Rice Lake RailBoss™ Rail Scales

For weight verification and other non-NTEP needs, the RailBoss rail scale is a cost-effective and easy-to-install method for weighing stationary railroad cars. Powered by Rice Lake's 920i® and RailBoss software, RailBoss can be purchased as an eight-section Full-Draft system, or a simpler four-section Double Draft model.

RailBoss utilizes MS quick-disconnect cable connectors to reduce unexpected maintenance and repairs. The enhanced cable connectors automatically release before reaching damaging tension, saving valuable repair time and replacement costs.

Many scrap yards, agricultural operations and plants that could not justify the space, installation time and cost of a conventional rail scale can afford to install our RailBoss rail scale. It usually takes less than eight hours to install and is less than one-third the cost.

Due to the wide variety of installation configurations, please consult the factory to discuss application requirements and to receive complete specifications and price quotations.

Cardinal LPRA Low-Profile Railroad Track Scale

Cardinal Scale’s LPRA low-profile railroad track scales features heavy-duty rugged steel weighbridges, stainless steel USA-made electronic or hydraulic load cells (hydraulic load cells are impervious to lightning and water damage), 20 different models available, up to 270-ton gross capacities, E-80 Cooper AREMA rating, and accuracy class IIIL legal for trade (NTEP and Measurement Canada).

The UV-protected, anti-corrosion tan powder paint compliments any environment and all weighbridges are shot-blasted and power-washed clean of debris before painting for optimum quality.

The low-profile design eliminates the expense and maintenance of a pit meaning construction costs are lower.

Cardinal RSCA Pit-Type Railroad Track Scale

The massively constructed, heavy steel weighbridge of Cardinal’s model RSCA railroad scale is stabilized laterally with checkrods and other specially designed restraints. Weighrails are sealed into the platform.

Special design techniques and manufacturing procedures prevent excessive dirt, moisture and foreign material from entering the pit, providing this rugged electronic scale accuracy, dependability and exceptionally long life.

The unique weighbridge design prevents lateral forces, caused from rail traffic going on and off the platform, from being transmitted to the load cells. NTEP legal-for-trade.
