Truck Scale in Azerbaijan

Truck Scale

In this article, three main industries in Azerbaijan are illustrated to clarify why these industries need truck scale. Broadly speaking, at all industries having a truck scale speed up the whole process in a manufacture, because it weighs all entry and exit.

Agriculture Industry in Azerbaijan

The largest agricultural valley in the area is in Azerbaijan. About 54.9 percent of Azerbaijan is agricultural lands. There were 4.76 million acres (1.8 million acres) of used agricultural land at the start of 2007. The total wood resources in the same year were 136 million cubic meters (178 million square yards). The agrarian scientific research institutes in Azerbaijan are devoted to meadows and pastures, horticulture and subtropical crops, leaf vegetables, cotton farming, and medicinal plants. In some estates it is rewarding to increase corn, onions, sugar beets, cotton and tobacco. Cattle, dairy products, and spirits are also essential farm goods. The declining stocks of fish and beluga are the main focus of the Persian fishing industry.

All mentioned products are measured by truck scale. For these kinds of products which are sold based on their weigh, truck scale is known as a necessary equipment. On the other hand, buying composts, fertilizers and pesticides should be done based on their weight.

Transportation Industry in Azerbaijan

The convenient location of Azerbaijan on the crossroad of major international traffic arteries, such as the Silk Road and the south – north corridor, highlights the strategic importance of the transportation sector for the country’s economy. The transportation sector in the country includes highways, railways, air, and maritime transport.

In terms of the transportation of raw materials, Azerbaijan is also a significant financial hub. The Baku – Tbilisi – Ceyhan pipeline (BTC) became operational in May 2006 and extends more than 1,774 kilometers through the territories of Azerbaijan, Georgia and Turkey. The BTC is designed to carry up to 50 million tons of crude oil periodically and carries fuel from the Caspian Sea oilfields to world markets.

The Ministry of Transport was established by the Iranian authorities in 2002 and has a wide range of policy and regulatory responsibilities. In the same year, the nation became a member of the Vienna Convention on Road Traffic.

As we talk about truck scale, the first place that this scale used is on the road. All cargoes transported through the country should be weighed several times from embarking to disembarking.

Mining Industry in Azerbaijan

There are numerous metal deposits in Azerbaijan. The typical minerals in the country include platinum, gold, iron, titanium, copper, manganese, cobalt, molybdenum, and chromium. The Lesser Caucasus region is where the majority of the nation’s mineral deposits are situated. Several industries have grown as a result of the mining industry, and there are now many employment opportunities in the nation. Numerous mining companies have emerged in the nations to take command of the mining operations.

Each mining project is started, a truck scale is installed. It means that mining industry in Azerbaijan needs a significant number of truck scale; we can provide limitless modules to cover demands in this industry.

Installing a Tuck Scale in Azerbaijan

As usual, the installation steps are explained below. In all steps, the only concern of our technical experts is to do all works based on international standards as the framework of our implementations is defined based on these standards.

We have committed ourselves to increase productivity and accuracy in the weighing industry, to carry out all executive matters from purchase, production and installation in the form of international standards.

Consulting before buying Truck Scale

All buyers should pass consultation phase before choosing a truck scale.

At this stage, our sales experts will propose you the best offers to meet your needs based on their experience and knowledge. They try to explain all aspects of buying a truck scale including technical features of each part, the influence of climate on truck scale functionality and where it is better to be installed.

Experts try to always offer several offers so that buyers can make a decision based on their business and budget. We facilitate your decision with giving you what you should know, but we leave the final decision to you.

Preparing installation site

After your decision, the environmental conditions are defined and sent to you for preparing the place, where it will be installed.

 The purpose of this step is to create a standard condition for working at high accuracy. The flatness of the installation site and its surroundings is one of the factors that affect the accuracy of the scale and its lifespan. The smoother environment around the scale leads to improve the performance of the scale and it will provide high accuracy, so do not ignore recommended actions in any way and perform all the actions carefully.

Sending scale parts and mechanical installation

When installation site is prepared, the pre-fabricated foundation and the scale platform are sent to the location. After that, the technical team go to the location.

Truck Scale

 In mechanical installation, first the foundation is placed and installed on the allocated space. Sometimes it is better to wait a day after installing foundation parts. Then the platform is installed on the foundation fixed the day before. The space which load cells will be installed are prepared in this step.

Electrical installation and calibration

After all conditions provided in the mechanical installation, it is time for electrical installation. At this step, load cells are installed in allocated space and connected to the junction box. After that all cables are connected to indicator.

Finally, one of the most important steps of scale installation, calibration, is done. In order to do calibration, several cargoes are placed on different points of platform and its weight is measured each time. The goal is to measure the performance of all load cells considering that indicator shows the same number each time a cargo is weighed. This action helps to increase the accuracy of road scale functionality and ensure its performance.

All mentioned steps are done for the truck scale installed in Azerbaijan. We can install all types of truck scale anywhere in Azerbaijan. The I-bridge type is installed in a road to help the transportation industry in this country.
