THE PROBLEM: RAIL CAR CAPACITY: Running balanced rail cars at or near capacity is essential: Underloaded cars mean lost dollars from underutilization and incorrect billing. Overloaded cars can result in rejection or fines by the servicing railroad — or worse, overloading could cause an accident.
THE SOLUTION: WEIGHLINE RAIL SCALE: The Weighline Rail Scale is designed to ensure proper rail car weights; quickly, safely and affordably. It eliminates uncertainties associated with volumetric control methods and variable tare weights. A New Breed of Track Scale Weighline is a rugged and reliable railroad track scale that consists of a series of 5’10” rail sections specially prepared and instrumented with strain gauges. Each section of rail is designed to be a weighbridge for a single wheel. Most static applications use multiple Weighline sections so that there is a short weighbridge under each wheel of the car being weighed. Weighline is the only rail scale that can provide total car weights plus weight readings for individual trucks, axles and even wheels.
Accurate Weighing: Weighline is not currently certified as legal-for-trade, but provides more than adequate accuracy for check weighing, process monitoring, record keeping and general safety concerns. In the full draft, static weighing arrangement, accuracies of ±0.25% or better are easily obtained. Two draft accuracy is typically ±0.4% or better. A straight, stable track for one car length will produce the best results. Standard Weighline scale capacity is 320,000 lbs (full draft) and 160,000 lbs (two draft).
Quick, Low-Cost Installation: Unlike conventional track scales, Weighline installs in a few hours by replacing sections of existing rail and ties. There is no concrete to pour or pits to excavate as in traditional track scales – the scale is mounted on existing ballast and ties. This results in a surprisingly low installed cost and only one day of track downtime. Weighline sections are welded or bolted into existing track to form a stable weighbridge eliminating the impact associated with conventional scales. Trains not being weighed can move across the scale at normal line speed without damage to the scale. Weighline installs in almost any location that has straight and level track for one car length. Weighline is customarily built on 115 lb/yd rail. It may be connected to other sizes of existing rail by using standard four-hole compromise rail joint bars.
Fits Any Application: Weighline’s inherent versatility makes it a popular choice in virtually any business environment where rail systems are frequently used: recycling/scrap yards, chemical plants, grain elevators, transfer yards, cement plants, hazardous waste facilities, coal mines, sugar processors, refineries, utilities, etc.
Reliability & Craftsmanship: Weighline is built by Avery Weigh-Tronix, well known in the scale industry for remarkably reliable and rugged products. The Weighline rail scale is no exception to this reputation.
