Road weight restrictions are one of the most difficult laws the trucking industry must follow. Many of the hidden cost include:
BIT Air Scale vs. In-ground Scale
Watch a truck and trailer that is equipped with BIT Air Scales get live loaded on actual in-ground scales. Know what every load weighs before you leave a shippers site.
Our push-to-connect tee fittings install in minutes on the air line feeding your air suspension and transmits weight to the Blue Ink Tech App using wireless Bluetooth.
Enter the axle weights of a loaded truck while loaded and enter the axle weights of an empty truck while empty and you are done.

BIT Air Scale is the most affordable way to get your vehicle's weight on the market. With a short call we will go over:
Typically you will need two sensors, one for each leveling valve. One on the truck and one on the trailer.

Yes, our push-to-connect tee fittings can be installed in minutes on your suspension system air lines.
Our calibration process uses empty and full certified weights to establish two known data points. Once calibration is complete, the app interpolates current weight on all three axles using those data points.
We use the steer axle weights entered during calibration to determine current steer axle weight.
When your weights seem to be getting further from your actual weight tickets it is likely that there is a small leak in your air suspension line, which is a common occurance. The BIT Air Scale sensors are reading the pressure from the suspension and using its calibration function to tell you the weight. If there is a small leak in the line then this can make your readings further off as the air escapes. It is best to push on one of your air bags after sitting for a couple days with no air hooked up to see if the bag is flat before installing the BIT Air Scale.
Pro tip: spray your air suspension and all connections with soapy water. If bubbles appear then you have found the leak. Repair and recalibrate to get accurate readings moving forward.
Trucks may seem like they are always the same size and weight at all times but that is not the case. Trucks consume a lot of fluids and use a lot of rubber. If you enter weights from memory your calibrations will be very inaccurate. Fuel, DEF, anti-freeze, and tire tread are always changing and if you don't use certified scales to get the most accurate weights possible you could be off thousands of pounds on your calibrations.
Trucks consume a lot of fluids and use a lot of rubber. If you enter weights from previous days your scale readings your air scales will be very inaccurate. Fuel, DEF, anti-freeze, and tire tread are always changing and if you don't use certified scales at the time of calibration to get the most accurate weights possible you could be off thousands of pounds/kilograms.
