Bromma’s twistlock based container weighing system has been certified to comply with the OIML R51 requirements. The Certificate of Conformity, signed on July 1, has been issued by SP Technical Research Institute of Sweden.
SP is one of the leading notified bodies in Sweden. OIML - The International Organization of Legal Metrology - is an intergovernmental treaty organization which among other things develops and provides international recommendations, which are intended as model regulations for measuring instruments, and which OIML Member States are morally obliged to implement as far as possible. OIML has today 61 member states and an additional 62 corresponding member states.
“We believe we are the first company to get a twistlock based weighing system certified to OIML R51” says Marketing Director Lars Meurling. “The certification process is an extensive process including amongst other things laboratory testing under various temperature conditions, field based testing as well as the electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) of the equipment used. OIML is the most commonly referenced set of recommendations we could find when we started the certification process. This is also confirmed now when the national requirements are being published”, he continues.
There is an increasing interest for Container weight verification solutions that does not affect cycle times and the logistic flows in the terminal.
The new SOLAS requirement that an export container must have a Verified Gross Mass is coming into force today. For terminal operators who want to offer a weighing service, the interest for solutions that does not affect cycle times and will not influence the logistic flows in the terminal is increasing. Bromma's Weight Verification system with load sensors mounted on the spreader twistlocks offers such a solution and the interest for this technology is steadily increasing.
