CWC-512S – 50,000 BPH with 4′ of additional upper garner

12′ x 12′ x 32′

Control Equipment:
CD-4000 bulkweighing control system
SmartTech automatic scale diagnostics[sc:clear ]

The customer selected our 12′ wide 50,000 BPH scale that has a lower height than competitive 40,000 BPH systems while delivering around 60,000 BPH throughput.

The scale is controlled by our CD-4000 bulkweighing control system. This customer has standardized on our GMS Designer System for their truck and rail systems and their internal IT Group updates these controllers to GMS. This allows for the seamless flow of information to accounting and the use of our SmartRead that automatically reads the rail cars and calculates the optimum amount to load into each car.

The customer upgraded our standard scale system by specifying:

  • 4′ of additional upper garner providing ½ a minute of additional leg running time
  • Lower garner gate with position control
  • 4-sided third tier platform at top of scale
  • Empty level sensor on Lower Garner to use our SmartLoad system that ensures that the scale continues to run while a new car is being positioned.
