Rail Scales and Carcass Weighers

Rail Scales are in-motion scales that attaches to a rail system in a meat plant for transporting carcasses. The rail or unirail scale is an electronic weighing device designed for use with existing overhead monorail systems in the meat processing industry. It is essential to have scales that are working accurately, not only to maintain the high quality of your meat products but also to know your yields and to record exactly what is coming in and out of your plant. After years of consulting with the meat processing industry, we have designed our own accurate and high speed carcass weigher - the ISI 8000.

We also supply the H21-5260 unirail scale from Fairbanks.

The ISI 8000 Dynamic Carcass Weighing System

Our carcass weigher is a four load cell design, incorporating the latest in high speed weighing technology. It is designed to incorporate into your existing rail structure. In high vibration situations it is recommended to suspend independently from the trolley transport system, this as stated is not necessary in all installations. The unit comes in both 24 and 36 inch rail versions. Height of the unit is calculated to clear all existing structures, and is manufactured as such. The unit comes in two capacities 300, and 600 kilograms, which translates to 600, and 1200 pounds.

ISI 8000 Dynamic Carcass Weighing System

Notable Features

The ISI 8000 has an expected throughput of 500 beef head per hour, and 2000 pork. The NTEP and Canadian Weights and Measures process has already begun. Expected time frame for the complete approval process is 90 days.

The design comes with a complete list of options, allowing you to choose the device which best meets your application. Our Dynamic Carcass Weighing System, model ISI 8000 is the ultimate in weighing systems for North American high speed meat product facilities. Some of its best features include:

  • Highest accuracy in the industry - 500 x 0.1 kg, 1100 x .2lb.
  • Fully galvanized and stainless steel construction.
  • 2000 weighments per hour.
  • 24 or 36 inch rail length.
  • Low maintenance and installation costs.
  • No expensive support structure needed.

Fairbanks Static Unirail Model H21-5260 Series

The Fairbanks unirail is a self-contained unit which is supported by your existing rail system. The scale is fully assembled and tested at the factory. The installation is simply a matter of cutting your rail, inserting the scale and attaching it to your rail hangers. No additional overhead structural supports are needed.

H21 - 5260 Unirail Series

Notable Features

The design simplicity of Fairbanks Unirail eliminates routine maintenance. There are no moving parts, no pivots and bearings to require replacement, no error-causing friction. The weighrail is simply supported at each end by rigidly connected bending beam load cells. This rigid construction, combined with stainless steel structural components and watertight load cells, provides a scale with an extraordinary long service life without wear or corrosion. Design simplicity and corrosion-resistant materials are the key to value Fairbanks Unirail. Other features include:

  • Unitized Construction
  • Vibration Suppression
  • Meets P & S Regulations
  • No Moving Parts
  • Hostile Environment
  • Nationwide Service

Rail Scales and Carcass Weighers

Advantages:

  • Rugged Stainless Steel Construction
  • Meets U.S.D.A. Monorail reguations
  • Simple Design
    The unirail has no moving parts so maintenance is significantly reduced. The rigid construction, combined with stainless steel structural components and watertight load cells, provides a scale with an extraordinary long service life without wear or corrosion.
  • Fast
  • Accurate
    The unirail scale's single unit concept adds accuracy by eliminating multiple support points required. This scale can tolerate minor deflection without affecting accuracy because it electronically dampens the effect of vibrations.
  • Vibration Suppression
  • Fits in any monorail system
  • Easy installation
