Load Cells

Compression and damped load cells are two common types of load cells used in industry for level measurement. Compression load cells measure the weight of the load by detecting the compression force applied to the load cell. In level measurement applications, compression load cells are typically installed beneath a tank or vessel, and the weight of the contents in the tank is measured by the load cell. By monitoring changes in the weight of the contents, the level of the tank can be determined. Damped load cells, on the other hand, use a piston and hydraulic fluid to dampen the load cell’s response to changes in the load. This design helps to reduce noise and vibration, which can affect the accuracy of the measurement. In level measurement applications, damped load cells are often used in tanks or vessels that contain liquids with high levels of agitation or turbulence. Both types of load cells have their advantages and disadvantages, and the choice of which to use will depend on the specific application and requirements of the system. For example, compression load cells may be preferred in applications where the load is stable and consistent, while damped load cells may be preferred in applications where the load is subject to high levels of vibration or turbulence that could affect the accuracy of the measurement.

Application features:

  • Accuracy: Load cells are designed to measure weight with high accuracy, making them suitable for use in applications where precise weight measurement is required.
  • Sensitivity: Load cells are sensitive to changes in weight and can detect small variations in load, making them suitable for use in applications where high sensitivity is required.
  • Range: Load cells are available in a range of load capacities, from a few grams to many tons. This makes them suitable for use in applications with a wide range of load requirements.
  • Environment: Load cells can be designed to operate in a variety of environments, including high temperatures, corrosive environments, and explosive atmospheres.
  • Mounting: Load cells can be mounted in a variety of ways, including compression, tension, and bending, making them suitable for use in a wide range of applications.
  • Size: Load cells are available in a range of sizes, from small miniature load cells to large heavy-duty load cells, making them suitable for use in applications with varying space requirements.
  • Output: Load cells can provide different types of output signals, such as analog voltage or current, digital signals, or frequency output, depending on the requirements of the application.
  • Cost: Load cells are available in a wide range of prices, making them suitable for use in applications with varying budget constraints.
