The B-TEK Workhorse platform scale is designed for the most extreme industrial weighing applications. Heavy and frequent material handling vehicle traffic, highly concentrated loads such as steel billets are no problem for the Workhorse. The Workhorse is constructed with wide flange beams and heavy tread plate decking to form a robust weighing platform. NTEP (trade approved) platform capacities range from 20,000 to 40,000 lb. The Workhorse can be mounted above ground or in a pit foundation. B-TEK prides itself in the ability to customize weighing platforms to meet unique requirements so the straight forward scale design of the Workhorse allows almost unlimited platform customization.
