Successful Application Story

A Michigan-based asphalt company came to Grand Rapids Metrology needing a weighing solution to their unique application. They wanted to increase accuracy of their asphalt-loading system while reducing processing time. Grand Rapids Metrology partnered with leading scale supplier, Thurman Scale, to design a quality scale system fitted to the company’s heavy-duty needs.

The resulting solution included an automated asphalt-loading system within the tanks all set above a 140-foot Thurman truck scale. The design allowed trucks to drive onto the scale and while the tank fills the truck with asphalt from above, the automatic loading system shuts the tank valve when the truck has reached an appropriate weight. This truck scale system ensures a consistent level of accuracy while reducing waste from under or over-loaded trucks. The solution worked so efficiently the customer asked Grand Rapids Metrology to install the system in multiple sites across Michigan.
