SURVIVOR® OTR Truck Scale-Image

Unlike most "economy class" models, SURVIVOR® OTR scales don't sacrifice quality for price. Both the OTR concrete and steel deck modules boast wide flange I-beam construction. The steel deck design features 12-12" wide flange 14 lb per foot I-beams on 12" centers running longitudinally with the traffic flow beneath a diamond checkered treadplate. The concrete deck features 12" main beams and 6" beams under a 6" thick slab of concrete. The wide flange I-beam construction helps minimize deflection, (vertical flexing) a major factor in determining the life of the weighbridge. An industry-leading 90,000 lb CLC means you'll have consistent, accurate weighments, even under the toughest conditions. SURVIVOR® OTR scales are designed to accommodate a minimum of 250 trucks per day for 25 years without weighbridge fatigue. This is equivalent to over 2 million weighments. The legal highway DTA loading in most states is 34,000 pounds! Our PE-certified design engineers use the most advanced FEA (Finite Element Analysis) software to examine high stress areas and design SURVIVOR® truck scales based on actual loading characteristics. In addition, our patented load cell suspension design will ensure reliable, legal-for-trade accuracy that you can depend on for years to come. Finally, to make your truck scale investment decision even easier, we back up these real-world advantages with a class leading 5-year weighbridge guarantee.
