DESCRIPTION

The SteelBridge XT (FCXT) is a true heavyweight in the industry. It is a premium scale engineered to thrive on heavy, frequent, dayto-day use. The extra-rugged design and construction means structural integrity will be maintained, even after many years of heavy use. With a 15-year weighbridge warranty, you can be sure the FCXT will be operating long after the competitor’s scale has worn out. It arrives at the job site fully assembled and ready for the concrete to be poured, so installation is fast and less expensive.

SPECIFICATIONS

Gross Capacity With a capacity up to 135 tons, this scale can handle a wide range of trucks and configurations.

Platform Lengths Platform lengths from 10′ to 150′; assuring each customer the right size for the application.

Platform Widths Standard widths of 10’, 11’, 12’ wide platforms to assure the right fit for any application.

Concentrated Load Capacity (CLC) At 45 tons, the FCXT Truck Scale is comparable to other products costing thousands more.

“r” Factor With an “r” Factor of 2.65, the FCXT can handle more than 2.5 times the legal highway load limit of 34,000 lb.

Module Size At 10’, 12’, 20’ and 23.5’ the FCXT uses fewer load sensors; only 8 on a typical 70’ scale, compared to 10 or more on competitive models.

Weighbridge Thickness At only 10.25” thick, the FCXT provides a low-profile, compact and structurally superior design.

Elevation Profile At 14”, the compact, efficient design of the FCXT 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 design.

Factory Assembled Minimizes installation time and costs. Insures consistent product quality. No rebar or sheeting required.

Weighbridge Design An outstanding weighbridge design, that includes a 5” field poured concrete deck, on top of a robust steel deck substructure. This superior design places the concrete in a compression application, above the neutral axis and the steel components in a tension application. The FCXT has more steel content than most competitive models.

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 cost 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 lbs for each sensor, with 200% overload safety factor.

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% for conventional load cells.

Weigh Bar Protection Extremely resistant to surge voltage or lightning related problems. Strain gauges are 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.
