Six Facts About SURVIVOR® Truck Scales
Six facts outline vital elements that make SURVIVOR truck scales the Toughest Scales on Earth®.
1. G-Force™ Technology for Load Cell Stability
With G-Force technology, the gravitational force gained from the scale mounting impact of the truck creates a self-centering action on the load cells. This design protects load cells from side load shocks and eliminates the need to install check rods and bumper bolts, reducing wear and additional costs.
2. Open Bottom Weighbridge Protection
The SURVIVOR truck scale’s open bottom design provides breathing room and allows air circulation, deterring heavy moisture buildup and premature rusting. Competitive models with an enclosed cavity design predispose the steel to earlier decay. SURVIVOR’s exposed surfaces are protected with an industrial asphalt emulsion undercoat or a powder coat finish for a tough defense against extreme weather and corrosive site conditions.
3. Load Cell Pockets Offer Protection Where it Matters
SURVIVOR integrated load cell pockets are fabricated from 12” wide-flange, 14 lb steel beams and welded inside the outer I-beam, resulting in a load cell pocket with superior durability.
4. Scales with More Steel Last Longer
Built with up to 25% more steel than most competitive models, SURVIVOR truck scales have stronger, higher quality weighbridges. These scales include more structural I-beams longitudinally throughout the weighbridge so truck tires are continuously supported by an I-beam.
5. Designed to Withstand Extreme Use
Based on interstate bridge standards, SURVIVOR truck scales are designed to meet the heavy demands of industrial weighing. They undergo FEA (Finite Element Analysis) testing to help Rice Lake engineers design the best heavy-capacity scale systems. In ideal conditions, SURVIVOR truck scales can accommodate heavy scale usage, up to 250 trucks per day for 25 years, saving consumers money over time on unanticipated reparis.
6. More Versatility
The customization of scale size, finish or module configuration can provide a valuable solution when there is a site restriction or system requirement. Whatever design is desired, the same high value and integrity will accompany any SURVIVOR brand truck scale.
