SURVIVOR railroad track scales incorporate Rice Lake’s best-in-class weighbridge design to create a rugged, accurate heavy duty weighing system. Used in static weighing operations, the SURVIVOR RT Pit Type railroad track scale and the SURVIVOR PL Modular Type railroad track scale excel in high-accuracy, legal-for-trade weighing and meet AREMA and Cooper E-80 design specifications.
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.
RailBoss is a series of five-feet, 10-inch rail sections fitted with strain gauges to accurately measure the gross weight of rail cars. Each section of rail is an individual weighbridge for a single wheel. The system provides total car weight plus weight readings for individual rail trucks. Rail cars can be positioned in various ways: track mobile, tug motors, locomotives or other convenient means. Once the rail car is in position, Rice Lake's weight indicator displays the weight. Choose the 1280 Enterprise™ Series for large, color touchscreenconvenience or the 920i® for standard operation.
RailBoss is designed for rail cars with five-feet, nine-inch to five-feet, 11-inch truck centers and can be installed in any location that has straight and level track for at least three car lengths. RailBosssections
are bolted onto existing track and ties, minimizing installation time and disruption of rail traffic. The standard RailBoss utilizes 90RA, 115RE or 132RE rail. Custom rail sizes are also available.
