Shipping & Container Scales

New Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) legislation mandates accurate weighing of shipping containers as they arrive or leave site, as well as verification of the weight of sea containers before they are loaded onto a ship.

The Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) accepts AccuWeigh’s range of our certified weighing systems, which include weighbridges for shipping containers, shipping container scales, pallet weighing scales and bulk weighing systems.

While weighbridges are one the most accurate and convenient ways to weigh shipping containers and their contents when they are onboard a heavy goods vehicle; AccuWeigh’s shipping container scales are designed for attaining accurate weights of loaded shipping containers for freight purposes prior to the shipping container being loaded onto a truck.

AccuWeigh’s shipping container scales feature extra heavy-duty construction to withstand the heavy torsional stresses and impacts, knocks and bumps that can be expected in this demanding industrial weighing application where large forklifts are usually used for moving shipping containers on and off the shipping container weigher.

Furthermore, weighing electronics include 4 heavy-duty loadcells, each with: overload protection, a 30t capacity, an overall working capacity of 40t with full trade approval. All loadcell cabling is run in protective conduit.

AccuWeigh’s Shipping Container Weighers can be optionally fitted with a heavy metal plate positioned across the main support beams to allow other items to be weighed as on a general purpose platform scale.

Optional fittings, such as fork lift bumper stops, are also available for added protection against accidental damage caused by external forces such as reversing trucks, etc.

An important weighbridge accessory, particularly for SOLAS legislation, is weighbridge ticketing systems. These systems are ideal for creating SOLAS certificates and ensuring complete traceability.
