Cardinal Scale Manufacturing's Low-Profile Railroad Track Scales with Optional Mobile App Readouts

Cardinal Scale’s USA-made LPRA low-profile railroad track scales features heavy-duty rugged steel weighbridges and stainless steel USA-made electronic or hydraulic load cells for optimum quality and longevity.

Cardinal Scale Manufacturing Company’s USA-made low-profile LPRA railroad track scales come with either electronic or hydraulic USA-made stainless steel load cells, up to 270-ton capacity, rugged steel weighbridges, Wi-Fi and mobile app options, NTEP and Measurement Canada legal-for-trade certification, and E-80 Cooper AREMA rating. Twenty different standard models are available from Cardinal Scale in different lengths and capacities to accommodate any combination of car length, and custom applications and configurations are also readily available.

Mounted above ground in a shallow, concrete foundation, Cardinal’s LPRA rail scale is engineered to stabilize shifting ballast resulting in weight errors. Installation is rapid, simple, and can be handled locally requiring usually only about two days. Weighbridge sections arrived assembled, ready to set in, and load cell assemblies are easy to install. Grain dump grating is also available to expedite the unloading process. Accuracy is in accordance with NIST, AAR, and AREMA requirements (railcars uncoupled at both ends).

The UV-protected, anti-corrosion tan powder paint compliments any environment and all weighbridges are shot-blasted and power-washed clean of debris before painting for optimum quality. The low-profile design eliminates the expense and maintenance of a pit meaning construction costs are lower.
