Waste, Recycling & Scrap Metal Scales

Waste and Recycling Applications

The waste industry requires heavy duty scale equipment that is manufactured to survive long periods of service and harsh environments. From truck scales and onboard weighing systems to weigh scale controllers, our suppliers have developed several heavy-duty weighing products ideal for the waste industry.

For example, Rice Lake onboard weighing systems bring the scale to the product with a variety of solutions for straight-truck, semi-trailer, tipping and roll-off refuse trucks. Truck operators can record load data to accurately track loads as small as individual pick-ups all the way to total gross and net vehicle weights. With cab-mounted displays, operators are always informed of their vehicle weight, optimizing refuse records and on-road safety.

Weight data plays a crucial role in all waste management or recycling industries. From tracking the amount of garbage collected to monitoring inputs and outputs during materials recovery through to extracting energy and disposing of waste, weight information is key to legislative compliance and operational efficiency.

Customers bringing in metals for recycling expect to receive prompt service and have their products weighed on a reliable and accurate legal for trade commercial floor scale system

Weighing scales and systems from Central Carolina Scale collect this vital information every step of the way without slowing down your operation. Our scales document your compliance with health, safety and environmental regulations, allowing you to get on with business. Contact us for a quote today.

How Accurate are Scrap Yard Scales?

Generally our selection of legal for trade scales for metal recycling are accurate to within 0.1 of one percent. For scrap hauling and transfer stations, Rice Lake SURVIVOR® truck scales provide extreme durability and unbeatable accuracy. Rice Lake has developed several models of Legal for Trade truck scales ideally suited for the scrap and recycling industries—there is a SURVIVOR truck scale to fit the operation, or Rice Lake will custom-build it. The OTR steel or concrete deck models can be installed above ground or as a pit-type, and with Rice Lake’s patented G-Force™ suspension system, SURVIVOR scales self-check, eliminating the need for check rods and bumper bolts.

Paired with SURVIVOR truck scales, Rice Lake’s automated ticketing systems (ATS) and kiosks improve more than just speed and vehicle throughput—an ATS keeps drivers in their cabs, enhancing safety for all. Optional ATS and truck scale accessories for scrap and recycling stations include printers, traffic lights, barrier gates and messaging and remote displays.

Rice Lake indicators/controllers are smart, fast and are built with the user’s process in mind. When a scrap or recycling enterprise’s business depends on measuring incoming and outgoing material, an accurate weight reading is paramount. Rice Lake offers scale indicators and controllers that provide not only remarkably accurate weight readouts, but also intuitive programming and the ability to record data, automate applications, print customer tickets and even more capabilities the scrap and recycling industries demand.

How do you Weigh Scrap Metal?

Rice Lake’s affordable and versatile railroad scale, is the ideal solution for scrap and recycling yards that can’t afford the space, time and cost of a conventional rail scale, but need to accurately measure the total gross weight of rail cars. Less than one-third the cost of traditional rail scales and with an eight hour installation time, RailBoss fits in the scrap yard and the budget.

In scrap and recycling facilities, weight is a critical component. From massive onsite scrap metal transfer stations with truck and rail scales, to the ticket that prints the load readout, accurate and durable scales are one of the most important factors in scrap and recycling equipment.
