Fairbanks Scales Inc., a scale and weighing equipment company based in Overland Park, Kansas, has announced the launch of the HC Lift Deck modular truck scales, a truck weighing solution for waste transfer applications.   

Fairbanks says the HC Lift Deck is its solution to maintenance dilemmas faced by transfer station operators nationwide. The HC Lift Deck’s weighing modules may be individually lifted and removed with a front loader or other lightweight lifting equipment. Recalibrating the scale also isn’t required when a module is set back in place. Simply reset the module and get right back to weighing.   

Some of the features and benefits that the scales offer include: 

  • a removable deck for timely access to clean and maintain pits;  

  • a dual remote display so loader operators can distribute the load evenly in trailers while maximizing each load before leaving the tunnel;  

  • narrow modules to ensure each tire has its own scale platform and to keep the weight manageable so each platform can be removed using simple equipment;   

  • self-centering cones that allow the decks to be reset in place without any additional tools and to ensure no need for resetting the calibration;  

  • remotely located electronics that keep the electronics out of the pit, preventing rodents and trash contamination from damaging them and making cleanout easier; and  

  • customizable configurations to accommodate the different truck/trailers used at a facility, but with a minimal amount of scale surface area to keep maintenance and cleaning as efficient as possible.
