The STALC3 submersible load cell is designed for use fully submerged in water at pressures up to 7000kPa.  Primarily they are used in triaxial chambers, which are pressurised chambers used for testing the shear strength of core samples taken from the earth, to provide a direct measurement of the axial compression load applied to the sample under test.

In addition to their primary purpose, the STALC3 submersible load cell can be adapted for use in other applications where they will be submerged in fluids including water and oil.

Incorporated within the design is a pressure compensating system to ensure that there is no change in zero or sensitivity when the STALC3 load cell is subjected to external pressure changes.  The STALC3 also features accurate temperature compensation, excellent accuracy and stability, which is essential for the type of long term testing applications in which they are used.

The standard 75mm diameter STALC3 submersible load cell is available in ranges from 0-1kN to 0-100kN, with ranges up to 250kN offered in the same design with a 120mm diameter body.  The STALC3 can be used to measure tension if required; for capacities up to 5kN tension loads up to the cell’s rated capacity can be applied, while for higher capacities tension capacity is limited to 5kN.
