurd.  How could it be possible to weigh something as huge and heavy as a silo? To those in the know, weighing the contents of silos and tanks is a perfectly normal practice – and for many enterprises and business, it’s an integral part of their everyday operations. There are many different types of silo scales and monitoring equipment on the market but as is the case with any type of calibration or product inspection equipment, it… Read More

How often should scales be calibrated?

2017-07-26T14:56:21+00:00 26th July 2017|

Weighing scales play an important part in many different industrial processes, but over time these precision instruments can become less accurate and less reliable. A number of things can affect the performance of weighing scales such as their workload, their age, how they are used, whether they’re moved from place to place frequently, temperature variations, power surges, dust, humidity and other environmental factors. Measurement is useless without correct calibrated weighing instruments and… Read More

Are You Meeting The EPA Requirements For A Wheel Wash System?

2017-07-22T14:54:23+00:00 22nd July 2017|

Each state in Australia has its own independent Environmental Protection Authority (EPA), but they all have a common objective.  Each one aims to be an effective environmental regulator and an influential authority on environmental impacts. Their mission is to protect, restore and enhance their respective environments. And so when it comes to making sure that pollutants from sites such as building and construction sites don’t find their way onto public roads or waterways, each EPA has strict… Read More

Why You Should Service Your Weighbridge Regularly

2017-07-18T14:53:16+00:00 18th July 2017|

A weighbridge is a capital investment, and like any other asset, it needs to be well looked after if it is to deliver optimum returns. It is also a precision measuring instrument and for it to perform its function accurately, reliably and consistently, it needs to be in peak condition.  But none of this happens by chance – and it certainly isn’t possible without proper maintenance and regular servicing. Surprisingly, not all weighbridge owners are aware of the importance of preventative… Read More

Why Pallet Scales Are Essential In Warehousing

2017-07-14T14:53:09+00:00 14th July 2017|

For any warehousing or logistics operation to run efficiently, safely and cost-effectively, it has to be underpinned by a reliable and accurate system of data collection. Pallet scales (also referred to as floor scales) are an indispensable asset in the warehousing, transport and logistics industries because they eliminate any guesswork or margin for error when it comes to weight calculations and verifications of incoming or outgoing cargo. However, making the right choice of weighing equipment… Read More

Which Weighing System Do I Need When It Comes To Farming?

2017-07-10T14:50:25+00:00 10th July 2017|

Digital technology is becoming increasingly important in the agricultural industry and many farmers have recognised the very valuable role that it plays in helping them to better manage their operations. One area where technology has been a true business enabler for farmers is in the field of weighing systems such as weighbridges, weighing scales and product inspection equipment, which despite their often rugged and remote locations, consistently produce accurate and precise measurements thanks… Read More

The advantages of a driver control station

2017-07-06T14:43:11+00:00 6th July 2017|

Weighbridges play a vital role in a variety of industries from agriculture to mining, logistics to waste management and many businesses would simply not be able to function without this measurement and data collection equipment. However, in tough economic environments where many organisations feel real bottom-line pressure, there should always be scope to purchase systems and services that enable them to reduce costs, simplify workflow and improve efficiencies – and that applies to the way… Read More

How to avoid weighbridge breakdowns

2017-07-02T14:39:47+00:00 2nd July 2017|

A weighbridge plays a vital role in many aspects of road transportation and logistics from operational and compliance perspectives, with accuracy being a key consideration at this critical control point. However, given that many weighbridges are employed in demanding environments and harsh conditions, it is imperative that ongoing efforts are put into ensuring that their performance and reliability aren’t compromised and that breakdowns are avoided, or at least minimised. Let’s take a look a… Read More
