Fairbanks released new portable axle load scale

Nov. 18, 2016
Fairbanks Scales announced the release of its Portable Axle Load Scale.

Fairbanks Scales announced the release of the Portable Axle Load Scale (PALS), a weighing solution for application requirements that comply with non-commercial vehicle axle weights.

“Fairbanks’ PALS eliminates the need for a pier or slab foundation,” the company said. “It is constructed in a sub-frame, requiring only a flat, unyielding surface to install and complete the unit. This makes it possible to install PALS on concrete or asphalt already in place, saving time and money. With single-day installation and no foundation, a change in process, traffic flow, or location is easily accommodated by PALS flexible design.”

PALS is fabricated out of USA extruded structural steel members, with scale ramps constructed to the same standards as the weighbridge, the company added. Fairbanks also noted that ramps come standard in a full-width design that accommodates wheel bases for most highway vehicles. Each of the four stainless steel load cells is designed to handle extra-heavy loads, with a capacity of 50,000 lbs.

This scale operates in a wide range of applications from moving and shipping to light manufacturing. It is built with anticipated daily weighments of 50 trucks or less and has an ultra-low 6” profile.
