Cardinal Scale’s LPRA low-profile railroad track scales feature heavy-duty rugged steel weighbridges, stainless steel electronic or hydraulic load cells (hydraulic load cells are impervious to lightning and water damage), 20 different models available, up to 270-ton gross capacities, E-80 Cooper AREMA rating, and accuracy class IIIL legal for trade (NTEP and Measurement Canada). The UV-protected, anti-corrosion tan powder paint compliments any environment and all weighbridges are shot-blasted and power-washed clean of debris before painting for optimum quality. The low-profile design eliminates the expense and maintenance of a pit meaning construction costs are lower.
RSCA Pit Type Rail Scale
Cardinal Scale’s RSCA series truck and track scales feature a rugged, accurate, and heavy-duty weighbridge system for static weighing operations. The RSCA is a pit-type rail/truck combo scale that is perfect for weighing a variety of rail car sizes and full semi-tractor trailers. The massively-constructed, NTEP legal-for-trade steel weighbridge of Cardinal’s RSCA scale is stabilized laterally with checkrods and other specially designed restraints. Weighrails are sealed into the platform. Choose from electronic or Guardian hydraulic load cells with 270 ton (245 metric ton) gross capacity and 180 ton (163 metric ton) sectional capacity. Special design techniques and manufacturing procedures prevent excessive dirt, moisture, and foreign material from entering the pit, providing this rugged scale accuracy and exceptionally long life. Standard platform lengths available from 60 ft to 100 ft long.
For weight verification and other non-NTEP needs, the RailBoss rail scale is a cost-effective and easy-to-install method for weighing stationary railroad cars. Powered by Rice Lake's 920i® and RailBoss software, RailBoss can be purchased as an eight-section full-draft system, or a simpler four-section double-draft model.
RailBoss utilizes MS quick-disconnect cable connectors to reduce unexpected maintenance and repairs. The enhanced cable connectors automatically release before reaching damaging tension, saving valuable repair time and replacement costs.
Many scrap yards, agricultural operations and plants that could not justify the space, installation time and cost of a conventional rail scale can afford to install our RailBoss rail scale. It usually takes less than eight hours to install and is less than one-third the cost.
