How Scales Are Delivered and Installed
Scale delivery and installation is a multi-step process, and we can help you every step of the way. Here’s what to expect when you purchase a truck scale from Accurate/Western Scale Co. Ltd. in Alberta.
Choosing a weigh scale. The first step is to choose a truck scale that best suits your company’s needs. Our experts at our Alberta headquarters can guide you through the various makes and models to ensure you have the best scale for the job.
Truck scale site inspection. Choosing where to install your scale is just as important as the type of scale you buy. We can visit your site and help you determine the best placement and setup. You must consider the turning radius and size of vehicles using the scale to ensure enough space to manoeuvre. Trucks should enter and exit the scale in a straight line.
When installing a pit-mounted scale, for example, you need to avoid areas where there are underground electrical, water, sewer and gas lines. Additionally, scale installation often involves a crane, so you’ll need to be aware of any overhead power lines that may cause a hazard.
Truck scale site preparation. Our technicians will also tell you what preparation you need to do. Preparation may include clearing debris, excavation and grading. In addition, you must contact your local zoning department and ensure you meet all construction and electrical requirements and get the necessary building permits.
You’ll also be responsible for pouring the foundation for the scale. The foundation can be a concrete pit or slab. We can deliver your scale as soon as the foundation is ready.
Truck scale delivery and installation. Before delivery, you’ll have to arrange for a crane to arrive on-site on delivery day to unload the scale from the truck and put it in place. Meanwhile, Accurate/Western Scale Co. Ltd. partners with trusted transportation companies to ensure your unit safely reaches its destination.
Our experts will be ready on-site when the scale arrives, gets moved into place and is aligned. We’ll then wire the load cells and grout the scale according to specifications.
Once the scale is in place, you’ll need to build the approach slabs. Our technicians will return when the slabs are done to finish the installation and calibrate your scale. Measurement Canada accredits our technicians to certify your scale as legal for trade. Your scale is then ready to use.
