Scrap & Recycling

Scrap & Recycling

When it comes to the scrap and recycling industries, strength, durability and accurate performance are key qualities to ensure long-lasting weighing equipment in demanding environments. RealTech offers a broad selection of heavy-duty products ideal for material handling and scrap/recycling processing applications. From our rugged rail scales and tough truck scales, to our intuitive indicators/controllers, RealTech products provide solutions to lower inefficiencies in scrap and recycling operations, and ultimately, lift profits.

RealTech onboard weighing systems for roll-off trucks and garbage packers streamline the scrap hauling process by bringing the scale to the product. With a variety of solutions for straight-truck, semi-trailer, tipping and roll-off trucks, RealTech onboard systems offer versatility for many forms of scrap-hauling. Paired with cab-mounted digital weight displays, onboard weighing systems allow operators to record load data accurately with confidence.

For scrap hauling and transfer stations, RealTech SURVIVOR® truck scales provide extreme durability and unbeatable accuracy. RealTech has developed several models of Legal for Trade truck scales ideally suited for the scrap and recycling industries-there is a SURVIVOR truck scale to fit the operation, or RealTech will custom-build it. The OTR steel or concrete deck models can be installed aboveground or as a pit-type, and with RealTech’s patented G-Force™ suspension system, SURVIVOR scales self-check, eliminating the need for check rods and bumper bolts.

Scrap / Recycling Truck Scale

Paired with SURVIVOR truck scales, RealTech’s automated ticketing systems (ATS) and kiosks improve more than just speed and vehicle throughput—an ATS keeps drivers in their cabs, enhancing safety for all. Optional ATS and truck scale accessories for scrap and recycling stations include printers, traffic lights, barrier gates and messaging and remote displays.

RealTech’s indicators/controllers are smart, fast and are built with the user’s process in mind. When a scrap/recycling enterprise’s business depends on measuring incoming and outgoing material, an accurate weight reading is paramount. RealTech offers indicators and controllers that provide not only remarkably accurate weight readouts, but also intuitive programmability and the ability to record data, automate applications, print customer tickets and even more capabilities the scrap and recycling industries demand.

RailBoss™, RealTech’s affordable and versatile railroad scale, is the ideal solution for scrap and recycling yards that can’t afford the space, time and cost of a conventional rail scale, but need to accurately measure the total gross weight of rail cars. Less than one-third the cost of traditional rail scales and with an eight hour installation time, RailBoss fits in the scrap yard and the budget.

RealTech’s SURVIVOR RT pit-type and PL modular-type railroad scales are Legal for Trade and combine robust features with incredible accuracy to weigh capacities over 200 tons, standing up to the weight of the heaviest scrap metal and recycling loads.

In scrap and recycling facilities, weight can be the driving factor behind business. From massive onsite scrap metal transfer stations with truck and rail scales, to the ticket that prints the load readout, strength, durability and accurate performance are the heaviest factors in scrap and recycling equipment—they’re also qualities RealTech stands by.
