VTC221 Truck Scales - Overview - METTLER TOLEDO

VTC221 Truck Scales

Designed, Tested, and Built to last

Model VTC221 is the strongest METTLER TOLEDO concrete deck truck scale. It combines a concrete driving surface with a robust orthotropic understructure similar to those used in our steel deck truck scales. This composite design draws upon the strengths of both concrete and steel to produce an exceptionally durable structure. It also eliminates a common cause of premature deck failure: voids in the deck that occur when pouring concrete around I-beam flanges and sharp corners. As a result, you get a weighbridge capable of handling high volumes of traffic over a long service life. Model VTC221 uses POWERCELL® PDX® load cells, which offer unequalled reliability and a predictive diagnostics system designed to keep your scale up and running. By combining the strength of an orthotropic weighbridge with the reliability of POWERCELL load cells, this truck scale ensures that you will get years of trouble-free weighing even in the harshest environments.

POWERCELL Load Cells 
  POWERCELL PDX load cells deliver the ultimate in vehicle weighing with unequaled accuracy and reliability. They eliminate junction boxes and are hermetically sealed for use in the toughest environments. The predictive diagnostics system monitors performance and reports on network health.
Orthotropic Design
 Model VTC221 easily handles the forces generated by normal truck traffic, distributing concentrated loads more effectively than standard I-beam deck structures. The robust orthotropic design is similar to the one used on the Golden Gate Bridge and many other highway bridges around the world.
Lightning Protection
 The specially designed StrikeShield™ lightning protection system helps prevent costly downtime by using multiple levels of protection to safeguard your entire scale system: load cells, cables, and terminal. It is the only system that has been tested by third-party laboratories and withstood multiple lightning strikes without failure.
Proven Performance
 Using the “Module Masher” accelerated-life-cycle test stand, we have tested actual scale modules for 2 million cycles with a minimum live load of 80,000 lb dual-tandem-axle load tire pattern (equal to 20 years of truck traffic). This is one of the ways that METTLER TOLEDO goes beyond the competition to provide the most reliable scales in the industry.
