Scales and Weighing Equipment for Asphalt

Weighing scales, weighbridges and systems from Avery Weigh-Tronix can help by measuring incoming raw materials to ensure that asphalt/tarmac plants are paying for and using the correct ingredients.

Asphalt/tarmac mixtures are generally made up of crushed rock, sand, or gravel, bound together by a binder such as bitumen. Load cells can be added to tanks and silos to measure both raw ingredients and finished product, or teamed with sophisticated weight indicators and software to measure and control inventory. Weighing equipment is also vital to measuring, reporting-on and reducing waste.

Many large sites 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.

Whether transporting incoming and outgoing raw materials by road or rail, or monitoring ingredients in tanks and silos, we have a weighing solution to suit your requirements.
