A Brisbane-based sand and gravel wholesaler recently engaged Diveseco as its new weighing equipment service supplier after receiving a poor standard of service from its current supplier. After using the scale service provider for about a year, and paying good money for what they assumed was value-for-money servicing of their weighbridge and pallet scale, the little service they received over that time proved to be of poor quality.

Regular Weighbridge Servicing is Essential

Weighbridges are heavy industrial weighing devices engineered and designed to accept fully loaded vehicles, sometimes up to 80 tonne in capacity.

How often should scales be calibrated?

2019-06-13T16:15:03+09:30 26th July 2017|

Weighing scales play an important part in many different industrial processes, but over time these precision instruments can become less accurate and less reliable. A number of things can affect the performance of weighing scales such as their workload, their age, how they are used, whether they’re moved from place to place frequently, temperature variations, power surges, dust, humidity and other environmental factors. Measurement is useless without correct calibrated weighing instruments and… Read More
