The Weighwell PTW1 Heavy Duty (HD) In-Motion Train Weighing System is a portable, dynamic rail weighing system that allows the ‘in-motion’ weighing of wheels, axles, wagons and trains at speeds up to 3mph (5kph).

It can be carried by two people to a rail vehicle in any location and installed in just 15 minutes with an achievable accuracy of +/- 2-3% dependent on operating conditions.

The PTW1 HD In-Motion Train Weighing System is designed to identify individual axle weight overloads that, if undetected, could lead to excessive wear and stress to wheel profiles, axle boxes, bearings, gear boxes, final drive units and suspension components. The PTW1 HD is an ideal solution in arduous environments to provide check-weighing results for the heavy industrial steel, cement, gypsum and minerals markets.

Key Benefits of the PTW1 HD In-Motion Train Weighing System

  • More robust and can withstand an increased weighing range of 40 tonne per axle.
  • No costly civil works required.
  • Portable, quick and easy to install.
  • Axle by axle weighing ensures there is no restriction on wagon type.
  • The weighing results can be exported via USB or printout.
  • The load cells are sealed so that reliable operation is possible, even under poor conditions.

The PTW1 HD is the first portable ‘in-motion’ rail weighing system that can be installed without alterations to the track or foundations. Used for any length of time, it provides reliable and accurate check weighing of all types of trains.
