These scales are specifically designed for static weighing operations and have gained a reputation for their exceptional performance in high-accuracy, legal-for-trade weighing applications. Furthermore, they adhere to the stringent AREMA and Cooper E-80 design specifications, ensuring compliance with industry standards.

Among the SURVIVOR track scales, there are two prominent models: the SURVIVOR RT Pit Type railroad track scale and the SURVIVOR PL Modular Type railroad track scale.

The SURVIVOR RT is a pit type scale that offers superior accuracy and durability. It has been meticulously crafted to handle heavy-duty weighing tasks, making it ideal for weighing rail cars in static operations. This scale is capable of delivering precise and reliable measurements consistently, ensuring optimal efficiency in rail transportation processes.

On the other hand, the SURVIVOR PL stands out as a low-profile, pitless modular railroad track scale. This robust workhorse is constructed with a higher steel content compared to its competitors, guaranteeing decades of dependable and accurate rail car weighing. The SURVIVOR PL excels in versatility, offering both full-draft and two-draft weighing capabilities, giving operators greater flexibility in handling various types of rail cars and cargo.

Both the SURVIVOR RT and SURVIVOR PL models are built to withstand the harshest environmental conditions and rigorous usage. They are designed to withstand heavy loads and repetitive weighing, making them dependable assets for railway operations.

The SURVIVOR railroad track scales from Rice Lake are renowned for their ruggedness, accuracy, and adherence to industry standards. Whether you choose the pit type RT scale or the pitless PL modular scale, you can count on top-notch performance, longevity, and exceptional weighing capabilities for your rail car weighing needs.

The SURVIVOR® PL is a low-profile, pitless modular railroad track scale. This heavy-duty workhorse is manufactured with more steel content than competitive models to provide decades of accurate rail car weighing. With the SURVIVOR PL, both full-draft and two-draft weighing is available.


Rail Boss

The RailBoss system is a cutting-edge solution for accurately measuring the gross weight of rail cars. Comprising a series of five-feet, 10-inch rail sections, each fitted with highly precise strain gauges, RailBoss functions as individual weighbridges for single wheels on the rail cars. This advanced system not only provides the total weight of the rail car but also offers weight readings for each individual rail truck.

Flexibility is a key feature of RailBoss, as rail cars can be positioned using various means, such as track mobiles, tug motors, locomotives, or any other convenient method. Once the rail car is in place, Rice Lake's weight indicator comes into play, clearly displaying the accurate weight measurements. You have the choice between the 1280 Enterprise™ Series, which offers large, color touchscreen convenience, and the 920i® for standard operation, catering to your specific preferences and needs.

RailBoss is specifically designed to accommodate rail cars with truck centers ranging from five-feet, nine-inch to five-feet, 11-inch. It can be easily installed in any location with straight and level track, requiring at least three car lengths. The installation process is efficient and non-disruptive to rail traffic, as the RailBoss sections are bolted onto existing track and ties.

The system's versatility extends to the type of rail it supports. The standard RailBoss is compatible with 90RA, 115RE, or 132RE rail. Additionally, custom rail sizes can be accommodated to suit unique requirements.

With RailBoss, you can ensure precise and reliable weight measurements for rail cars, enhancing safety and operational efficiency. Its straightforward installation and ability to provide both total car weight and individual rail truck weights make it an indispensable tool for rail car weighing across diverse applications.
