Pit Type Weighbridge

Pit Type


Overview

L.A.K Pit Weighbridge provide a complete Level weighing surface with the surrounding Ground level and least surface area of a site than any other weighbridge type.It is more suitable for places with limited space (eg: non-hilly areas) where the construction of pit is not a costly affair. Since the platform is in level with the ground, vehicles can approach the weighbridge from any direction. Most public weighbridges prefer this design.

A convenient,ruggged electronic flush mounting pit weighbridge that fits into congested space for easy maneuver.

 

Features

Weighbridge Structure Modular construction with high stregth reinforced mild steel, the design comprised of two main raised side longitudinal beam members and transverse channel and joist members. Platform plates, which are stressed members of the structure have a patterned slip-resistant chequered plates
Bumper Stops Horizontal restraint, both longitudinal and transverse impact movement are limited by four units of longitudinal and four units of transverse bumper stops and are virtually unaffected by everyday abuse to withstand routing shock and jolts without going out of adjustment and only vertical forces are measured by the weighing system
Free Motion Self alignment free-motion strut type movating kits made of special alloy steel are used to minimise wear and tear on the load cells. The construction of the mounting kit provide for a pivoting point of contact at the spherical top of the load cell and ensure that the forces are applied centrically into the top of the load cell
Strength Strength is based on loads quoted uniformly distributed
Environment Resistant to dirt and moisture consistent with conditions pertaining to well drained out door installation
Junction Box Heavy gauged metal and moisture with full IP65 environment protection enclosure complete with multi-cored shield cable standard at 10M length
Indicatord/Printers The indicators supply by us are designed to withstand heat, cold, dut, humidity and all electrical noise demanded by harsh industrial environment for dependable performance with superb accuracy and reliability over long periods
Load Cells The load cells supply by us are manufactured with the strictest care to ensure consistently accurate weighing and withstand shocks and overloading. Large shear beam load cell with mounting attachments included for easy installation. The design is easy to maintain and economical because of few moving or rubbing parts

 

 

Benefits

  • Lesser Space Required (As it has no ramps)
  • Rickshaws & Tractor Trolleys can also be weighed as platform is in flush with ground Level
  • No Ramp  require for truck movement because it is installed in land surface level
  • Costly foundation

 

 

Type Of Scale And Pit Type

TYPE OF SCALE

PIT TYPE

Cost More expensive due to additional construction work required
Service & Scale Repairs In some cases, more costly due to confined area restrictions
Clean Out Done manually and every time consuming
Scale Ispection Must be performed from inside the Pit
Restrictions Or Hazaeds Some states require specified clearances underneath scale. Must also deal with OSHA and confined space hazards requlations
Approaches 10' Flat and level
Platform Size 6m × 3m up to 26m × 3m or 4m wide 
Electricity Needed Must have electricity for pit lights and sump pump if no gravity drain is present
