Vulcan On-Board Scales direct weighing systems for refuse vehicles comprise our heavy-duty, high-accuracy load cells, installed in different configurations depending on the vehicle type, and connected to an advanced meter installed in the truck cab. Our weighing systems integrate seamlessly with most tipping and fixed body refuse vehicles.

Supported vehicle types include:

Front, side, and rear loaders

Roll off and hook lift trucks

Transfer trucks and trailers

Harsh refuse collection environments are no match for EDOC!

Refuse trucks are constantly exposed to rain, mud, dust and road salt, corrosive substances in collected refuse, and pressure-washing, any of which can damage the load cell at the heart of the on-board scale system.

Our revolutionary EDOC coating provides superior, corrosion-proof protection for the load cell, making the weighing system more resilient in the harshest refuse collection conditions.
