Ravas builds Weigh Beams for SOLAS Method n.2



Ravas (Netherlands) - For goods that are difficult to move on a lift truck, but still need to be weighed for SOLAS purposes, RAVAS supplies weigh beams with a 10 Ton capacity, constructed from legal for trade components and supplied with a calibration certificate. Since the two beams are not structurally connected to each other, any crate or pallet with special dimensions will fit.

Lots of goods with irregular dimensions get shipped around the world in containers (as an example think of crated machinery). Since July the new SOLAS regulations for declaring container weights has become effective, these goods need to be weighed if the SOLAS method n.2 is used.

Their unusual dimensions and frequent out-of-center load center point, make these goods difficult to move on a lift truck, let alone weigh them on one. Even fitting them onto a standard floor scale is a challenge. In order to weigh these goods, RAVAS provides a set of weigh beams that can run up to several meters in length and have a capacity of 10.000 kg. By positioning them on the floor as required, any crate or pallet can be weighed on these beams.

For ease of movement and better positioning, the weigh beams are equipped with handles and wheels. But more importantly, in order to make them suitable for SOLAS applications, the beams are constructed from legal for trade components and supplied with a calibration certificate. Additionally, if required, they can also be supplied with the RAVAS SOLAS App for computing container VGM’s.
