Tilt Weighing Indicators for EDI Mining Trucks
We recently supplied and fitted Rinstrum tilt indicators and sensors to EDI Mining trucks at Goonyella and Mt Thorley. The customer was having issues with weighing on level ground which was a constant problem given the terrain they were dealing with. They were using American based equipment that led to problems when spare parts were required – trucks could be off the road for 1 -2 weeks waiting for freight to arrive.
We suggested replacing the American gear with Rinstrum equipment, a locally made product that can weigh correctly up to 15 degrees off level, be it front, rear, right or left axis, the equipment weighs correctly. The unit installed at Goonyella has been thoroughly field tested during a four month trial with no problems recorded and only positive remarks from the drivers.
