E-Z Weigh Scale

The E-Z Weigh onboard load scale monitors weight of any single, tandem or tri-axle group of an air suspension straight truck, tractor or trailer. The scale measures on-the-ground weight in pounds and kilograms, and its digital gauges are made to withstand extreme temperatures and weather. The scale uses a two-point calibration system to measure to within 300 lb. of actual weight.

Pressure protection valves

The one-way check pressure protection valves protect against leaks in air pressure from the braking system if an air line or valve in an air-operated accessory fails, the company says. The e-coated zinc diecast body prevents corrosion, and the Nitrile diaphragm provides durability. The valves can be used in air suspensions, air seats or cab isolation systems.
