This installation is a good example of how customers rely on CompuWeigh to provide them with an integrated solution for high speed rail load out.

We provided our 60,000 BPH scale, which has a total height of only 30′-3″. System included platforms, automatic test weight lifting, hydraulic power unit, lower garner gate control and stainless steel sampler.

The scale is controlled by the state of the art GMS-4000 controller including:

  • SmartTech that automatically monitors the scale for correct operation
  • SmartLoad that ensures that the scale continues to run while a new car is positioned under the spout, and
  • SmartRead that automatically reads the rail cars and calculates the optimum amount to load into each car.

CompuWeigh also provided a full rail loadout automation system using an Allen Bradley ControlLogix PLC and Wonderware HMI computer control system. Additional features included:

  • SmartWatch, which is our high speed digital hazard monitoring system that monitors leg alignment and bearing temperature on the legs and conveyors
  • SmartGate system to provide very exact control of 10 reclaim bins.
