Weighwell

Weighwell Engineering Ltd were the first company to provide portable train weighing systems. Today with over 28 years experience and knowledge we continue to be the industry leaders with 100’s of systems worldwide. The portable Bogie Weighing Systems are x2 or x3 PTW units and an ideal solution for weighing locomotives and railcars. This type of rail scale will weigh 2 axle or 3 axle bogies instantly.

The PTW indicator and ptwX software provide ‘real-time’’ weighing data. Weighing information is provided on individual wheels, axles and railcars which allows the user to establish if weight distribution is even.

The safety of passengers is of paramount importance and very rarely are railcars perfectly balanced. The consequences of an imbalance of weight could be increased wear to the vehicles with possible issues relating to safety and loading symmetries

Key Benefits of the PTW Bogie Weighing Systems

  • A key interface with our industry leading ptwX train weighing software or PTW Indicator.
  • Eliminates the need to install expensive weighbridges.
  • Saves time and costs.
  • Portable, quick and easy install.
  • Can be used for bogie changes, maintenance facilities and train overhauls.
  • Factory pre-calibration eliminates the need for transportation of test weights or calibrated wagons.
  • The load cells are sealed so that reliable operation is possible.
  • Achievable accuracy of +/- 1% dependent on site conditions.

Our PTW allows for greater flexibility without the need to remove rail fastenings due to its length of only 500mm. This results in a more convenient installation and less ‘flexing’ of the system. The benefits of this are more accurate, repeatable and reliable weighing results.

Our intuitive, multilingual ptwX train weighing software is designed and developed in-house and provides real time ’live’ displays. Multiple customisations such as weighing units and information on weight differentials are also available.
