Robust and durable truck scale, fits quickly to existing foundations
The LP8 truck scale doesn’t compromise on quality or strength, however. This vehicle scale can handle twice the legal highway axle load limit and up to 135 tons capacity.
The high-strength characteristics and extra-low elevation profile of the BridgeMont Low-Pro 8 makes it an ideal replacement unit for other brands of worn out scales on existing foundations.
Ready for use immediately
Each scale is fully factory assembled, pre-calibrated, and performance tested to exacting NIST, NTEP, and ISO specifications, prior to shipment.
Rugged, reliable truck scale
Our vehicle scales utilize the Weigh Bar; an extremely rugged, highly reliable, load sensing device that is designed to overcome the shortcomings of many competitor load cells.
The unique, patented design provides inherent strength and overload protection, while also providing accuracy and high reliability.
Industry leading warranty
All Avery Weigh-Tronix truck scales/weighbridges come backed by industry leading warranty options to ensure a low cost-of-ownership.
The ZM305 Series Indicator with truck scale In/Out software application simpli es vehicle weighing. Track up to 250 different open transactions and
store up to 1,000 completed transactions. You can also store up to 500 tare weights. Other instruments are available with a wide range of features and functionality.
With a capacity of 45 to 135 tons this scale can handle a wide range of trucks and con gurations.
Typical platform lengths are 15’ and 17.5’ nominal. Combine several platforms to reach up to 120’; assuring each customer the right size for the application.
Standard widths of 10’ and 11’ to fit a wide range of existing foundations
Concentrated Load Capacity (CLC)
At 45 tons, the BMS-LP8 Truck Scale is comparable to other product costing thousands more
With an “r” Factor of 2.65, the BMS-LP8 can handle more than 2.5 times the legal highway axle load limit of 34,000 lb.
At only 8.375” and using thirteen heavy-duty 8”wide flange beams, the BMS-LP8 Truck Scale provides a lower profile, compact, and structurally superior design.
At only 10.375" thick, BMS-SD Truck Scale provides a lower pro le, compact, and structurally superior design.
At 11.25”, the compact, e cient design of the BMS-LP8 minimizes approach and exit requirements, yet provides the user total con dence in integrity of the weighbridge.
Full Electronic Design
Avery Weigh-Tronix has consistently been a leader in utilizing state of the art technology in virtually every aspect of their truck
scale product range.
Minimizes installation time and costs. Insures consistent product quality.
An outstanding weighbridge design that includes a sandwich steel deck design that greatly increases the strength of the scale. The 8” beams are continuously welded to ¼” checkered deck plate and 3⁄16” bottom plate
All steel surfaces are commercial blast cleaned to SSPC 6 industry standards. A high performance, high solids, two component urethane primer is applied, followed by a nal coat of high quality, heavy-duty polyurethane.
The absence of grout plates and the drilled in place anchor bolts mean simple, low cost installation.
Capacity of 75,000 lb for each sensor, with 200% overload safety factor and unmatched reliability.
Weigh Bar Performance
Impervious to end, side, and torque loading conditions that can destroy conventional load cells.
Weigh Bar Design
Produced from high quality aircraft alloy steel bar stock that has been heat treated, quenched, and tempered to resist corrosion.
Also provides better repeatability and less hysteresis than stainless steel.
Weigh Bar Reliability
Failure rate of only 0.31% compared with a national average of 3 to 5% on conventional load cells.
Weigh Bar Protection
Extremely resistant to surge voltage or lightning related problems. Strain gauges are scienti cally sealed against moisture or
Weigh Bar Cabling
Stainless steel jacketed cables in factory installed conduit runs.
Rugged Easi-Post™ suspension with self-checking design absorbs shocks and vibration from sudden starting and stopping of
vehicles on scale. All components are made with hardened, stainless steel material for outstanding strength, durability, and
corrosion protection. No check rods or bumper plates required.
NEMA 4X Stainless Steel Junction Box
Compact, all stainless steel junction and summation boxes, with connector-less cables for elimination of moisture or
condensation related problems. Includes Gore breather vent to equalize pressure inside and outside the box.
