What is a rail scale?
A rail scale is a heavy-duty scale for weighing rail cars in either static or coupled in-motion applications.
What type of rail scales are available?
METTLER TOLEDO has a variety of rail scale solutions depending on the required application. Options include:
Static Rail Scales – for weighing stationary rail cars. These offer proven strength in their structural design, ideal for demanding applications. These also offer proven longevity and long life. By using premium materials and manufacturing practices, these rail scales are known for lasting performance.
Coupled-in-motion Rail Scales – for weighing rail cars as they travel across a section of a railroad track. These offer the highest efficiency in rail weighing. They are also rugged enough to withstand heavy loads and challenging environments year after year.
Rail Scale Conversions – to retrofit older scales by adding the latest in vehicle weighing technology, eliminating problems and extending your scales useful life. This solution helps to put an end of frequent downtime and high repair cost. Additional benefits include higher accuracy for a more profitable scale.
Combo Rail-Truck Scales – for operations requiring both solutions. Some operations require a truck scale and a rail scale. Rather than having each solution separately, which can take up a lot of space, our combo scales provide a single solution to bulk weighing needs. These offer the highest versatility to meet multiple vehicle weighing needs in one scale, saving space and money. They also offer superior strength and are built to handle the loading points of multiple vehicles.
