Brechbuhler Scales, Inc. Cincinnati, OH Installs Heavy Duty Special

Working on a scale

Brechbuhler Scales, Inc. Cincinnati completed a project involving a B-TEK 45’x 28’ Heavy Duty Special for an application that required the resources of B-TEK engineering, Brechbuhler/B-TEK system engineering and outside foundation/structural engineering resources. Patrick Aylward and Steve Trueman received a call from the potential customer to provide a proposal for a scale to weigh a couple types of heavy off-road vehicles, the heaviest being 265,000 lbs, and also be a Legal for Trade Tuck Scale.

Along with the custom design of the scale was the custom design for the concrete foundation. The foundation required its own design due to the geographic location, footprint of the scale and potential weight of the vehicles.

The resources of Steve Myers with B-TEK and Sean Brazill of Brechbuhler Scales, Inc. Fort Wayne along with Bryan Snyder of Brechbuhler Scales, Inc. Corporate were also utilized to provide a B-TEK DD 1050 with programming customized with specific communication and system operation requirements that integrated with the customers process automation software.

Brechbuhler Scales, Inc. Cincinnati received the order and B-TEK designed the One-of–a-Kind scale. The scale was completed and the four, 22.5’ x 14’ scale platforms with (12) 100k Digital load cells were shipped (two wide loads with State Highway Patrol Escorts plus one “standard” truck load) and installed onto the three sided reinforced concrete pit foundation. The scale was tested and calibrated with both of Brechbuhler Scales, Inc. Cincinnati’s Test Trucks and build up test to over 100,000 lbs.
