Loading Scales

Loading systems for trucks and container filling

Capacity: 50 - 120 t/hour

The VW-500 loading scale is developed for a modern silo logistics system. This type of system is necessary to ensure the scale is extremely accurate – it can achieve measurements accurate to within +/-20 kg for total loads of 25,000 kg for standard products such as granulate, sugar or other products. The risk of overloading trucks is eliminated, and the system allows for precision- loading of the individual vehicle chambers.

The system is certified by 2014/32/EU. In future, it will no longer be necessary to weigh the truck for a second time. The procedure can be saved electronically, and order processing can be performed automatically if the system is connected to a database or software system such as SAP. All weighing data will be stored in a backup memory for at least 3 months. The system can also be integrated with existing silo centres or other sites depending on a customer’s specific requirements.

Weighing system

The scale has a dosing system for coarse and fine feed stuffs. Most loads of these materials have a capacity of 500 kg. The discharge opening must be large enough to permit loads to be discharged quickly. All weight measurements will be correctly read and stored.

Silo connection

Silos can be connected in a number of different ways. This enables the use of a docking station, which can be attached to the silo’s flange. Alternatively, there is a pipe system that fits around the silo outlet, but is not permanently connected. Target accuracy reaches a minimum of +/-50 mm.

Mobile systems

Along with stationary net scales for truck loading and unloading, we have also developed mobile systems for mobile silo logistics. These systems are verifiable and can be integrated into superior silo control systems. Automatic truck loading has become an indispensable feature for modern silo systems.
