VTS231 Truck Scale
The Mettler-Toledo Model VTS231 truck scale sets the industry standard for steel-deck truck scales and is the ideal choice for a wide variety of vehicle weighing applications in Alaska. The steel deck is supported by orthotropic ribs that are completely sealed from the elements by automated, continuous welds. By pressure testing every rib, it ensures an airtight seal that eliminates the potential for rusting from the inside, unlike scale designs that sandwich beams between top and bottom plates using intermittent welds.
The ribs are shaped to distribute concentrated loads better than I-beam designs, leading to a longer life for your scale. By combining the strength of an orthotropic weighbridge with the reliability of POWERCELL® PDX®load cells, this truck scale ensures that you will get years of trouble-free weighing even in the harshest environments and toughest applications.
PDX FOR ALASKA
POWERCELL PDX load cells deliver the ultimate in vehicle weighing with un-equalled accuracy and reliability. They eliminate junction boxes and are hermetically sealed for use in the toughest environments in Alaska. The predictive diagnostics system monitors performance and reports on your network health.
The Mettler-Toledo VTS231 truck scale handles the forces generated by normal truck traffic, distributing concentrated loads more effectively than standard I-beam deck structures. The robust orthotropic design is similar to those used on the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco and ideal for the harsh environments that Alaska endures
The specially designed StrikeShield™ lightning protection system helps prevent costly downtime by using multiple levels of protection to safeguard your entire scale system: load cells, cables, and terminal. It is the only system that has been tested by third-party laboratories and withstood multiple lightning strikes.
Using the “Module Masher” accelerated-life-cycle test stand, actual scale modules are tested for 2 million cycles with a minimum 80,000-lb dual-tandem-axle live load tire pattern (equal to 20 years of truck traffic). This is one way the Mettler-Toledo brand goes beyond the competition to ensure that you get the most reliable scale in the industry.
