Strainstall UK has designed high performance tension load cells that serve as an effective alternative to load shackles. These load cells can be categorized into three main types: flat plate, 'S' or 'Z' beam and tensile columns.
The column tension load cells include threaded ends that are made from strong stainless steel for higher capacities and high strength aluminum for low capacities. The 'S' or 'Z' type tension load cells offer high accuracy and are widely used in general industrial applications, while the column tension load cells with larger capacity are extremely robust and hence can be used in hazardous areas.
A wide range of tensile load links are also supplied by Strainstall UK.
The main features of the tension load cells are:
Robust and compact
Easy to install
Sealed against dust and water.
