WEIGHBRIDGE FOUNDATIONS COMPROMISED BY UNDERGROUND WATER

Weighbridge Testing With Certified Test Weights
Weighbridge Testing With Certified Test Weights

A Weighbridge’s foundations were being compromised in Western Australia by the flow of underground water eroding soil.

Project Managed by Accuweigh’s Willetton branch in Perth, the weighbridge’s foundations required underpinning to stabilise the soil and to prevent further subsidence.

Foundation movement under a load bearing point of the Weighbridge caused damage to one of the Weighbridge load cells and its mounting cups. After the foundations were stabilised, Accuweigh’s Weighbridge service crew returned to site, aligned all load bearing points and replaced the damaged load cell and cups.

The Weighbridge was fully tested with test weights, re-calibrated and then certified for trade use. Accuweigh is Australia’s largest supplier of Weighbridges and has eight branches offering superior service support on all weighbridges across mainland states.
