14 May 6 Benefits of Concrete Pitless Weighbridge
Pitless weighbridges are useful in areas where hazardous gases are present in the atmosphere and places where the soil is rocky. Concrete weighbridge generally requires less maintenance than steel decks. They do not need repainting. They do not display surface wear as steel decks often do. Concrete weighbridges last for many years than the steel deck scales. For such reason, many customers who owned the concrete pit style preferred the concrete design of today.
Concrete decks, because of their design, tend to better distribute the load over a wider area of the platform than a steel deck. Because of the concrete deck thickness, the burden of an axle on the scale is more evenly distributed over the whole weighbridge, thus reducing stresses. In addition, in wet weather, the concrete weighbridge gives better traction. You can contact a pitless weighbridge supplier to get one installed.
