Scales and Weighing Equipment for Mining and Quarrying
Accurate weight data is critical for all sectors of the mining and quarrying industries. From exploration right through to waste slag, weight provides information on efficiency, regulatory compliance and revenue.
Scales and weighing systems from Avery Weigh-Tronix are renowned all over the world by the extraction industry for their robustness as well accurate data output during constant use in the most demanding conditions.
Many mines and quarries deal with a high volume of vehicles entering and leaving the site. It is vital that vehicles are weighed and processed fast to keep the site operating efficiently. Unmanned weighbridges and traffic management systems can quickly record a vehicle registration number, its tare weight, driving licence details and operator name and address, as well as how long vehicles are spending on site.
For products transported by rail, our train weighing systems can collect wagon and full train weights statically or while in motion.
Avery Weigh-Tronix’s load cell systems for tanks and hoppers turn any holding vessel into a weighing system with little disruption to operations. Our range of floor scales can also help measure outgoing product for billing accuracy.
Supply is the single biggest issue facing the coal mining industry today, driven by demand from emerging markets. The extraction industry must maximise production from existing mines and quickly develop new ones. Weighing scales and systems from Avery Weigh-Tronix can help monitor efficiency in current operations, as well as record transactions for revenue purposes.
As well as using weighing equipment to monitor production and charge for outgoing loads, the coal mining industry monitors by-products such as waste and coal combustion products (CCPs). CCPs can play an important role in concrete production which is expcted to grow as sustainable construction becomes more prominent.
Our vehicle scales and weighbridges are designed to be tough enough for the harsh conditions found in the coal mining industry. Avery Weigh-Tronix’s train scales allow weighing in motion, ensuring your mine records weight data and keeps on moving. For smaller loads, floor scales and bench scales provide greater degrees of accuracy with the same Avery Weigh-Tronix strength.View applicable products
Metals and other minerals are essential to modern life, with homes, cars, appliances and new technologies all reliant on metal components. Metals are also integral to the basic infrastructure of our society, from transportation systems, utilities and food production, to distribution. As a result, metal mining is in high demand.
Throughout the metal mining process, from prospecting and analysis of potential of a proposed site, right through to extraction, processing and managing waste, weight data provides vital information on efficiency, regulatory compliance and revenue.

For products transported by rail, our train weighing systems can collect wagon and full train weights statically or while in motion. Floor and bench scales provide a highly accurate solution for measuring the weight of precious metals.View applicable products
For every sector of the aggregates industry, increasing transportation costs and uncertain demand are forcing the industry to be more efficient than ever. Weighbridges and weighing systems from Avery Weigh-Tronix can help companies to ensure they cover costs, maintain vehicle safety and operate efficiently.
Whether the goal is to process vehicles entering and leaving site quickly and efficiently, measure incoming and outgong loads for billing purposes, or measure produce and waste for reporting purposes, weighing equipment capable of reliable and repeatable weighing is essential to the overall bottom line in stone mining and quarrying applications.
Our weighbridges are reliable, accurate and tough enough to stand up to harsh quarry conditions. When paired with sophisticated software or weight indicators, they form a weighing system for record keeping, transactional billing and data transmission and analysis.
Avery Weigh-Tronix’s train scales can weigh wagons and trains in-motion, keeping your operation as efficient as possible. Our rail systems also monitor and prevent imbalance or overloading to avoid accidents or costly penalties.View applicable products
