Truck Weigh Scale Evaluation

In working with solid waste management staff and wastewater plant operations staff, PECI evaluated on-site weighing options at several wastewater treatment plants to assist our client with maintaining compliance with local, state and federal transportation rules.   Reviewing container loading and hauling operations, analyzing sludge processing data, and current documentation, PECI evaluated various weighing options including portable scales, steel deck scales, low speed weighing scales, electronic or hydraulic load cells on the existing container systems, and overhauling the existing sludge conveying and receiving equipment with a new silo discharge system. Conceptual layouts and preliminary costs were developed for each of the options presented.  In addition, modifications to operational procedures were included that could be performed without capital expenditures to maintain compliance with transportation rules.
