Our Shear Pin Load Cells and Draw Wire Sensors Deliver Flawless Results in Sub-Zero Temperatures

Applied Measurements were contacted by Victoria University of Wellington to provide reliable and accurate equipment that could operate in the sub-zero temperatures of the Antarctic. Using Applied Measurements’ two customised DBEP shear pin load cells, a WS12 draw wire sensor and four intuitive2 displays, the RICE team were able to successfully extract a 763m deep ice core from an ice cap on Roosevelt Island.

Load Pins and Position Sensors used for Antarctic Research

Applied Measurements needed to design and manufacture a pair of custom load pins for the university that could compensate for temperatures as low as -30degC. The load pin also had a built in ICA4S amplifier that could give a 4-20mA output for them to use to monitor the drilling forces.

The Ultimate in Load Cell Design Flexibility from Applied Measurements

Here at Applied Measurements Ltd we are proud of our extensive range of standard load cells.  These cover ranges less than 1000grams up to 1000 tonnes via our CCD range of column load cells and form a superb basis from which we design and build countless customised load cells. As a UK-based transducer manufacturer boasting over 50 years of design experience within our company we build all manner of load, force, torque, displacement and pressure sensors from scratch according to our customers’ design or modification requirements.  Modification and new design requests are a daily occurrence so our sensor repertoire is constantly growing. Read on for a couple of recent examples of using a stock item and modifying it to our […]

Submersible Compression Load Cell Resists Freeze-Thaw Weathering

Applied Measurements have just designed and manufactured a special version of their compact CCG annular load cell (also known as a ‘ring load cell’ or ‘donut load cell’) for use in a particularly tough application where it is submerged 1 metre deep in potable water, subjected to a force of 160kN (~16 tonnes) and subjected to a repeated cycle of freezing and thawing. The load cell design utilises 17-4PH stainless steel for the sensing element and cover in conjunction with a stainless steel IP68 cable gland, submersible polyurethane cable and a double ‘O’ ring sealing system to ensure that the transducer’s integrity is maintained at all times. The submersible load cells achieved an accuracy of better than 0.5% of rated […]
