Arc Infrastructure Gutha High Speed Weighbridge
In Western Australia, at Gutha in the mid-west, Meridian has installed a high speed weighbridge system for Arc Infrastructure as part of that organisation’s $550m upgrade project. The weighbridge is part of an asset protection supersite to ensure trains travelling on the rail network are correctly balanced and also not overloaded.
The weighbridge was calibrated and tested for Arc Infrastructure Rail and found to weigh individual loaded wagons with less than 1% error over a speed range of 20 – 80kph. It was found to weigh loaded trains with less than 0.2% error over a speed range of 20-80kph.
