Safe and Efficient Road Treatment
Simultaneous loading of a gritter with minimum volumes of salt, pre-wet and liquid de-icing agent to tackle changing road conditions in good time can easily bring the vehicle close to or over its legal or designed weight limit. At the same time, operators are keen to minimise trips to loading stations as these can seriously hamper efficiency and lead to roads going untreated. This is why overload protection / load optimisation systems became a must–have feature for gritters.
While overload protection and load optimisation systems are a must-have feature to assure utilising maximum payload volumes, most clients request highly accurate load cell based systems. Not only deliver they accurate weighing across the load when composing best combination of substances for the upcoming treatment trip. Their roughly 2% higher accuracy over sheer overload protection systems can calculate to about half a ton more payload, for less trips and better road treatment.
All VPG Onboard Weighing systems come with telematics options, allowing fleet managers to monitor in real time and respond to changing conditions as required.
