Avery Weigh-Tronix portable scales go anywhere there is an immediate need for on-site truck weighing — mining and timber operations, road construction, asphalt facilities, quarries or construction sites. They can also quickly fill the gap when other scales fail.
Focus on productivity with same-day setup and operation
Avery Weigh-Tronix Portable Truck Scales can be installed in just 2–4 hours on any stable surface, including: bridge planks, concrete piers or blocks, a concrete slab or swamp pad. The self-contained modular sections eliminate costly site preparation. Each section incorporates built-in Weigh Bar® weight sensors, robust sub-frame with large pier assemblies, and dedicated conduit runs for fast setup and tear down.
Durability for the long haul
Nowhere is structural integrity more critical than in a portable truck scale. The ability to provide accurate measurement under extreme environmental conditions, frequent moves and heavy loading requires exceptional strength and engineering. Avery Weigh-Tronix Portable scales meet the challenge with sandwich steel construction: a checkered steel deck, supported by full-length structural steel members and stabilized with a complete bottom plate. 100% continuous welding throughout the structure seals it against moisture and premature corrosion.
Proven Weigh Bar® reliability
In a three-year study on, the Weigh Bar exhibited failure rate of just 0.3% – compared with a national industry average of 3 to 5% for load cells. To add to the overall reliability, all Weigh Bar cable is sheathed in stainless steel and internally routed through steel conduit for superior protection against moisture, wear and rodents.
When a temporary need turns into a long-term application, there’s no need to purchase a new scale. All models of the BMS-P can be readily converted to permanent, low-profile truck scales.
