The SAMURAI CC pour-on-site concrete weighbridge is ideal for a wide range of applications, providing a robust, maintenance free, weighing deck
The weight of the steel deck framework used to retain the ready mixed concrete is less than the equivalent full steel weighbridge and therefore the Samurai CC structure is relatively easy to man oeuvre into position, without the need for heavy duty cranes.
This steel frame (complete with reinforcing) is installed on site with dummy load cells and then in-filled with ready-mixed concrete. When this has cured, the stainless steel fully weld-sealed digital or analogue load cells are fitted in place of the dummies and the system calibrated. Such ‘pour on site’ installations reduce the overall transportation carbon footprint and on site craneage requirements. The non-slip finish provides an excellent skid resistant surface.
This design of weighbridge is ideal for indoor installations where access is restricted for cranes. The Samurai CC can be supplied in custom sizes (imperial and metric) to be fitted into existing weighbridge pits.
In some extremely wet, frosty and potentially corrosive environments, a concrete structure may provide a durable solution with greater traction. Concrete structures require higher installation time and efforts as concrete needs time to pour, level, dry out and cure before use. For durability, concrete structures need to be adequately reinforced by high strength steel construction since concrete is extremely strong in compression (top of structure) but is known to be weaker in tension (bottom of structure). Ramps: In the case of surface mounted weighbridges, approach ramps are required which can be of concrete or steel structure. Remember that ramps take the brute force of being hit by a vehicle as it mounts the ramp. Concrete can offer longevity, while steel is ideal if the weighbridge is likely to be moved.
