For these reasons, the accuracy of a weighbridge, like any other weighing device, is likely to change over time and/or components may fail and result in a weighbridge breakdown.
These factors can cause the weighbridge to provide incorrect measurements, which cause issues such as overfilling, underfilling, materials waste, and/or accidental overloading and and infringement of CoR compliance requirements. A weighbridge breakdown is likely to lead to production downtime and costly repairs.
For all these reasons, it’s important that a weighbridge is tested and serviced on a regular basis by suitably qualified technicians to reduce exposure to these risks. The current industry standard is two to four visits each year depending on the usage of the weighbridge.
Diverseco’s weighbridge service teams are able to service a broad range of other weighbridge brands in addition to the models we manufacture.
