The Weighwell PTW1 Portable Train Weighing System allows the ‘in-motion’ weighing of wheels, axles, wagons and trains. It can be carried by two people to a rail vehicle in any location and installed in just 15 minutes.

The PTW1 Portable 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 is an ideal solution to provide check-weighing results for the heavy industrial steel, cement, gypsum and minerals markets.

Key Benefits of the PTW1 Portable Train Weighing System

  • No costly civil works required.
  • No modifications to existing rail.
  • Portable, quick to install and easy to use.
  • Axle by axle weighing ensures there is no restriction on wagon type.
  • Individual wheel weights in-motion.
  • The load cells are sealed so that reliable operation is possible, even under poor conditions.

The PTW1 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, accurate check weighing of all types of trains.

Simple and Easy Weighing Information

The PTW1 is easy to use and operates via our in-house developed digital indicator unit. The weighing data is outputted via a simple and instantaneous printout from our thermal printout or exported via USB. The advantage of exporting via USB is that it provides the ability to carry further more in-depth analysis of the weighing results. The results can be exported to a variety of different files types such as .csv files (more commonly known as Excel).
