The BridgeMont Standard Duty (BMS-SD) Truck Scale provides an economical solution for those applications with moderate traffic and axle loads up to highway limits. It utilizes the same sandwich steel construction and Weigh Bars as the heavier models for outstanding strength and reliability. Its a reliable system that includes a robust steel deck design with 100% welding throughout the structure and stainless steel suspension components.
Gross Capacity With a capacity of 40 to 135 tons, this scale can handle a wide range of trucks and configurations.
Platform Lengths Platform lengths from 10′ to 120′; assuring each customer the right size for the application.
Platform Widths Standard widths of 10′ and 11′ to fit a range of applications and existing foundations.
Concentrated Load Capacity (CLC) At 35 tons, the BMS-SD Truck Scale is comparable to other product costing thousands more.
“r” Factor With an “r” Factor of 2.06, the BMS-SD can handle more than twice the legal highway load limit of 34,000 lb.
Module Size At 10’, 12’, 20’, and 23.5’’; the BMS-SD uses fewer load sensors, only 8 on a typical 70′ scale, compared to 10 or more on competitive models.
Weighbridge Thickness At only 10.375″ thick, BMS-SD Truck Scale provides a lower profile, compact, and structurally superior design.
Elevation Profile At 14”, the compact, efficient design of the BMS-HD minimizes approach and exit requirements, yet provides the user total confidence in integrity of the weighbridge. Additional under clearance is easily achieved with convenient base plate risers.
Full Electronic Design Avery Weigh-Tronix has consistently been a leader in utilizing state of the art technology in virtually every aspect of their truck scale product range.
Factory Assembled Minimizes installation time and costs. Insures consistent product quality.
Weighbridge Design An outstanding weighbridge design that includes a sandwich steel deck with 100% welding throughout the structure. The second benefit of the sandwich design is it seals the deck structure from the elements which can reduce the life of the scale.
Corrosion Protection All steel surfaces are commercial blast cleaned to SSPC 6 industry standards. A high performance, high solids, two component urethane primer is applied, followed by a final coat of high quality, heavy-duty polyurethane.
Module Installation The absence of grout plates and the drilled in place anchor bolts mean simple, low cost installation.
Weigh Bars® Capacity of 75,000 lb for each sensor, with 200% overload safety factor and unmatched reliability.
Weigh Bar Performance Impervious to end, side, and torque loading conditions that can destroy conventional load cells.
Weigh Bar Design Produced from high quality aircraft alloy steel bar stock that has been heat treated, quenched, and tempered to resist corrosion. Also provides better repeatability and less hysteresis than stainless steel.
Weigh Bar Reliability Failure rate of only 0.31% compared with a national average of 3 to 5% on conventional load cells.
Weigh Bar Protection Extremely resistant to surge voltage or lightning related problems. Strain gauges are scientifically sealed against moisture or corrosive elements.
Weigh Bar Cabling Stainless steel jacketed cables in factory installed conduit runs.
Easi-Post Self-Checking Rugged Easi-Post™ suspension with self-checking design absorbs shocks and vibration from sudden starting and stopping of vehicles on scale. All components are made with hardened, stainless steel material for outstanding strength, durability, and corrosion protection. No check rods or bumper plates required.
NEMA 4X Stainless Steel Junction Box Compact, all stainless steel junction and summation boxes, with connector-less cables for elimination of moisture or condensation related problems. Includes Gore breather vent to equalize pressure inside and outside the box.
