Tension and Compression Load Cells | Universal Load Cells

This section illustrates our range of universal tension and compression load cells and force sensors designed for the measurement of both tensile and compressive load, weight and force.  They can be used in mono-directional applications as well as those which cycle between tension and compression constantly.

A range of different designs is available to suit almost every conceivable application, from food and pharmaceutical process monitoring, tank weighing, and process control through to product development, fatigue testing and scientific experimentation.  Our selection of tension and compression load cells offer ranges from 0-25 grams to 0-1500 tonnes, with non-standard ranges available on request.  Styles include S-Beams, canisters, columns, low profile, pancake and load pins.

All tension and compression load cell models can be supplied with analogue or digital instrumentation including amplifiers and signal conditioners, signal digitisers, displays and indicators and wireless radio telemetry equipment.  Calibration traceable to UKAS standards is available on all tension and compression load cells and systems.

Our tension and compression load cells and force sensors can be supplied with installation accessories including mounting bases and custom designed fixtures.
