Cardinal Scale Manufacturing Co.’s USA-made, low-profile LPRA railroad track scales come with either electronic or hydraulic USA-made stainless steel load cells, up to 270-tn capacity, rugged steel weighbridges, Wi-Fi and mobile app options, NTEP and Measurement Canada legal-for-trade certification, and E-80 Cooper AREMA rating.

A large variety of models are available in different lengths to accommodate any combination of car length (custom applications also readily available).

Mounted above ground in a shallow, concrete foundation, the LPRA rail scales are 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 arrive assembled and ready to set in, and load cell assemblies are easy to install. Grain dump grating is also available to expedite the unloading process.
