Brechbuhler Scales Offers Equipment for a Portion of the Marcellus Shale Project

Brechbuhler Scales offers scales for a portion of the Marcellus Shale project. The rail track scales manufactured by B-TEK Scale weigh sand for the fracking work in Pennsylvania.

Canton, OH, July 23, 2011 --( The Brechbuhler Scales’ Youngstown, Ohio branch is completing the foundation construction for old Thurman scales that they relocated for D&I in Sheffilld PA. This was the first job for the location and their first sand load-out facility which was completed in 2007. They have since grown to multiple locations and have, to date, purchased nine B-TEK truck scales. The largest facility is in Werllsboro and as this area is most central to all drilling. Pittston,
Sheffield and Kittanning are satellites locations with much less traffic.

The most recent scale was installed at a rail yard. Sand is brought in via rail and off loaded with a fracking sand, and then unloaded directly from rail to
truck. The scale was installed before any other equipment was delivered. All of the locations have been built near rail. Some of the monies for D&I equipment purchases have been from government grants for railroad improvements.

All Eastern Region Brechbuhler Scales has since, installed new B-TEK scales for D&I in Pittston, PA one-72’ x 11’ portable-digital, Kittaning, PA, one-84’ x 12’ digital, Wellsboro, PA one-72’ x 12’ digital and Wellsboro, PA six-96’ x 11’ digitals truck scales. These branches include Youngstown, Ohio; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; and Sarver, Pennsylvania. Marcellus operators are investing billions of dollars into Pennsylvania’s economy – from constructing state-of-the-art operating facilities, to building new offices, to leasing land for responsible development and driving economic growth in our rural communities.
