Mechanical Combination Truck and Railway Scale This design is the first fabricated steel lever railway scale approved by the A.R.E.M.A. (American Railway Engineering Maintenance
Association). It’s also the first to adapt “A”-Frame Construction to increase strength and rigidity of high capacity scales.
The cutaway illustration above shows the Cardinal “A”-frame lever construction, a variation of the basic torque lever conformation
required in heavier capacity railway track scales.
Pit Type Electronic - RSCA Series Full Floating Deck A.R.E.M.A. Design.
The massively constructed,
heavy steel weighbridge is
stabilized laterally and longitudinally
with checkrods and
other specially designed restraints.
Weighrails are sealed
into the platform. Special design
techniques and manufacturing
procedures prevent excessive
moisture, dirt and foreign
materials from entering the pit.
Rail Hugger: Low-Profile Railway Scale The Rail Hugger is engineered to give you the most advanced alternative to today's railroad track scales. The low-profile scale adapts to (or will be custom-made for) any combination of car lengths.
Because it is mounted above ground in a shallow, concrete foundation, there is no worry about shifting ballast resulting in weight errors. As a result, maintenance is minimized and precious track time is rarely interrupted. That translates into money saved.
