AJ Bush & Sons commission three-deck weighbridge from Accuweigh

A weighbridge comprising three individual decks was recently commissioned by Accuweigh’s Brisbane branches for the meat supplier, AJ Bush & Sons in Beaudesert, QLD.

The specific deck lengths of 10m, 8m & 10m allow the multi-deck weighbridge to register individual truck and trailer weight readings of AJ Bush’s proprietary trucks, as well as weighing B Doubles trucks without split weighing.

AJ Bush’s truck/trailer combos simultaneously deliver two main products groups (poultry and meat by-products) over the rendering plant weighbridge for processing. Each product is carried in separate compartments to avoid contamination, one product carried on the truck and the other in the trailer. The multi-deck weighbridge configuration allows individual weight readings of the separate products to be identified during a single weighing transaction.

The concrete deck weighbridge measuring 28m x 3m is mounted in a semi-pit foundation with the weighbridge deck at ground level for easier truck access. All weighbridge metalwork is hot dip galvanised for strong corrosion resistance in the external conditions.

The weighbridge’s weighing electronics include:
•    Three individual weight indicators (one for each weighbridge deck)
•    One summing indicator (to display total weighbridge weight)
•    Four external remote displays (for truck drivers to see vehicle weights)

Ticket Aid Pro Weighbridge Software and a printer were also supplied to generate management reports on all captured weighing details. Bollards were also fitted to the access and departure ramps of the weighbridge to eliminate potential tyre damage caused by trucks accidentally striking the weighbridge beams.
