Installation of PTW

Two people can carry and install the portable train weigher (PTW) in the selected track location. Weighwell designed and developed a frame which primarily includes entry and exit ramps and a built-in loadcell.

The PTW lifts the wheel tyre but keeps the flange within the rail head. This allows the simultaneous weighing of the wheel flange through a signal from the loadcell.

This signal is then converted by either a digital indicator unit or our ptwX train weighing software with both demonstrating a high degree of accuracy
