RLP Rail Scale

Rail Scales

The RLP is installed above ground, reducing the time and expense of installation.

Above-ground installation for convenient installation and maintenance

RLP has a modular, low profile design which allows it to be installed above ground.  This reduces the time and expense of installation compared to traditional deep pit scales. 

Above ground installation also ensures good ventilation, keeping corrosion down and eliminating the need for sump pumps.

Ideal rail scale for rugged, harsh environments 

The RLP rail scale is designed to be rugged and reliable, built to both AREMA and Cooper E-80 loading requirements. 

It has a capacity of up to 230 tons and can be as long as 52 feet, if necessary.

Legal for trade

This rail scale is also NTEP and Measurement Canada approved for static weighing, making it suitable for applications where product is sold by weight.


Low installation cost - The pitless design minimizes excavation and simplifies the foundation, resulting in much lower labor and material costs.

Simple pitless design - Just 16 anchors in weighbridge foundation. Above grade installation ensures good ventilation, eliminates the need for sump pumps and reduces corrosion.

Advanced Modular Construction - A single module has a weigh rail length of 12’6” (3.8 m). Two modules give a weigh rail length of 26’ (7.92 m). Standard version with exposed rail or flush deck version available.

Extra capacity load cells - 130,000 lb, NTEP approved, compression load cells provide 30% more capacity.

Self-aligning - Rocker pin assembly ensures even and consistent weight application to the load cells.

Low maintenance - All nuts and bolts are accessible without removing the weighbridge. Load cells are mounted to the main beams keeping mounting bolts away from dirt and moisture.

Rigid checking - Heavy duty checking system stabilizes the scale and reduces wear or damage that can be caused by excessive weighbridge movement. It also reduces stability problems associated with weighing liquids.

Higher dead load - The concrete filled weighbridge increases the preload on the load cells and provides a non-slip surface between rails.

Accommodates different sizes - Heavy duty, two part, adjustable rail clips accommodate 115 lb rails providing convenient and precise rail alignment. Other sizes available upon request.

Load cell protection - Steel covers protect load cells from accidental damage and environment.
