ABOUT THE HY-WEIGH™ SYSTEM

Using four, corner hydraulic elevation jacks, Hy-Weigh™ raises the Container in-situ and the system displays the weight as a simple digital read-out.

Hy-Weigh removes the need for dedicated Container craneage weighing systems or expensive weighbridges and is easily deployed and moved within your facility, as all of the equipment is self-contained on its own specially designed pallet.

Hy-Weigh utilises simple colour coding systems to identify the corners of the Container and the control panel allows for individual corner raising and lowering. The process takes approximately 10 minutes to deploy the system and check a Container weight.

The product is manufactured in the United Kingdom to rigorous quality standards (ISO 9001) and has been CE Marked and product tested by TUV.

The key value we have upheld when designing Hy-Weigh™ is simplicity. We have designed a product with the following benefits:

  • Simple and easy to use
  • Intuitive controls
  • Robust construction
  • High reliability
  • No complex software
    or electronics
  • Large lifting capacity,
    handles uneven loads

DO YOU COMPLY WITH SOLAS, VERIFIED GROSS MASS (VGM) FOR CONTAINER WEIGHT VERIFICATION?

Hy-Weigh™ has been launched to give you a reliable and easy to use solution to complying with the IMO Guidelines Regarding the Verified Gross Mass of a Container Carrying Cargo (SOLAS chapter VI, part A, regulation 2). The SOLAS regulations are mandatory from 1st July 2016 and have been ratified by 162 countries. SOLAS represents 99% of the tonnage of the global merchant fleet and the SOLAS Convention is Binding International Law even without extra National Legislation.

The SOLAS amendments place requirements on shippers to verify the gross mass of their container and provide a signed document to the shipping company and terminal in advance of delivering their container to the port. Without a Verified Gross Mass (VGM), the container will not be loaded aboard ship.

The rules were introduced in response to a series of catastrophic shipping accidents relating to overloaded containers. For example, in January 2007 the MSC Napoli began to break hull in the English Channel. The UK Marine Accident Investigation Branch discovered that of the 660 dry containers that could be weighed, 137 (20%) of them weighed at least 3 tonnes more than their declared weight and the largest difference was 20 tonnes, furthermore the combined weight of the 137 containers was 312 tonnes heavier than the cargo manifest.
