SURVIVOR® OTR Axle Truck Scale

SURVIVOR® OTR Axle Truck Scale

PROVEN SURVIVOR STRENGTH FOR AXLE WEIGHING APPLICATIONS


Rice Lake’s reputable SURVIVOR OTR Axle truck scale is designed for in-ground, shallow-pit truck axle weighing for applications where above ground ramps aren’t practical. Built tough with a wide-flange I-beam construction, the SURVIVOR OTR Axle scale withstands steady truck traffic and harsh weather conditions with minimized deflection (vertical flexing), which is a major factor increasing the life of the weighbridge.


SPACE SAVING SOLUTION TO ENSURE ON-ROAD SAFETY


The SURVIVOR OTR Axle scale is built in a shallow pit to keep the scale deck flush with existing truck traffic. The pit design means there is no need to build ramps, allowing minimal disruption to the current traffic flow and a small scale footprint. The SURVIVOR OTR Axle truck scale is ideal for warehouses, distribution centers, e-fulfillment centers, transfer stations and any LTL business that needs to checkweigh trucks leaving the premises

SURVIVOR® OTR Concrete Deck Truck Scale

SURVIVOR® OTR Concrete Deck Truck Scale

The OTR Concrete Deck is well suited for resisting corrosion and rust, and generally requires less maintenance than steel decks, helping to extend the life of the scale. A concrete surface also yields better traction in wet and icy conditions. Because of their design, concrete decks distribute the load over a wider area than steel decks. Concrete decks are poured at the job site and typically have a cure strength of 4,000 PSI at 28 days. The concrete is reinforced with steel rods and a minimum of two wide-flange main beams and seven wide-flange beams below.


WEIGHBRIDGE DESIGN


Designed and built to federal bridge standards, the full six-inch thick reinforced concrete deck of the OTR encases hundreds of 3/4-inch shear studs welded to the supporting 6-inch I-beams, creating a monolithic 12-inch thick rigid weighbridge. The concrete deck design incorporates galvanized steel sheets working in conjunction with I-beams to ensure that concrete remains above the neutral axis of the weighbridge. Concrete functions best when it remains above the neutral axis in a compression application. Flexing from tension loading can damage any concrete that extends below the neutral axis. The eventual cracks caused by this flexing would lead to deterioration of the deck and eventual scale failure.


LOAD CELLS AND MOUNTING SYSTEM


Each load cell has an individual capacity of 75,000 pounds, compared to only 50,000 pounds in many competitive models. Higher capacity load cells handle heavier loads with far fewer failures. Wire-braided copper transient bypass cables are provided at each load cell mount for individual load cell protection from direct lightning strikes to the scale or weighbridge. Load cells and electronic components have top access through the scale deck, allowing for convenient maintenance, even where space is limited.


DURABLE FINISH


All SURVIVOR scales are thoroughly cleaned before painting to remove mill scale, oils or other surface contaminants. An asphalt undercoating is applied to the interior and underside of the entire scale. A high-performance epoxy primer is applied to all steel before the specialized hard-coat alkyd enamel completes the process.


LIGHTNING PROTECTION


Every SURVIVOR truck scale comes complete with a surge voltage protection system. The junction box is provided with individual transient circuitry protection. The entire system is grounded to a single-point grounding system connected to the power ground. With the introduction of single point grounding, you will not experience the loss of load cells associated with other competitive designs.


EASY EXPANSION


Versatile and cost-effective, the OTR was designed to change with your business. Heavy-duty, self-seating hinge connectors offer easy installation of the pre-assembled modules, and simplify future expansion.

SURVIVOR® OTR Steel Deck Truck Scale

SURVIVOR® OTR Steel Deck Truck Scale

The SURVIVOR OTR Series truck scale is an outstanding design that incorporates the most advanced engineering and production technology to manufacture the highest quality vehicle weighing system in the marketplace. For applications where steel is preferred or downtime is critical, choose the SURVIVOR® OTR Steel Deck. Operational within a day, the easy-to-install SURVIVOR OTR Steel Deck sets the standard for truck scale design and performance, keeping downtime to a minimum. Tightly spaced wide-flange I-beams form the industry's strongest weighbridge design, weighing as many as 250 trucks per day for 25 years without a trace of weighbridge fatigue.


WEIGHBRIDGE DESIGN


The weighbridge on the OTR steel deck model consists of a diamond checkered steel top plate welded on top of twelve 12-inch wide-flange, 14 pound structural I-beams. The wide flange beam construction helps minimize span deflection and lengthens the life of your truck scale. The beams are positioned longitudinally with the traffic flow, a design based on interstate bridge designs intended to last 100 years. With our longitudinal design, each tire is fully supported by the top plate and a wide flange beam below, eliminating the longitudinal ruts associated with competitive designs that utilize structural shapes instead of heavy bridge iron. In addition, a steel deck weighs less, which makes it easier to move or relocate if necessary.


LOAD CELLS AND MOUNTING SYSTEM


Each load cell has an individual capacity of 75,000 pounds, compared to only 50,000 pounds in many competitive models. Higher capacity load cells handle heavier loads with far fewer failures. Wire-braided copper transient bypass cables are provided at each load cell mount for individual load cell protection from direct lightning strikes to the scale or weighbridge. Load cells and electronic components have top access through the scale deck, allowing for convenient maintenance, even where space is limited.


BREATHING ROOM BELOW


The Steel Deck OTR features an open-bottom design. The open-bottom design allows unrestricted airflow, eliminating the cavity where rust-causing moisture can build up.


DURABLE FINISH


All SURVIVOR scales are thoroughly cleaned before painting to remove mill scale, oils or other surface contaminants. An asphalt undercoating is applied to the interior and underside of the entire scale. A high-performance epoxy primer is applied to all steel before the specialized hard-coat alkyd enamel completes the process.


LIGHTNING PROTECTION


Every SURVIVOR truck scale comes complete with a surge voltage protection system. The junction box is provided with individual transient circuitry protection. The entire system is grounded to a single-point grounding system connected to the power ground. With the introduction of single point grounding, you will not experience the loss of load cells associated with other competitive designs.

SURVIVOR® OTR-LP Low-Profile Steel Deck Truck Scale

SURVIVOR® OTR-LP Low-Profile Steel Deck Truck Scale

The OTR-LP was designed as a steel deck replacement scale solution with a low profile and easy installation in pre-existing foundations used for non-Rice Lake truck scales. The OTR-LP features a 5/16- or 3/8-inch diamond plate deck and a rugged I-beam construction. Eight-inch, wide-flange beams minimize deflection and prolong the life of the weighbridge. Widths are available in 10 or 11 feet, and the profile ranges from 11 to 16 inches with a three-to-eight inch cleanout.

SURVIVOR® OTR-XV Extreme Duty Vehicle Scale

SURVIVOR® OTR-XV Extreme Duty Vehicle Scale

ULTIMATE STRENGTH FOR VECHICLES UP TO 400,000 POUNDS


Ideal for ultra-high capacity vehicle weighing applications such as mining, coal, oil fields, forestry and construction materials, Rice Lake’s OTR-XV extreme duty vehicle scales are the toughest in the industry.


Whether you choose concrete or steel deck, both models feature wide-flange I-beam construction to minimize deflection or vertical flexing—a major factor in determining weighbridge lifespan. Many other manufacturers use lighter beams and bent plates in the middle of the bridge, or may space beams farther away from the center of the module to reduce the cost of the scale. Over time, this type of bridge can bow, causing inaccuracies in weighments, scale downtime and eventually scale failure.


The OTR-XV 11-foot-wide steel deck design features 14-inch, wide flange beams on 11.5-inch centers running longitudinally with the traffic flow beneath up to two-inch diamond check steel top plate. The concrete deck option features 14-inch main beams and 8-inch beams under a 6-inch thick slab of concrete.
