Rail Scales

Rail weighing is extremely important in many components of rail road operations, from monitoring product deliveries to avoiding overload penalties. Some of the reasons for weighing rail cars and wagons are as a way to charge customers for the amount of product shipped and to ensure your shipping company isn’t overcharging. You might also use railroad track scales to determine the weight of cars and wagons to collect freight revenue and certainly to avoid overloading and avoid eccentric loading, which can damage cars, wagons and rail infrastructure and lead to dangerous events like derailments. At Central Carolina Scale, we offer a wide variety of accurate, affordable, and high quality train and rail weighing scales from several different scale manufacturers. From simple static systems which weigh single rail cars to bespoke dynamic systems for weighing full trains in motion.
