Ultrahawke Pty Ltd
A heavy duty Ultrahawke Weighbridge was recently installed at Hanson’s Diggers Rest quarry in Victoria. Special considerations were required to allow this Weighbridge to be certified for trade use due to its position in an area subject to flooding and water/silt run-off.
To conform to Weight’s & Measures requirements for Weighbridge trade approvals, Weighbridges must have a minimum of 150mm clearance under the Weighbridge deck at all times. This requirement is to ensure that the weighing accuracy of the Weighbridge isn’t compromised by a build-up of dirt, silt or rubbish under the Weighbridge deck.
To overcome potential problems with removing material build-up from under the Weighbridge deck at this quarry, Ultrahawke’s Weighbridge foundations included 400mm high plinths on which the Weighbridge load cells are mounted. This Weighbridge deck sits 800mm above ground level with greatly increased under deck clearance to eliminate potential snagging problems.
Ultrahawke’s Weighbridge civils contractor, Christopher Wren Constructions, also made substantial increases to the size of the entry and departure ramps to minimise strain on trucks accessing and departing the Weighbridge. The Weighbridge measures 28 metres long and is 3.5 metres wide for easier truck and trailer access.
The heavy duty Weighbridge’s weighing electronics include 8 x Flintec RC3 Weighbridge load cells fully manufactured in stainless steel and hermetically sealed with an IP68 rating. An A&D 4323 digital weight indicator are used to generate the Weighbridge weight readings.
Ultrahawke is Australia’s largest manufacturer of Weighbridges and heavy duty weighing equipment and recently celebrated 150 years of operation.
