Automated weighbridge cleaning
ARTICLE
Cleaning beneath the weighbridge with a hosepipe used to be a difficult and time-consuming task, requiring high levels of manual handling.

The quarry manager has now found a more effective method. A two inch galvanised steel pipe has been attached alongside the weighbridge complete with several taps which release a fine spray underneath the bridge.

For just £500, the new system has reduced manual handling and the risk of slips, trips and falls. The manufacturers of the weighbridge consider it to be good practice, as it maintains accuracy of the bridge for longer and makes it easier to maintain.
