Rail Scales

There has been a development in the rail scale industry. Schenk’s new MULTITRAIN® solution offers so much value beyond what was previously available that it’s the only solution we recommend for new installations. Not only does it cost less, but it reduces wear and tear on trains & equipment and allows in-motion weighing, wheel diagnostics, RFID scanning, and more.

Significant improvement OVER previous technology

Recommended For All New Applications

 

In-Motion Weighing Up to 14 mph

Asseses Wheel Condition Up To 155 mph

Low Initial Costs

Low Maintenance Costs

Reduces Wear On Trains, Rails, & Scale

Increases Efficiency

Imposes No Speed Limitation

Reduces Approach & Retreat Requirements

Lower cost

Instead of setting the entire apparatus on load cells, Schenck’s new solution embeds ridged load cells into into concrete railroad ties. These ties can be slipped under the rails with minimal invasion. Not only does this eliminate the need for (and cost of) concrete pads and precast sections, but it eliminates the load jarring associated with them. This means lower maintenance costs, longer equipment life, no speed limit impositions, greater comfort for passengers, less noise, reduced requirements for approach and retreats, and significantly reduced risk of derailment.

Improved safety

The MULTITRAIN® Solution can also diagnose wheel health and determine if the load is uneven or too heavy for the track. Its diagnostics provide more precise data at lower speeds but can still relay valuable wheel insights at speeds up to 155 mph.

Simpler Logistics

In-motion weighing (at up to 14 mph) reduces many logistical burdens, especially for liquid loads which have traditionally needed to be stopped and settled before getting a reading.  The MULTITRAIN® solution is Legal-For-Trade at up to 10 mph and can weigh statically for reference. It is also fitted with RFID readers for simple transactions and can transmit data to remote locations, eliminating the need for operators in many applications.
